The original Tobe Hooper spookfest gets an update with this remake from director Vadim Perelman, best known for HOUSE OF SAND AND FOG and THE LIFE BEFORE HER EYES.
"Rockwell and DeWitt give the material their own likable spin..." - 05/22/2015 A.V. Club
"DeWitt, Rockwell, Harris and Adams are among the most dependable performers around today, and much of what works in the new film is thanks to them..." - 05/22/2015 Los Angeles Times
"Its infrequent and particularly satisfying when the remake of an especially memorable film equals or exceeds the experience of the original....Director Gil Kenan not only delivers on the promise of Hoopers POLTERGEIST, but significantly raises the stakes for similar PG-13 fare." - 05/21/2015 Chicago Sun-Times
"Rockwell, as ever, is twitchily brilliant, whether cracking jokes or just cracking up..." - 05/19/2015 Total Film
"[T]he 2015 POLTERGEIST is almost identical to the classic 1982 scare machine." - 05/22/2015 Entertainment Weekly
"Gil Kenan directs the new incarnation, which has lots of 21st-century updates and is available in a 3-D version that has some tasty flourishes." - 05/22/2015 New York Times
