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.

The movie is directed by Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer (Starry Eyes), and stars Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz, John Lithgow, Jeté Laurence, and Hugo Lavoie. Jeff Buhler (The Prodigy, Nightflyers) and David Kajganich (Suspiria, The Terror) wrote the screenplay.

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.

The film centers on the sexual harassment cover-up that went on inside the right-winged new organization and how exiting anchors like Megyn Kelly (Charlize Theron) and Gretchen Carlson (Nicole Kidman) changed the culture of sexual harassment for the better. More on the report 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.

Movie Review: Pitch Perfect 3

Pitch Perfect 3

Pitch Perfect 3
Director: Trish Sie
Screenwriter: Kay Cannon
Cast: Anna Kendrick, Anna Camp, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, Hailee Steinfeld, Hana Mae Lee, Ester Dean, Alexis Knapp, Chrissie Fit, Kelley Jakle, Shelley Regner, Elizabeth Banks, John Michael Higgins
Distributor: Universal Studios
Rated PG-13| 93 Minutes
Release Date: December 22, 2017

Although the Pitch Perfect films have never been strong on narratives or plots, their strength lies in the rapturous a cappella beats of top 40 cover songs and themes of friendship. That has been their constant, and it remains true in Pitch Perfect 3, where there is a razor-thin plot and a list of nonsensical things that don’t even belong in the film in the first place.

However, in its meta sense of humor and cheesiness, along with some rather fun a cappella music and those themes of friendship, Pitch Perfect 3 isn’t a forgettable jazzy blur but semi-entertaining sing-a-long that doesn’t quite remember where it came from. My full review below.

Pitch Perfect 3

It’s hard to deny the absolute charm of Pitch Perfect, and because the first film was so successful, we got a trilogy. Though the second one was a somewhat flawed installment, it still had that hilarious chemistry between the cast. But the upcoming third promises to be the end of the Bellas, at least the ones that started this cinematic a cappella journey.

A new trailer for Pitch Perfect 3 just hit the web, and it reminds us of why this musical ensemble is not only hilarious, but also musically infectious. Check out the latest trailer for Pitch Perfect 3 here below.

Netflix's The Crown

Back in January we saw a pair of sizzle reels for a couple of Netflix’s upcoming original titles, The Crown and The Get Down…which would also work as a single title people would be curious to learn more about.

The Get Down has already been released, but The Crown still has a little over a month before its arrival. Until then, Netflix has released a new trailer for the series, which follows the reign of Queen Elizabeth II beginning in 1947.

Continue below to watch the new trailer.
