Poltergeist Movie Review


Just another reason to leave well enough alone when it comes to remaking movies.

Remaking movies is the current fad right now in Hollywood and it's not a bad one, if done right. I should've known that this movie was going to suck when I saw that it was rated PG-13, nothing good can ever come from a horror movie that is rated PG-13. Honestly that's one of the most backwards things you can do with a movie like this. I mean granted the trailer is what lured me in, oh yea and my date wanting to go see it. The movie was pretty much a let down in the end. We both were hyped and were ready to jump, but by the end of the movie, we were both pretty much like wondering if that was it.

The cast was ok, the kids seemed more whiny that actually scary, but the parents played the role pretty well. I didn't get the feeling of being scared senseless like I should have been, but like I said, you won't get that with a PG-13 movie rating. When I watch a scary movie, I want to be scared, not laugh at all of the dumb things people do in these movies. But at last this was a wasted attempt at remaking a classic, which was rated R if I'm not mistaken. The special effects were on par and didn't lack a second in that department. But for the most part, I didn't like this movie.

Would I recommend this movie? Depends on the person doing the watching. If you're not into the hardcore horror movie scene, then yea I would recommend it. But if you get annoyed at plot holes and never really being scared, then this movie isn't for you. IMO, they should have left well alone and made another movie. But that's just my two cents though.

If you saw this, how did you like it? Did it scare you or did you just laugh at most of the movie? Leave it in the comments below.

Until next time guys.
