The ground has been pretty sour for Jakob, Stuart, and Arnie as they’ve trudged through some pretty rocky Stephen King film adaptations. Have their fortunes improved now that they’ve returned to Pet Sematary? One of the author’s most celebrated novels has found new life in a big budget “elevated horror” remake. Do the hosts hit the breaks on the dramatic plot twist that steers the Creed family down a different road? And will they dig Jason Clarke and Oscar nominee John Lithgow in the iconic roles? Listen Now, and let Now Playing take you to Church!
The Pet Sematary series returned from the grave in 1992. The three years in the ground (or the video stores) did it no favors as the return looked little like the '89 original. Gone was the entire cast, replaced by new star Edward Furlong -- fresh off his success of Terminator 2. Can returning director Mary Lambert reanimate this franchise, or does this sequel smell of rot and death? Dig up this show to find out!
In 1983 King published Pet Sematary - the book he dubbed to scary to print, with a title too difficult to spell. The book was a smash success. Six years later the film adaptation was released. Can it possibly be as frightening as the source novel? Join Stuart, Arnie, and Jakob as they dig up this movie and find out!
