After a number of trailers and TV spots, it's quite clear that the iconic clown from the original 1982 horror classic Poltergeist is responsible for one of this remake's biggest scares. A new poster has arrived for the new haunted house thrill ride, and it showcases the not-so-funny doll cracking an evil grin before it leaps off the toy shelf with its cruel intentions. Don't be afraid, it's only a movie!
Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi takes over from Steven Spielberg as producer on Poltergeist, with director Gil Kenan stepping in for original director Tobe Hooper. Together, they bring a contemporized spin on this legendary tale about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever.
20th Century Fox and MGM will release Poltergeist this summer, with a cast that includes Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt and Jared Harris. Will the movie be as good as the original? We'll finally get our answer when the movie hits theaters this May. In the meantime, check out this clown. He may not know much...But he knows what scares you!
