The original 'Poltergeist' was a no-holds-barred scare-fest for children 'and' adults alike, and was deservedly certified a 15 by the BBFC (and this was when the ratings systems were far less lenient than they are these days). However, it's no surprise Ė given the trend of taking adult themed 80s movies, and giving them a more kid-friendly rating Ė that the new 'Poltergeist' reboot is going to be a PG-type kids' film. Star Sam Rockwell spoke with Collider and offered a little more insight into the paranormal reboot of the Steven Spielberg classic:

ďThe 10-year-old boy is really the protagonist this time. JoBeth Williams was the protagonist for the most part in the first one and now the kid, itís really through his point-of-view. So itís more of a kidsí movie. So I donít know if itís gonna be like rated-R scary.Ē

Rockwell elaborated, ďItís not like Conjuring type of scary. Itís a different kind of movie. Itís more of an adventure. Itís essentially a child abduction film when you come down to it. I mean, the original Poltergeist is too.Ē

Filming has wrapped on the reboot of the classic supernatural movie, and the studio are planning to release it on July 24th (bit of a weird release date for a horror movie, ...but if it's marketed as a kids adventure then that's another story...)

Starring alongside Rockwell will be Rosemarie DeWitt, Jared Harris and Nicholas Braun. Gil Kenan took on directing duties.

What do you think of this news? Where you hoping the went down the R-rated route with this one? Let us know peeps.
