Poltergeist (Sam Rockwell / Rosemarie DeWitt) | Anatomy of a Movie

AOM hosts Phil Svitek & Demetri Panos discuss Poltergeist. Poltergeist is a 2015 American 3D horror film directed by Gil Kenan, written by David Lindsay-Abaire and produced by Sam Raimi. A reboot and remake of producer Steven Spielberg‘s and director Tobe Hooper‘s 1982 film of the same name, the film stars Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Jared Harris, and Jane Adams. The film was released on May 22, 2015, by 20th Century Fox. It received mixed reviews from critics, and has grossed over $26 million. All seems well for Eric Bowen (Sam Rockwell), wife Amy (Rosemarie DeWitt) and their three children as they move into their new house in the suburbs of Illinois. Soon, youngest daughter Maddy (Kennedi Clements) begins talking to an imaginary friend, or so the family thinks. It’s not long before sinister spirits wreak havoc in the home, holding Maddy captive and forcing the parents to consult a team of parapsychologists who engage the supernatural entities in a battle for the girl’s freedom.
