Poltergeist Remake Gets an Extended Cut on Blu-ray
The Poltergeist remake started in US cinemas on May 22nd and received the mass-appealing PG-13 rating just like its predecessor did many years ago. Naturally, that restricts how much violence and blood can be shown but maybe that's not such an essential element in a ghost movie that floats on shock and suspense most of all.
And still there's more to come after the theatrical run is finished. Director Gil Kenan revealed in an interview with Collider that the upcoming Blu-ray will feature an Extended Cut that adds 7-8 more minutes to the film. He's basically satisfied with the theatrical version and said that the material that's about to be put back in was initially removed due to pacing. A lot of it will most likely concentrate on the introduction of the family. Whether censorship was also an issue has to be seen once the home video releases see the light of day.
