More Info:
  • Justin Lowe

    While Hooper favored shock value and jump scares, Kenan and cinematographer Javier Aguirresarobe construct far more fluid sequences as the camera glides and hovers over its subjects, reserving the most impactful shots for the climactic scenes, particularly a concluding sequence that’s particularly thrilling.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Clark Collis

    The only really frightening thing about the 2015 version of Poltergeist is how haunted it is by the original.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    This serviceable remake sticks fairly closely and smartly to the same plot, with the same scary objects and even the line, “They’re here.”

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mark Olsen

    The new Poltergeist is a pleasant enough diversion, better as a low-simmer suspense story than a full-blown effects extravaganza.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Neil Genzlinger

    All in all there’s not much to complain about here, except that — as with a lot of revisited classics — the story’s not as revolutionary as you remember it. For veterans of the 1982 Poltergeist, it’s more like scary but pleasant nostalgia.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Phil Hoad

    It’s a shame Kenan can’t muster his own bit of gothic shorthand for post-credit crunch America, but the film still has a fluid, 3D-orientated immediacy.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Eddie Goldberger

    It doesn't reinvent the wheel, but Poltergeist is a solid, surprisingly effective chiller.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Mike McCahill

    Mostly it’s a scare machine, and in this respect Kenan’s is the more efficient telling, its VFX lubricating all that now creaks about the original.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    Poltergeist, while entertaining, has more in common with slick, audience-goosing spookers like "Insidious" and "Sinister" than with the imaginative original.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Matt Glasby

    Very tame, but saved from the remake scrapheap by Sam Rockwell's surprisingly touching performance and a final reel that – briefly – takes the material somewhere new.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    Less a steadily escalating thriller than a guided tour through a county-fair-style haunted house, Poltergeist offers some quality jump scares, and Kenan has a knack for staging solid individual setpieces. But he proves weirdly incapable of modulation or mood setting here.

    Variety Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    Poltergeist is professional and slick and entirely fine. It's also unnecessary in every way.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Kate Erbland

    There are some chills to be had here, but they taper out exactly when the action should really be ratcheting up, and the film’s tension burns out so quickly that it might as well have been sucked into an inter-dimensional portal of its own.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Jesse Hassenger

    The most retro thing about the remake is its specific, outdated utility: If anyone still patronizes video stores with hard copies, and if those stores don’t happen to have the original Poltergeist (or Insidious) in stock on a Friday night, this version might do the trick.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    There's something missing and it becomes apparent early on. The movie isn't scary - not even a little bit.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    The remake grows less interesting as it goes, with final scares dipping into surprising lameness.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    If you’re going to remake Poltergeist without the whole TV angle, "Insidious" already kind of did that. To be fair, this new Poltergeist isn’t anything special, either. But it’s not a travesty, and that feels like cause for brief celebration.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Fionnuala Halligan

    A good cast including Sam Rockwell and Jared Harris wander around sincerely in what feels, at times, almost a shot-by-shot remake, and at others, an obstinately wrong-footed exercise in dabbling with the narrative.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Randy Cordova

    Ultimately, the whole affair is forgettable. The original film was promoted with the tagline "It knows what scares you." If there was a truth-in-advertising law regarding films, this movie's ad copy would read: "Poltergeist: Meh."

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Nick de Semlyen

    A disappointingly tame and unimaginative effort, which throws away much of what was best-loved about the original and fails to find worthy replacements.

    Empire Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Blase actors rob this of any prayer of being scary.

    Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    There are a few decent performances, a nice riff on the technology fears that drove the original movie, and a centerpiece of horror that works, but never once do you get the feeling that the people behind this remake are here because of artistic passion or creative drive.

    RogerEbert.com Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    Poltergeist ultimately plays like the most perfunctory of remakes, one born of rights ownership and title marketability rather than a burning desire on anyone’s part to do something interesting or provocative with a classic. The 1982 original remains unassailable, all the more so when stood side by side with its pipsqueak descendant.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Charles Bramesco

    Though the memory of Hooper’s picture haunts every frame of nü-Poltergeist, Kenan’s will fade unseen into the great beyond first.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    To call Poltergeist laughable is not the same thing as saying it’s bad (although it is that, too.) It’s just that it seems less interested in scaring you than in making you chuckle. At least on that score it succeeds.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Clayton Dillard

    It's the cinematic equivalent of a pat on the back accompanied by a slap in the face.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • William Goss

    Makes largely cosmetic changes to the material without offering much in the way of distinctive frights.
