‘Poltergeist’ offers nothing. It may not be an absolutely awful watch, but there’s nothing about this that’s good unfortunately. The story is largely predictable and plain, none of the cast give anything close to a performance that’s worth remembering. There aren’t many, if any, scares either – not great for a film in this genre.
As for the onscreen talent, it’s slim pickings… not even Jared Harris’ late appearance could save things. If I had to pick a standout, away from Harris, it would be Sam Rockwell. The two youngest kids, Kyle Catlett and Kennedi Clements, aren’t terrible in fairness.
Not one I’ll be revisiting. Yawnful.
I had huge reservations about watching this remake, which I felt was completely unnecessary. It wasn’t as bad as I had anticipated, and that the bad reviews at the time gave me the impression I should fear or avoid watching it. The special effects were pretty good, and Sam Rockwell, Jared Harris and Jane Adams (how wonderful it was to see her again, after her exceptional work in ‘Happiness’!) sold the film for me. I knew what to expect after liking, but not loving, director Gil Kenan’s earlier animated ‘Monster House’, but I was intrigued how his energetic directing would transfer to live-action work.
I think they could have made it more suspenseful and scary, but I’m not really sure that was their intention. I think they were going for a family experience with some thrills, chills and laughs…such as the recent ‘Ghostbusters’ remake was going for. If that was the case, then in that regard it was quite successful. I’m looking forward to re-watching this eventually with my 13-year-old son, horror-film aficionado, Julian, who like me adored the original.
If I was to make the perfect ‘Poltergeist’ film, I would have taken the same exact Steven Spielberg script and simply updated the special effects. I think that would have been a more successful approach.
Sam Rockwells acting killed the movie from the get go, it gets really over the top and enters into whimsical near the end. The CGI affects are great and mystifying at times, but the horrible writing and acting gave this movie no hope, which is a shame because I really was hoping the reviews were not accurate.
Was this made for TV?
I was a huge Poltergeist fan when i was a little kid and was really scared of the original movies when i saw them on TV in the late 80s or early 90s. It had everything a good movie should have. a good script, good actors, good director… this one had none of those. the actors feel unmotivated. the script was rewritten to add the typical 21century Hollywood movie formula and the director didn’t know what he was doing anyway…
don’t watch this remake… stay with the original! its scarier anyway, even today!
