Opening this weekend is director Gil Kenan’s (Monster House) contemporary remake of the classic horror film Poltergeist. Produced by Sam Raimi, the redo stars Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt as parents trying to fend off a spiritual invasion and save their eight-year-old daughter (Kennedi Clements) from the evil forces trying to take her. The film also stars Jared Harris, Saxon Sharbino, Kyle Catlett, Susan Heyward andNicholas Braun.
The other day I sat down with Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt to talk about the film. They revealed what they liked about the script, memorable moments from filming, if they saw the original and if it scared them, and discussed why are clowns so horrifying. Watch what they had to say below.
