New ‘Poltergeist’ teases creepy tree and ‘What are you afraid of’

“There are ghost stories, and then there’s Poltergeist,” the first TV spot begins, paying homage to the 1983 classic by director Tobe Hooper, which was produced by Steven Spielberg.

Now filmmaker Sam Raimi (Spider-Man, Evil Dead, The Grudge) and director Gil Kenan (Monster House) offer a contemporary version of the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. When the terrifying ghosts snatch the family’s young daughter, they reach out for help and attempt to rescue her at all costs.
