New Film Adaptation of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary Slated for April 19th, 2019 Release

  • DailyDead
Readers first learned that "sometimes dead is better" when Stephen King's Pet Sematary was published in 1983, and they'll soon learn that morbid lesson again with Paramount Pictures' new adaptation of the heart-wrenching horror novel, which has received a 2019 theatrical release date.

Multiple sources, including Variety, report that the new Pet Sematary movie is slated for an April 19th, 2019 theatrical release from Paramount.

Variety previously revealed that Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer, the filmmakers behind 2014's Starry Eyes, have been set by Paramount to direct a new take on King's classic 1983 novel about life, death, and the boundary between the two that should never be broken.

Kolsch and Widmyer, who have also directed several key episodes of MTV's Scream TV series, will work from a screenplay by David Kajganich (writer of the upcoming Suspiria remake and 2007's The Invasion) and Matt Greenberg, who has writing credits on other King adaptations such as 1408 and Mercy.

Desert Hearts

By 1985 Hollywood had still only dabbled in movies about the ‘shame that cannot speak its name,’ and in every case the verdict for the transgressors was regret and misery, if not death. Donna Deitch’s brilliant drama achieves exactly what she wanted, to do make a movie about a lesbian relationship that doesn’t end in a tragedy.

Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer to Direct New Adaptation of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary

  • DailyDead
Readers first learned that "sometimes dead is better" when Stephen King's Pet Sematary was published in 1983. The nightmare-inducing novel (perhaps King's most disturbing book and certainly one of the most haunting things I will ever experience) was first translated to the big screen by Mary Lambert in 1989, and now another rendition of King's living dead tale is in development with two directors at the helm.

Variety reports that Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer, the filmmakers behind 2014's Starry Eyes, have been set by Paramount Pictures to direct a new take on King's classic 1983 novel about life, death, and the boundary between the two that should never be broken.

Blu-ray Review – Miracle Mile (1988)

Miracle Mile, 1988.

Directed by Steve De Jarnatt.

Starring Anthony Edwards, Mare Winningham, Denise Crosby, John Agar, Lou Hancock, Mykelti Williamson, and Kurt Fuller.

Synopsis:

After answering a pay phone at four in the morning and hearing a message warning of all-out nuclear war, a young man must find his new love and try and survive the upcoming Armageddon.

Creating a rare form of genre shifting, high-concept fantasy, Miracle Mile is a memorable blend of anxiety dream, satirical humour and romantic adventure. First written in 1983, writer/director De Jarnatt bought back the rights to his compelling script and took on the project himself five years later. The decision proved to be a excellent one, and today the film stands up extremely well.

Harry (Anthony Edwards, ER, Top Gun) is a young visitor to La who happens to meet the love of his life Julie (Mare Winningham, St Elmo’s Fire) at a local museum.

Crowdfund This: Itsy Bitsy Mixes Practical FX and Charatcter Actors in a Return to 80s Genre

From the look of the trailer, Itsy Bitsy is a return to solid character acting (Denise Crosby! Bruce Davison!) and practical creature special effects with its animatronic spiders. Director Micah Gallo has put together a pretty slick-looking genre film outside of the Hollywood system, and he's close to finishing his film Itsy Bitsy, but he needs help. He's almost there --- just shy of $5,000 to reach his goal in the next few days. Of course, you can score the usual signed blu-rays and DVDs, but you if you have a bit more cash to spare, you can also get props, credits, a sweet poster signed by genre film illustrator Matthew Joseph Peak (A Nightmare on Elm Street), and tickets to the film's Los Angeles premiere and after...

October Horrors 2017 Day 5 – Pet Sematary (1989)

Pet Sematary, 1989.

Directed by Mary Lambert.

Starring Dale Midkiff, Denise Crosby, Blaze Berdahl, Miko Hughes, and Fred Gwynne.

Synopsis:

Upon moving to a new town, Louis Creed is introduced to the mysterious “Pet Sematary” that hides an ancient Native American burial ground behind it. A burial ground that allegedly possesses the power to resurrect the dead. Despite being warned not to, Louis finds himself drawn to use the power of the burial ground when tragedy strikes the family, unaware of the horrors that will be released.

Stephen King needs no introduction. With over 50 novels, countless short stories and compilations to his name, the legendary horror scribe has been the source of many a nightmare and a soiled pair of underpants.

And with 2017 seeing something of a resurgence in the popularity of King’s work on both the big and small screen, I felt it only appropriate that with this year

‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’: Ranking the Crew, From Picard to Pulaski

‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’: Ranking the Crew, From Picard to Pulaski
Thirty years ago, “Star Trek” proved it wasn’t just a story about Kirk and Spock; it was a story universe rich with possibilities, including a whole new cast of characters.

Ranking the men and women of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” is a far more brutal task than initially anticipated because, as the series kept telling us the whole time, this wasn’t a crew. This was a family. That said, let’s be honest. Family might inspire love on an equal playing field, but when it comes to actually spending time with people, favorites do emerge.

This is strictly limited to those who served as actual crew members (sorry, Q and Lwaxana Troi) because one of the best things about “Trek’s” approach to a military structure is how it still allows the show to celebrate individual personalities. Because as much fun as space travel is, a “Trek

Interview: Filmmaker Micah Gallo on the Characters & Kickstarter Campaign for the Spider-Centric Thriller Itsy Bitsy

  • DailyDead
If you have arachnophobia, you might need to take a deep pull from an inhaler after watching the trailer for Itsy Bitsy, an upcoming horror film in which a single mother and her children are stalked by a spider that's large enough to haunt your dreams for life, but still compact enough to fit in your bathtub or under your bed... As impressive as the trailer for Itsy Bitsy is, the film still needs help from horror fans to make it across the cinematic finish line in post-production, and director Micah Gallo has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help bring his creature feature to the big screen.

I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Gallo about his new character-centric thriller, and he discussed teaming up with Daily Dead contributor Jason Alvino and Bryan Dick to write the screenplay, filming the movie in sections, depicting the spider through painstaking practical effects,

The film: Louis Creed (Dale Midkiff) takes a job as a doctor at the University of Maine, moving into a new home with his wife Rachel (Denise Crosby) and their two young children, Ellie (Blaze Berdahl) and Gage (Miko Hughes). Their neighbour Jud (Fred Gwynne) takes a shine to the family and Louis in particular.

Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary is a documentary on the 1989, Mary Lambert produced film. Developed over five years, the documentary shows dedication and careful editing. Mostly told through interviews with cast and crew, this documentary offers a lot of behind-the-scenes trivia. It also delivers a cohesive breakdown on how the original film was developed. From set location scouting to character motivations, almost everything (in production) is covered. There is one thing missing though; there is no actual footage of the film, which is owned by Paramount Pictures. Still, did you know there were multiple endings shot for the film? This viewer did not, nor how Stephen King based.
