Poltergeist Image

We’ve been hearing about a remake of the 1982 Tobe Hooper-directed and Steven Spielberg-produced horror classic Poltergeist for quite some time now, but, unlike a bunch of other MGM remakes, haven’t yet seen it go into production.

The remake is being produced by The Evil Dead director Sam Raimi (who’s also a producer on the remake of his own movie, Evil Dead), and now MGM has found their director.

Gil Kenan, who’s best known for directing the dark computer animated performance capture feature Monster House, has been chosen to helm the Poltergeist remake.

And round ‘n’ round we go!

Remakes of movies like RoboCop and Poltergeist have been around for quite a while now, but appeared to be casualties of the many financial complications faced by MGM recently. Since then, the studio has figured some things out, made a couple moves, and saved their two top properties in The Hobbit and James Bond 23.

Next up for MGM was getting a trio of remakes of theirs back into motion. It’s being reported that thought-to-be-deceased remakes of the previously mentioned RoboCop and Poltergeist, as well as a remake of Mr. Mom are said to be back on and currently in motion.

Zelda Rubinstein

Sad news being reported by The Boston Herald and many other news outlets today. Zelda Rubinstein, the 4-foot, 3-inch tall actress who played the spirit-fighting psychic in 1982’s Poltergeist has passed away at the age of 76.

After suffering a heart attack, she had been in a hospital for two full months with multiple illnesses before recently being taken off of life support. Reports earlier this month that she was near-death were met with contrary reports that she was actually getting better and that rumors of her demise were premature. But as hard as she appears to have fought, she has now sadly lost that battle.

Poltergeist

In case you haven’t been informed yet, yes, the 1982 Tobe Hooper directed, Steven Spielberg written horror classic Poltergeist is being remade. On top of that, we now know that it’s being remade really soon. Shock Till You Drop is reporting that MGM has set a November 24, 2010 release date for the remake, placing it on Thanksgiving weekend of next year.

Considering the fact that the movie only has a script written by Juliet Snowden and Stiles White (Boogeyman, Knowing), and a director in Vadim Perelmen (House of Sand and Fog), with no actors cast yet, it’s assumed that it will be a rather quick production to meet that deadline.

9 Chilling Quotes From Children in FilmFrom writer/director David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight) comes a new supernatural horror film, The Unborn, which stars Gary Oldman (Harry Potter), Cloverfield‘s Odette Yustman, and Twilight‘s Cam Gigandet. In the film, which opened this weekend, a possessed child whispers, “Some people are doorways.”

Typically, the children in horror movies are either the unwilling messengers of doom or are evil themselves. Either way, the dialogue these kids have to spout is usually pretty eerie and often not something you’d want to hear coming out of the mouths of babes.

In honor of the release of The Unborn, here’s a look at 9 chilling quotes spoken by children in some of our favorite horror/thriller films.
