Some early images from the forthcoming Poltergeist reboot

In 1982's Poltergeist, young Carol Anne Freelingcarved out a place for herself in horror history when she eerily announced the arrival of malevolent spirits, saying, "They're here."



Well, they are back.



Poltergeist has been rebooted with a new cast and a contemporary setting more than 30 years after the original made the suburbs feel unsafe. Director Gil Kenan (Monster House) was rocked by the original film and vows to get the contemporary version right when it hits theaters in 3-D on July 24, with a first trailer appearing Thursday.



"Whenever someone approaches material that's so beloved, there's a reflexive reaction to be worried," says Kenan. "It's a responsibility we take very seriously. We're working to make a Poltergeist film that lives up to the original's legacy."
