This has been speculation for a long time but basically finally confirmed. Spielberg directed most of poltergeist! 


Quote :
“Hooper was so nice and just happy to be there. He creatively had input. Steven developed the movie, and it was his to direct, except there was anticipation of a director’s strike, so he was “the producer” but really he directed it in case there was going to be a strike and Tobe was cool with that. It wasn’t anything against Tobe. Every once in a while, he would actually leave the set and let Tobe do a few things just because. But really, Steven directed it.”

RIP George A.Romero. It saddens me to think how actually close we may be to losing a lot of these icons. Carpenter, Sean Cunningham, Clive Barker, not to mention our acting icons like Robert England, Kane Hodder, Jaime Lee Curtis, etc. are all into their late 50s, mid-60s, or even older, and while I still see some good, itll never be the same.

It's unfortunate, but we are coming to an end of an era, I feel. The horror genre hasn't been the same since the 80s. These recent years have only solidified it.

I'm replying here so as not to start a discussion in the Passing thread. Problem with horror, a problem sadly since the 80s, is a lack of push for great horror. A couple studios, like Lionsgate and Blumhouse are doing acceptable work, but there's so much low budget schlock, from Asylum knock offs, to unfocused indie projects, to some of the low budget low-effort early year releases like The Bye-Bye Man. There was a lot of bad in the 80s and 90s, but there was a lot of effort, even in the projects basically made to capitalize on the success of other films.

Well the jigsaw trailer has me worried and intrigued at the same time. In case you guys don't know it's both the director and editor(of one of the earlier films) that has said behind closed doors he doesn't like the direction it's going and thinks it's worse than Saw 3D. He has an account on a saw fan site and the studio doesn't know it's him. Which is why I'm not saying WHO. But he has provided unquestionable proof in PM that it's him. 

Anyway I think it has promise but the trailer looked like everything he described. Too fun, too clean looking cinematography wise and ultimately it looks like "more of the same". He pitched a original idea but apparently the studio wanted a more cookie cutter sequel. He's seen the film and doesn't like it much. He wanted something more "cerebral" like the first movie. 

I hope I like it but damn.
