New HuffPost Blog – “Horror for Kids” and the Poltergeist Remake

Posted: January 30, 2015 in Industry, Movies We Love, Uncategorized

I got thinking about horror aimed at kids over the last week or so, partly due to a discussion I was having of Facebook regarding the original rating of Poltergeist. It prompted me to write this article for Huffington Post, which recycles a paragraph from a blog post I wrote for this site a couple of years back but is otherwise new stuff.

The first draft of the blog post also had a bit about Joe Dante’s The Hole, which is another fascinating kid-orientated horror; very much a descendent of The Gate which, shit, I really would have written about too if I’d thought of it.

Basically, the piece would have ended up book length given half a chance. Go check it out.
