It contemporizes the 1982 classic about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. When terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever. Kenan directs from a screenplay by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer David Lindsay-Abaire. In addition to Raimi, the producers are Rob Tapert, p.g.a. (“Evil Dead”) and Roy Lee, p.g.a. (“The Departed”). The film is executive produced by J.R. Young (“The Grudge 3”), Audrey Chon (“Changeling”), John Powers Middleton (“The LEGO® Movie”), and Becki Cross Trujillo (“Snitch”). POLTERGEIST stars Sam Rockwell (“Moon”), Rosemarie DeWitt (“Rachel Getting Married”), Jared Harris (“Mad Men”) and Jane Adams (“Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”). Rockwell and DeWitt play suburban parents Eric and Amy Bowen, Harris portrays Carrigan Burke, a paranormal expert turned reality TV personality, and Adams plays a professor of paranormal psychology. The cast also includes talented newcomers Saxon Sharbino, Kyle Catlett and Kennedi Clements, who play the Bowen children Kendra, Griffin and Madison, respectively. The film’s creative production and design team includes director of photography Javier Aguirresarobe, ASC (“The Others”), production designer Kalina Ivanov (“Little Miss Sunshine”), editors Jeff Betancourt (“The Exorcism of Emily Rose”) and Bob Murawski, ACE (“Spider-Man”), costume designer Delphine White (“Scanners”) and composer Marc Streitenfeld (“Prometheus”). POLTERGEIST updates an iconic brand, creating a classic haunted house tale that plays to our innermost fears. It presents a family like ours, in a house like ours – but one that finds itself caught in an otherworldly trap. The film is released in 3D, which enhances its scares and thrilling, edge-of-your-seat suspense. POLTERGEIST originated with a screenplay by David Lindsay-Abaire, winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for his play “Rabbit Hole.” Lindsay-Abaire is known for creating highly engaging characters through sophisticated and layered story lines. Director Gil Kenan remembers, “When I read David’s script I understood there was a way to bring the POLTERGEIST story to life in a new way, and through it create a modern and terrifying story of an American family under siege.” Producer Sam Raimi notes that Kenan was the ideal choice to bring the story to life. “Gil has a lot of experience with building suspense and scares, like he did with [his hit animated feature] ‘Monster House.’ That film would present suspenseful scenes – and then it would surprise audiences with an unexpected joke. Sometimes Gil would build suspense, and there’d be a beat where nothing happened, and then he’d present a big scare. “The art of suspense-building is about timing and delivery and playing upon audiences’ expectations,” Raimi continues. “Gil has become a master at that, and I think POLTERGEIST is really going to keep audiences on edge.” A FAMILY UNDER SIEGE Both POLTERGEIST and the 1982 original give audiences a rollercoaster ride of thrills and fright with a story about the abduction of a family’s youngest child by supernatural and increasingly hostile forces. The rest of the clan then wages a gruelling battle to get her back safely. But the new film updates the story’s perspective, place and characters. Unlike the original “Poltergeist,” which was set in a comfortable economic time during the 1980s, this film is situated in the rapidly fading, disenfranchised American ideal we know as suburbia. © 2015 Twentieth Century Fox and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures Inc.
