"Poltergeist", a remake to '80s horror movie, is yet to cast its stars, but it has secured a release date. According to Shock Till You Drop, the remake film will be coming out in theaters during Thanksgiving weekend of 2010 as MGM picked November 24, 2010 as the day the studio will release the new horror film.

The locked date placed "Poltergeist" in competition with Screen Gems' drama musical starring Christina Aguilera, "Burlesque". Though when MGM plans to debut the film in U.S. theaters has been unraveled, no other detail on the possible cast ensemble and on when and where the filmmakers are planning to shoot the remake project is disclosed.

This remake is set to relive the horror of the classic 1982 scary movie from notable filmmaker Steven Spielberg. MGM has signed a pair of "Boogeyman" screenwriters, Juliet Snowden and Stiles White, to make some reworks on the reboot project's script. "House of Sand and Fog" helmer Vadim Perelman is attached to direct.

Considerably one of the most scariest movies ever made, the original "Poltergeist" tells the creepy story of a family home being haunted by a band of ghosts. Though firstly the spirits appear to be friendly, they soon turn evil putting the family in constant fear and eventually kidnap the family's youngest daughter. Directed by Tobe Hooper, it stars Heather O'Rourke and Dominique Dunne among others.

I think it is pathetic that a lot of 80s movies are coming back. Apart from a remake of poltergeist, there is going to be a remake of it, hellraiser and child's play. Pathetic. Just goes to show the lack of imagination in hollyweird.

THIS IS ONE OF THE SCARIEST MOVIES OUT THERE BECAUSE THINGS REALLY HAPPENED ON THAT SET.I DONT THINK THEY SHOULD BE REMAKING IT.THE ACTORS WHO ARE THINKING ABOUT BEING CAST IN IT SHOULD THINK AGAIN.

"Considerably one of the most scariest movies ever made..." Are you kidding me? Who is writing this stuff, a twelve year old? I mean, the news is bad enough. Do you have to make reading it hurt, too?
