Poltergeist is not very subtle
5 second plot: A family moves to a new house that was built on top of an old cemetery. The minute they move in the ghosts of all the dead people that are buried there manifest themselves. And they are not friendly ghosts.
5 second review: The cast is good. The references to the original are okay. The original was subtle (kind of), the remake however is one big in your face all out BOO. It's rushed, a bit silly for a present-day audience and the family is just too relaxed when their little girl goes missing. I'm afraid this remake will not be remembered long.
