So the re-makings of a Poltergeist film totally caught us off guard...but it really didn't. Moviehole.net was one of the first mediums to drop the details of the sequel in which a family find some of the belonging of the Freelings...and the hell breaks loose. No word yet on whether that fat psychic will be in the pic, but chances are she went to the light sometime ago unless she made a pact with the devil (she can do that, you know).
Blood Disgusting reports about the sequel's plot:
The new version follows Eric Bowen and his family who, after he loses his job, relocate to a new town to start anew. His daughter, Madison, is abducted, making him truly understand what’s important in life: family. In the new version, Eric’s wife, Amy, can communicate with the dead.
Another interesting new character is Carrigan Burke, a television personality who hosts “Haunted House Cleaners.” The supernatural doesn’t scare this guy. Dr. Brooke Powell is Carrigan’s ex-wife who is a parapsychologist at a local university. Her team investigates the supernatural events surrounding the disappearance of the Bowen girl.
If Craig T. Nelson shows up, even in a cameo, I'm there damnit!
