I have some incredibly fond memories of Poltergeist 1 and 2. The original made people afraid to leave a station on the static channel. even creeped my friends and I out to no end but we still tried listening for a voice on those static channels.

I say bring it on and where possible, toss in some of the original cast members...sadly Carol-Ann won't be able to make one but the little girl's legacy lives on.

Very cool. I like sequels. Reboots get too excited about rewriting everything.
