As a child of the 1980s, one of the most terrifying, yet compelling movies that I ever laid my eyes upon was POLTERGEIST. In fact, I’m not even sure why I was allowed to watch it, but I did – repeatedly, over and over and over again. Recently reimagined to scare a new generation, Director Gil Kenan (MONSTER HOUSE) brought POLTERGEIST back, and it’s now available as an Extended Cut from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment – available now on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. The film lands here in my annual 31 Days of Halloween as a #ForGrownups Giveaway, where one lucky reader of THE ROCK FATHER Magazine will bring the POLTERGEIST into their home on Blu-ray Combo Pack!
About 2015’s POLTERGEIST: Fox 2000 Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures present POLTERGEIST, from legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (“Spider-Man,” Evil Dead,” “The Grudge”) and director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”). It contemporizes the 1982 classic about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. When terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever.

Kenan directs from a screenplay by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer David Lindsay-Abaire. The film is produced by Raimi and Rob Tapert, p.g.a. (“Evil Dead”) via Ghost House Pictures, along with Roy Lee, p.g.a. (“The Departed”). The film is executive produced by J.R. Young (“The Grudge 3”), Audrey Chon (“Changeling”), John Powers Middleton (“The LEGO® Movie”), and Becki Cross Trujillo (“Snitch”).
POLTERGEIST stars Sam Rockwell (“Moon”), Rosemarie DeWitt (“Rachel Getting Married”), Jared Harris (“Mad Men”) and Jane Adams (“Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”).
With suspenseful storytelling and jaw-dropping visuals, this electrifying take on a spine-chilling classic will haunt you from its early nightmarish moments to its exhilarating climax!
