Poltergeist Remake First Photos: They’re Here!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The ghosts are back and they’re haunting Carol Anne in our first photos from the highly anticipated remake of Poltergeist.

The first Poltergeist arrived in the early '80s and showed that Steven Spielberg could also do pure haunted house horror. Between his script and Tobe Hopper’s direction, the film became an instant classic.

This time out, the remake comes from producer Sam Raimi (a man who got his start in horror, before going on to make Spider-Man and Oz The Great and Powerful).

Fox has released the first series of stills and they feature our new Carol Anne, eight-year-old Kennedi Clements. 

If you’re wondering if that iconic shot is in this set we’ve got featured below, yes, yes, it is. As a sequel is bound to do, they’ve upped the ante, we think. Instead of staring into a snowy TV screen, this time out, Carol Anne is welcoming a screen full of eerie hands!

Poltergeist is set to land in theaters July 24 and features Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt as the parents, with Jared Harris stepping into the iconic role of the supernatural expert who hopefully will still utter that iconic line, “This house is clean.”

Even though we know it is not at all!
