Yeah I might've been on board for a Poltergeist remake but I can't imagine they won't fuck this up. The original is too severe, they'll back off that in some way and the changes will start rolling from there. Pass.

Why can't they just come up with their own original ideas instead of remaking someone else's. The American film industry is crap.

Agreed, I have zero faith in this film. They're going to PG-13 the shit out of it.
