Pro-tip: if you're scared of clowns or creepy dolls, you might want to skip the new ‘Poltergeist’ trailer. If you're all good with evil clown dolls coming to life and attacking young children, what are you waiting for?! You can watch the new ‘Poltergeist’ trailer above.

‘Poltergeist’ First Look: They’re Heeere...(And They Look Awfully Familiar)

The original 1984 ‘Poltergeist’ is one of the best horror films ever made. With its PG rating, it’s also one of the great Trojan Horses of genre cinema. Parents show it to their kids, thinking it will be a a little scary but totally family-friendly experience, only to realize too late (usually around the point where the guy hallucinates his face being torn off) that the movie means business. So, when we dive into the first look at the upcoming ‘Poltergeist’ remake, we do so with the skepticism of people who think the original masterpiece holds up as well today as it did over 30 years ago.

I Still Like ‘Spider-Man 3,’ Even If Sam Raimi Doesn’t

Raimi is echoing what most critics and fans have been telling him for the last seven years. ‘Spider-Man 3’ had the lowest Rotten Tomatoes rating of any film in the franchise (until this year’s ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2’), and it made less money in the U.S. than either of its predecessors. For many, it represents not only the lowest-point of the Spider-Man series, but for comic-book movies as a whole; the conclusion of Raimi’s Spider-trilogy routinely ranks among the worst superhero movies ever. (See: this, and this, and this, and this, and this.) No wonder Spidey looks so sad on the ‘Spider-Man 3’ teaser poster; everyone hates his movie.

Sam Raimi Admits That He’s Not a Fan of ‘Spider-Man 3,’ Either

Although Sam Raimi’s first two ‘Spider-Man’ films were mostly critically-acclaimed and loved by fans, most look back upon his ‘Spider-Man 3' with a mixture of confusion, disdain, and sadness—mostly due to a plot that feels less focused and Topher Grace’s hilariously, cartoonishly bad performance as Eddie Brock, aka Venom. But don’t feel too bad, you guys, because Raimi is admitting that he’s not a fan of ‘Spider-Man 3,’ either.

When you hear the name Sam Raimi, you think of one of two things: 'Evil Dead' or 'Spider-Man.' The last thing you might imagine Raimi directing is a film based on a novel by the author who wrote 'Silver Linings Playbook,' but that's exactly what it seems he's planning to do next. Always keep 'em guessing.

In a surprise move, this year's Screen Gems Comic-Con panel turned most of its attentions and energies to a film without a cast, a director, or a script in place: the long-teased 'The Last of Us' feature film. The film was officially announced back in March, and producer Sam Raimi and video game creator Neil Druckmann (who is now officially on board to write the script for the film) popped up at this afternoon's panel to talk about the feature film as part of Screen Gems' future-leaning panel.
