​​THE WEBER MOVIE COUNTDOWN

POLTERGEIST (2015)

The remake of Poltergeist turns out to be # 48 of 2015. And let me tell you, you will not find a more routine predictable one than this film. And that's even if you haven't seen the original version. Sam Rockwell and wife Rosemary DeWitt and family are forced to downsize because he's been out of work. So they choose the house built on top of a graveyard with angry ghosts. And the fun soon starts. Rockwell plays his character a bit off, which helps, and the trio of kids playing the trio of kids are also very good. Despite that, and some interesting and funny references to the original story, this was as bland and as tame as I've ever found a movie. Clearly a rental but not a very scary rental.
