The only scary thing about Director Gil Kenan’s remake of the 1982 classic Poltergeist is that he and Writer David Lindsay-Abaire think they’ve created something scary.
This film is pabulum compared to just about any horror film I’ve seen since the laughable Paranormal Activity 4 in 2012.  Not that this one is laughable. It’s more sad that better use could not have been made of the usually wonderful Rosemarie DeWitt and Sam Rockwell.  And it’s a dishonor to the excellent story originally created by Steven Spielberg.

Skip this and see the 1982 version.

I give this Poltergeist a 2 out of 5.
