I always wonder if youngsters today experience these remakes with the same intensity as we did the originals.

I love the original and also enjoy the sequels,even part 3 to some extent,I'm not personally against remakes,I do tend to watch them out of curiosity more than anything though.

The last 2 movies I saw at the theatres were horror remakes,I went to the midnight showings of both - the last house on the left (there was only about 8 people in the cinema and that includes the wife and i) and the Friday the 13th remake.

From personal experience I don't think i have yet to see a remake that come's close to the original.

That's a good point you bring up there johnny,to a lot of them especially if they've never seen the original on what it is based on it's probably going to feel all fresh and new,to the likes of us who have all we are likely to be doing while viewing it is keep making comparisons and probably criticsms's.

PS. I hope the people on the set of this one don't end up with the poltergeist curse!

Surprisingly this one has caught my interest. Most remakes are for the birds but this might turn out for the better since Raimi is involved.

Most of the horror remakes I've seen were acceptable but nothing overly bad with the exception being Halloween II. Rob Zombie is terrible when it comes to film.

I think that they can and most certainly will make it scarier but they will never get the same feel the original had.
And based on the trailer, i can say that i don´t care for some of the cast.

Agree with JCUs first thought aboit this peaking my interest while other 80 remaxe do not... like Reddawn, Halloween and Friday the 13th. Sometimes a sequel loox more attractive to me. Like the new MadMax film coming up.

You can never replicate the feeling of the original because so much more is required to do so than just the film.

1982 was a much different time for films. You didn't see the sheer amount of shock effect like we see now and people weren't generally accustomed to seeing a film like Poltergeist. It wasn't a low budget cheesy B movie. It was a relatively "high" budgeted film with a compelling story, quality effects and a very good cast.

Today, for the most part, you tend to get a crappy story, terrible CGI and a cast that wouldn't be able to make it in a high school play.

The trailer made me want to see it but I've been burned. Hopefully there are more compelling parts than what was shown in the teaser.

I bet many people can remember how it felt seeing the original either in the theater or in my case, late night on HBO. I don't think I slept for weeks after seeing it.

The is a 59 second trailer does nothing to whet the appetite. It doesn't make me want to go and see it.

Without knowing what it was, it happened to start playing on some website as I moused over the page and I found it interesting. The iconic clown scene compelled me but I hope it isn't the case where the best scenes are shown in the trailer like we've been subjected to many times prior.

Probably not going to see it. Or at least not until it becomes available on Netflix/Bluray. And if those are the best scenes the movie hastto offer in the trailer. Then it looks like I won't be missing much.

No No No.....this looks awful. Watch the Original. The behind the scenes stuff about the original cast is so much more interesting too than this badly acted remake, you can tell how bad it will be just from the previews.
