Poltergeist is a summer horror movie not to miss as the 1982 classic is given a makeover by director Gil Kenan and producer Sam Raimi.



Poltergeist is set to be only the third feature film of Kenan's directing career so far, while Raimi is no stranger to this genre with the likes of The Evil Dead and The Evil Dead II already under his belt.

The movie has already produced some quite creepy trailers and now the first clip from the movie has arrived showing the character of Madison Bowen talking to the television... but who is she talking to?

Raimi and Kenan contemporise the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever.

Sam Rockwell is set to lead an all-star cast as he takes on the central role of Eric Bowen. He is joined on the cast list by Jared Harris, Rosemarie DeWitt, Saxon Sharbino, Kennedi Clements, Kyle Catlett, and Nicholas Braun - a terrific mix of established stars and up and coming talent.

Kennedi Clements takes on the role of Madison - who features in the new clip - and this will mark the first feature film of her young acting career. However, she is no stranger to the camera having worked on TV series such as Rogue and Eve of Destruction.

We are big fans of Rockwell here at FemaleFirst and it is always great to see him back on the big screen; this is the first of two projects that we are going to see him star in this year.

This summer film season has a couple of horror movies that you need to watch out for if you are a fan of this genre... could Poltergeist be the one that has you jumping out of your seat?

Poltergeist is released 22nd May.
