Take one little girl, one staticky television screen, and the infamous phrase, “They’re here,” and you have the beginning of some serious family problems. This new trailer for the remake of Poltergeist  stays true to 1982 original’s formula, but with a flat screen.

The Sam Raimi-produced reboot stars Sam Rockwell in the story of a suburban family who is tortured by not just “a few pissed off spirits,” but a daughter-abducting poltergeist. The new trailer seems to promise us a faithful remake, with its own inter-dimensional portal in a closet, a psychic who warns them that of course their house was built on a cemetery, and that weird psycho clown doll.
