Poltergeist just cries for a remake, doesn’t it? There’s no way any of the young kids today can relate to a film without high-def TVs, cellphones and MTV approved actors! Yes, it totally needs an update…

I can’t say this is good news. Boogeyman couldn’t scare anyone over the age of 15. So, how exactly are these two going to properly remake Poltergeist when nothing they’ve written so far managed to outdo the 26-year-old original?
