Famous horror flick PET SEMATARY is set to be remade into a modern horror film. It’s rumored that 28 WEEKS LATER director, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo will be sitting in the directors chair for this horror classic.
A family move to a new home near a graveyard that has magical powers and allows creatures that are buried in it to come back from the dead.
Haven’t seen the original? If you’re anything like me and love these crazy horror films with over-the-top story lines that would never happen in real life (but you secretly kind of thought they could), then you’d definitely like this. Sure it’s freaky, odd and creepy, but it’s a great friday night film to share popcorn, squeal and never look at a graveyard the same ever again. As Steven King is responsible for the narrative (it’s an adaptation if you didn’t already know) at least you’ll be assured it’s not another cheesy, laughable Hollywood horror film. Let’s hope the remake stays close to the novel.
The original was made for $11 million and brought in $57 million at the box office which led to a sequel. Lorenzo Di Bonaventura (TRANSFORMERS) and Steven Schneider (PARANORMAL ACTIVITY) are producing the remake, while Matt Greenberg (1408) and David Kajganich (THE INVASION) wrote the screenplay.
