2019 Pet Sematary blu-ray banner

Pet Sematary (2019)
Blu-ray Combo Pack | 4K Ultra HD | DVD | Digital
Directors: Kevin Kölsch, Dennis Widmyer
Screenwriter: Jeff Buhler
Cast: Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz, John Lithgow, Jeté Laurence
Distributor: Paramount Home Video
Release Date: July 9, 2019

In this year’s Pet Sematary, the filmmakers have created a new adaptation of Stephen King‘s best-selling supernatural horror novel of the same name and, once again, the point that “sometimes dead is better” is driven home.

As with King’s book and the 1989 feature he adapted for director by Mary Lambert, the story centers on Dr. Louis Creed, who moves his family from a big city to small town. Hoping his new home in the woods will give his family a more peaceful existence, their lives become anything but after he discovers a mysterious burial ground on his new property.

Pet Sematary
Based on the novel by Stephen King
Screen Story written by Mark Greenberg
Screenplay by Jeff Buhler
Directed by Kevin Kolsch & Dennis Widmyer
Starring Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz, John Lithgow, Jeté Laurence
Di Bonaventura Pictures | Paramount Pictures
101 minutes | Rated R
Release date: April 5, 2019

Nostalgia is a powerful drug. I saw Mary Lambert’s 1989 big-screen interpretation of Stephen King’s novel Pet Sematary as a child and it was one of the first films to truly horrify me. I will forever be haunted by the ghastly performance of Andrew Hubatsek as the spinal meningitis-stricten Zelda. And the achilles tendon scene made me wear high-top sneakers throughout middle school. Having recently rewatched it as an adult, it’s a very flawed film. The 2019 remake/reimagining directed by Kevin Kolsch & Dennis Widmyer (Starry Eyes) is a much better overall film, although one that will likely not leave the lasting impression of the original.

New ‘Pet Sematary’ TV Spot Teases Return Of Zelda

Pet Sematary (2019)

Paramount has released a new TV spot for Pet Sematary, the latest adaptation of Stephen King‘s novel of the same name.

The TV spot is extremely short at only 15 seconds, but it teases a character who will no doubt be of interest to fans of King’s book and the 1989 movie adaptation which stole sleep from so many: Zelda. The name alone causes me to start sweating nervously. I’ve never even played any of the video games because of it. OK so that’s all a bit of exaggeration, but that ’89 movie helped along greatly by Zelda did something very few movies have ever been able to do: terrify the ever-loving shit out of me.

You can check out the TV spot below.

Pet Sematary

Another new Stephen King adaptation is heating up with Pet Sematary, which recently began casting.

First came word that Jason Clarke had been cast in the role of Louis Creed, the father character played in the 1989 movie by Dale Midkiff. Then came word that the great John Lithgow will be playing Jud Crandall, who was played by the late great Fred Gwynne in the previous adaptation.

Now one of the writers of this new take on Pet Sematary, Jeff Buhler (The Midnight Meat Train), has shared some thoughts on the project. You can see what he had to say about it below.

Pet Sematary

Back in 2010 the writer behind 1408 was hired to work on a remake of Pet Sematary. Obviously that didn’t work out.

Now, after another adaptation of a Stephen King story in IT had great success at the box office, Paramount wants to keep things rolling with another crack at Pet Sematary. To make this happen for them, the studio has hired Starry Eyes directors Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer to make the movie.

Scream
Season 2 Episode 10 “The Vanishing”
Directed by Kevin Kolsch & Dennis Widmyer
Written by Eoghan O’Donnell
Created by Jill E. Blotevogel, Jay Beattie, Dan Dworkin
Starring Willa Fitzgerald, Bex Taylor-Klaus, John Karna, Amadeus Serafini, Carlson Young, Tracy Middendorf, Kiana Lede, Austin Highsmith, Billy Campo, Sean Grandillo, Santiago Segura, Anthony Ruivivar
MTV
Air date: Tuesday, August 2nd, 2016, 10pm

MTV’s Scream season 2 is limping towards the finish line. Of the Lakewood 6, only Jake (Tom Maden) was killed through the first 9 episodes, and he died in the premiere. Only a handful of minor characters have been killed off after that, and I am actually clueless to what is going on. It took until episode 9 to get some backstory that Ms. Lang (Austin Highsmith) was orphan buddies with Piper Shaw (Amelia Rose Blaire), season 1’s killer, and the half sister of heroine Emma (Willa Fitzgerald). Emma and Audrey (Bex Taylor-Klaus) found this out when a party at the old orphanage left Piper’s corpse set up for them, and a fresh body was hanging from the rafters. Noah (John Karna) and Zoe (Kiana Lede) sealed the deal, which may seal their deal if you know what I mean, while Brooke (Carson Young) is getting closer to troubled suspect Gustavo (Santiago Segura). That should have us caught up…

Spoilers below for this week’s Scream.
