Later today, we'll get to see the first full trailer for 20th Century Fox and MGM remake of the horror classic Poltergeist. But first, we get a small sneak peek at the first footage with a trailer preview. Any fan of the original will surely remember this terrifying scene, which includes a creepy clown that has a mind of it's own. You may want to get your hand ready to cover that face!

Taking over on this new version from producer Steven Spielberg is legendary horror director Sam Raimi, who is working alongside Monster House and City of Ember director Gil Kenan. The story this time out follows the Bowens, who move into a house that is plagued by malevolent spirits. When the terrifying supernatural forces begin to escalate their attacks and take the youngest daughter, the family must come together to rescue her. They are forced to seek out the help of a respected supernatural researcher and clairvoyant played by Jared Harris.

With a cast headlined by Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt, Poltergeist promises to be one of the more memorable remakes of late. Before we get our first full look, take a little taste of this faithful homage to the 1982 Tobe Hooper classic as one child's bedroom becomes the thing of nightmares:
