The new ‘Poltergeist’ looks the same as the old ‘Poltergeist’

I don't know what else there is to say about the “Poltergeist” remake at this point except that it looks like the same damn movie as the original. As I wrote about previously, the first trailer (above) essentially plays like a series of “greatest hits” covers from the original film, and the first clip (via Collider) again betrays that, aside from a minor alteration to the 1982 version's most iconic quote, there may be nothing much new at all about Gil Kenan's (“Monster House,” “City of Ember”) take on the material.

Check out the clip below and see for yourself.

“Poltergeist” hits theaters on May 22.
