“Poltergeist” (2015) is an unnecessary and generally lackluster remake of the 1982 classic; I’d give it a 5 out of 10.
I wouldn’t recommend seeing this movie out of curiosity about how modern special effects might update the story. They’re good, but not great. The 80’s practical effects of the original worked far better.
I also wouldn’t recommend seeing this movie because you’re a Sam Rockwell fan. The guy is amazing, but the script here doesn’t let him shine. He’s miscast as a vaguely ineffectual and somewhat unlikable Dad.
I just can’t recommend paying the ticket price for this movie at all, if you’ve got the original lying around on DVD — the first film offered far more charm and spooky fun.
