Image of the Day: Creepy new Poltergeist movie poster reveals they know what scares us

They’re baacck … and so is that creepy clown toy from the original Poltergeist movie. Or ,at least, producer Sam Raimi (Evil Dead) and director Gil Kenan’s very own version of the toy that scared the bejeezus out of me for years, ever since I saw Tobe Hooper’s classic horror movie about a family under attack from evil spirits back in 1982.

One thing for sure, Raimi and Kenan really know what scares a lot of us. Have a look at the new UK poster, unless you're a coulrophobe, in which case you may wish to avert your eyes:

Starring Sam Rockwell, Rosemary DeWitt, Jared Harris and Jane Adams, Poltergeist will open in theaters on May 22, 2015.
