Poltergeist (2015) 
Another Hollywood Remake.
2.5/4 stars

Remakes are normally a blight upon Hollywood with very few exceptions.

Now that we got that statement out of the way, this film while not an exception isn't terrible. If this were a standalone movie instead of a remake it would have been great. However having to compare this movie to the original, it falls flat. I enjoyed SOME of the acting, the little girl's acting not at all. The effects while interesting aren’t up to par with the original, the soundtrack most certainly did not compare. Some creepy scenes didn’t quite make up for the ham-handed product placement and I was also disappointed by the lack of homage to the first film. I missed the face ripping scene, the staircase, the dog… the list can go on.

Having said all that… it’s truly not that bad. I’ve seen much, much, much worse. I would recommend it to people, especially to those who dislike gore horror. I would buy it for 10 bucks or less on blu-ray but no more.
