New stills arrive for Poltergeist remake

With just under two months to go until those invisible ghosties invade cinemas, a trio of new stills from the Poltergeist reboot have made their way online.

This rebooted romp follows a similar path to Tobe Hooper’s 1982 original - but with a nastier ghost at its core.

For director Gil Kenan’s take, a normal family home is targeted by a particularly evil spirit that snatches the youngest daughter and holds her prisoner in another realm.

This new batch of pics hone in on the sheer claustrophobia of that tense, eerie situation. As you can see below, the family at the heart of this haunting are in for a bone-chilling experience.

Evil Dead creator-director Sam Raimi produces along with his Dead cohort Bob Tapert, so expect nightmares for months to come...

Poltergeist arrives in cinemas on May 22, 2015. Sam Rockwell, Rosemary DeWitt, Jared Harris and Jane Adams star.
