  • It doesn't reinvent the wheel, but Poltergeist is a solid, surprisingly effective chiller. show more

  • While Hooper favored shock value and jump scares, Kenan and cinematographer Javier Aguirresarobe construct far more fluid sequences as the camera glides and hovers over its subjects, reserving the most impactful shots for the climactic scenes, particularly a concluding sequence that’s particularly thrilling. show more

  • A good cast including Sam Rockwell and Jared Harris wander around sincerely in what feels, at times, almost a shot-by-shot remake, and at others, an obstinately wrong-footed exercise in dabbling with the narrative. show more

    This movie is absolutely terrible. I really wanted to like this movie and I see usually two movies per week. The 1982 film is a classic with engagement of characters and good acting and directing. This movie is none of that. It is cheap low end with really bad acting and terrible directing. One plus side the special effects are descent. I usually like remakes but not this one! Also to make it even available in 3D is a joke. I did see it in 3D so it was an even bigger waste of money. This should have gone straight to DVD.
