To fully appreciate the upcoming reboot of Pet Sematary, this new Featuette sums it up in the first dialogue…
“If you want to make a truly terrifying movie you have to go back to the master of horror himself, Stephen King.”
Ahead of next month’s release,we hear from directors Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kölsch sharing their insights and inspirations.When it comes to retelling a classic horror, so do you go for a straight up remake or twist it?
It seems there is a twist which was revealed a bit in the first trailer. Having a twist whilst respecting the original story might keep this version on a winning road. Jason Clarke, John Lithgow also share their thoughts on the film and what they did to deliver ‘true horror’…
Based on the seminal horror novel by Stephen King, PET SEMATARY follows Dr. Louis Creed (Jason Clarke), who, after relocating with his wife Rachel (Amy Seimetz) and their two young children from Boston to rural Maine, discovers a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near the family’s new home. When tragedy strikes, Louis turns to his unusual neighbor, Jud Crandall (John Lithgow), setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences.
Pet Sematary now has its UK and Irish cinema release date. As expected it’s 4th April 2019, (The U.S release is 5th April).
The film also stars Jason Clarke, Amu Seimetz, John Lithgow, Jeté Laurence, Hugo Lavoie, and Lucas Lavoie.
