If you're as excited as I am about a Poltergeist reboot to the 1982 classic horror flick, you'll be pretty into this article. You may recall arguably the most iconic scene from the movie in which Carol Anne (Heather O'Rourke) wakes up to a staticky television set that an evil spirit is using to contact the little girl. When the poltergeist(s) reaches out to her and then hovers over her sleeping family behind her she announces, "They're here."
Here's the original clip to refresh your memory:
The new version obviously pays homage to the old scene, but with a few unique tweaks. In the reboot, the young girl's name is Madison Bowen and she is played by Kennedi Clements. In this newer (improved?) version, her older brother sees the young girl having a conversation with the television. He's justifiably freaked out by this strange behavior (which is super creepy and well acted out) and frantically asks his sister what's happening. Instead of "They're here," Madison almost regretfully says, “They’re coming.”
Check out this awesome synopsis of the film:
Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (“Spiderman,” “Evil Dead”, “The Grudge”) and director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”) contemporize the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever.
This has my attention.
