    Pet Sematary (2019)

    Release date: April 19, 2019
    Studio: Paramount Pictures
    Directors: Kevin Kolsch, Dennis Widmyer
    MPAA Rating: N/A
    Screenwriters: Jeff Buhler, David Kajganich
    Starring: Jason Clarke, John Lithgow
    Genre: Horror

    Plot Summary: An updated version of Stephen King's "Pet Sematary." The following is how the 1983 book is described:

    "The road in front of Dr. Louis Creed's rural Maine home frequently claims the lives of neighborhood pets. Louis has recently moved from Chicago to Ludlow with his wife Rachel, their children and pet cat. Near their house, local children have created a cemetery for the dogs and cats killed by the steady stream of transports on the busy highway. Deeper in the woods lies another graveyard, an ancient Indian burial ground whose sinister properties Louis discovers when the family cat is killed."

    Paramount brought the book to life in 1989 with a feature version adapted by King that starred Dale Midkiff, Denise Crosby and Fred Gwynne.

    Production Begins on Pet Sematary Remake

    Co-director Dennis Widmyer announced on Twitter today that production has just begun on Paramount Pictures’ adaptation of Pet Sematary. In the tweet, Widmyer and co-director Kevin Kolsch are holding a slate for the film. You can check the tweet out below!

    Pet Sematary will be headlined by Jason Clarke (Winchester, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), who will be taking the lead role of Dr. Louis Creed. John Lithgow joins him as Jud, an older neighbor of Dr. Creed who introduces him to the area’s many secrets and mysteries.

    Paramount Pictures‘ adaptation will be directed by Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch (Starry Eyes) and is written by Jeff Buhler, the showrunner for Syfy’s upcoming horror science fiction series, Nightflyers, based on the George R.R. Martin novella. Lorenzo di Bonaventura (1408, Transformers) is producing along with Mark Vahradian and Steven Schneider (Insidious).

    The film is an updated version of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary. The following is how the 1983 book is described: The road in front of Dr. Louis Creed’s rural Maine home frequently claims the lives of neighborhood pets. Louis has recently moved from Chicago to Ludlow with his wife Rachel, their children and pet cat. Near their house, local children have created a cemetery for the dogs and cats killed by the steady stream of transports on the busy highway. Deeper in the woods lies another graveyard, an ancient Indian burial ground whose sinister properties Louis discovers when the family cat is killed.

    Pet Sematary is slated for release on April 19, 2019.
    Here we go, this thing has been on hold for years.

    Now I've never read the Book or any Bool from Stephen King, but is the Kid Cult thing apart of the Book that was kept outta the original? That was pretty creepy to hear the drumming and the kids going to the Sematary as if they are going to Church. I wonder if they know the Truck Scene and make it brutal as it can be if it's Rated R, if not well get some something like we got in the original without the Vader nooo at the end.

    The trailer looked decent enough, don't think anything can beat the original for me.

    There wasn't any cult parts in the book and it is an interesting addition (as really the whole idea of the "Sematary" is pretty cult like). This is my favourite King book and I love the movie (despite the corniness) but I enjoyed that trailer. I'm definitely interested.

    Re: Pet Sematary (2019)

    Seeing as this is a remake I suppose there's no point in complaining about them giving away the entire plot in the trailer. It still seems kind of silly to do that but I guess it's kind of whatever at this point where trailers are concerned. I think I should just stop watching them entirely.

    So with that being said, I like Clarke well enough and Lithgow is GOAT tier so they alone could carry this to something solid. Unfortunately it all looks pretty generic where the scares are concerned but, again, the acting could save it.

    Well we got a twist in the story I like that all things considered. John Connor never had to deal with this in his future

    Re: Pet Sematary (2019)

    Looks like they have made some interesting changes to the original, like changing which child is the main character but willing to wait and see.

    Agree with Fuji about the scares but I also find it strange how much Patrick Clarke reminds me of Dale Midkiff so...that's awesome! Lithgow will kill this role no doubt, like he does everything

    Be interested to watch this.

    King is a local hero around my parts, and many of us in the area know his family pretty well. My mom went to college with his brother's wife.

    Fun little thing to see for King fans and Sematary ones...This is about 4 hours from me.

    Re: Pet Sematary (2019)

    I actually think this is starting to look like it's going to be pretty bad, yet I'll be compelled to go see it anyways as I'm a fan of the story. As long as Lithgow is good I'm sure I'll enjoy it regardless of any shortcomings it may have. Still feel like they essentially give away the entire movie in the trailer but I'm pretty much over it.

    I kinda want to see this movie since I grew up loving the original. But I end up not liking the vast majority of remakes of any films over the years.

    Re: Pet Sematary (2019)

    I saw this and sadly it just wasn't great. Honestly it seemed like they gave away too much in the trailers as you was ready for the big scares. The performances were solid but not a great film sadly.
