POLTERGEIST Reboot to be "More of a Kids' Movie"

After the original scared the pants off a whole generation of children (and adults), it looks as if the POLTERGEIST reboot is to be a PG-type kids’ film. It's worth noting that the original was given a 15 certificiate.

Speaking to Collider, star Sam Rockwell revealed, “The 10-year-old boy is really the protagonist this time. JoBeth Williams was the protagonist for the most part in the first one and now the kid, it’s really through his point-of-view. So it’s more of a kids’ movie. So I don’t know if it’s gonna be like rated-R scary.”

Rockwell added, “It’s not like CONJURING type of scary. It’s a different kind of movie. It’s more of an adventure. It’s essentially a child abduction film when you come down to it. I mean, the original POLTERGEIST is too.”

Production on the relaunching of this famed horror series has now wrapped, with a July 24th release currently planned. As well as Rockwell, POLTERGEIST will also feature Rosemarie DeWitt, Jared Harris and Nicholas Braun, with Gil Kenan directing.

I used to have an original Poltergiest American one-sheet and the original movie was also rated a PG believe it or not.
