“Poltergeist” reboot is actually a sequel

May 22, 2013

Moviehole.net revealed that the Gil Kenan-directed and Sam Raimi-produced reboot of POLTERGEIST (much like the Evil Dead remake) exists in the same world as the previous Poltergeist films. So while it is a “reboot” of the franchise, it’s also somewhat of a sequel – taking place years after the Freeling’s were ran out of town.

They explain that, in one scene in the new film, the kids find some things behind the sliding panel in the attic like the Freeling’s possessions, intentionally left behind. There’s the Star Wars bed sheets (from Robbie’s room), a black-and-white TV set, and some Christmas decorations.

Although the new film may possess new characters and somewhat of a different storyline, all the “familiar beats” from the original Poltergeist film will be in it.

I’d rather have a “sequel” than another remake of a popular series.  Hopefully the curse doesn’t cause problems for the production.
