Ahead of it’s World Premiere at the SXSW Film Festival this Saturday, Paramount Pictures has released a new featurette for PET SEMATARY where we see the cast discuss what most consider to be Stephen King’s most terrifying novel.
As Dennis Widmyer, co-director of PET SEMATARY says, “If you want to make a truly terrifying movie you have to go back to the master of horror himself, Stephen King.”
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.
Directed by Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer, PET SEMATARY arrives in theaters on April 5, 2019.
