WATCH: New Poltergeist featurette is here to haunt you

April 25th, 2015 by Marc Comments


We have to admit that, while we mostly detest remakes, this is shaping up to be a promising looking scare fest.

But then, if you’re going to copy, you may as well do it from the best…

Here’s director Gil Kenan and producer Sam Raimi talking about the movie;

Produced by Sam Raimi (Spiderman 1-3, Oz, Evil Dead, The Grudge) and directed by Gil Kenan, POLTERGEIST stars Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt and Jared Harris

Synopsis: Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (“Spiderman,” “Evil Dead”, “The Grudge”) and director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”) contemporise the classic 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.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
