It's possible that Poltergeist will serve as the new standard when people talk about remakes that we most definitely did not need. The original film doesn't exactly hold up the greatest nowadays, but it's conservatively 100 times better than the remake, which is filled with telegraphed jump startles, annoying characters, horrible CGI, and not a moment when you'll feel either scared, excited, or entertained. Insidious was a better Poltergeist remake than Poltergeist.
