Fresnadillo To Helm "Pet Semetery" Remake

31 October 2013 12:58 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Carrie" isn't the only Stephen King novel getting a second big screen adaptation it would seem.

Filmmaker Juan Carlos Fresnadillo ("28 Weeks Later," "Intruders") is returning to the horror genre as he is set to direct the remake of "Pet Sematary" at Paramount Pictures.

The original 1983 novel follows a family who move to a small Maine town along a highway often used by high-speed trucks. Nearby lies a pet cemetery and further beyond that an ancient indian burial ground which can resurrect the dead, but those who come back aren't quite right.

When their toddler son is killed in an auto accident, the grieving father uses that power - but at the cost of several lives and his own sanity. The book was previously adapted into a quite successful film in 1989 starring Dale Midkiff, Denise Crosby and Fred Gwynne.

Matt Greenberg and David Kajganich wrote the script while Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Steven Schneider are producing. »

Pet Sematary Revived with Director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo

31 October 2013 12:22 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The long-gestating Pet Sematary remake has come back to life, with director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo in talks to direct.

The project was first announced back in 2004, when Mike Werb and Michael Colleary (Face / Off) were attached to write the script. It never got off the ground, resurfacing again in 2011 with a new script from Matt Greenberg. The latest version of the screenplay was co-written by Matt Greenberg and David Kajganich. No story details were released.

The original 1989 horror classic, based on Stephen King's novel, follows a family who moves in next to a cemetery, which they discover has amazing and sinister powers. Dale Midkiff, Fred Gwynne and Denise Crosby starred in the thriller, which earned $57 million from an $11 million budget. The thriller spawned the 1992 sequel Pet Sematary II, which starred Edward Furlong and Anthony Edwards.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Steven Schneider are producing the remake. No production schedule was given. »

Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, best known for helming 28 Weeks Later, is now taking the reins on the film. The original 1989 version of Pet Sematary was directed by Mary Harron and starred Dale Midkiff and Denise Crosby. Telling the story of a »

Five Most Frightening Screen Adaptations Of Stephen King

25 October 2013 8:06 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Clowns, prom, pets, and family getaways have two things in common: we’re supposed to feel safe about them and, because of Stephen King, we don’t. Considered to be the master of modern horror, King takes our expectations of what it means to be safe and secure, and flips it on its head. So sit back and relax as Sound on Sight explores the five most frightening screen adaptations of Stephen King for the 31 Days of Horror.

5- It (1990)

Childhood for many of us consists of days spent outdoors under the sun, playing make-believe, and an innocence that can never be recaptured. It’s a time in our lives when we trust those around us, believe the white lies we’re told by our parents, and find comfort in friendship, not deal with child-eating clowns that live in the sewer beneath our feet.

Which is why the television miniseries »

Dale Midkiff and Josh Ruben Doppelgangers?

4 October 2013 8:30 PM, PDT | Horrorbid | See recent Horrorbid news »

Well this Bidite decided it was finally time to sink my teeth into Pet Sematary, watching it for the first time today! Shocking I know! I thoroughly enjoyed the film, however I could not get past the fact that Dale Midkiff, the main character, looks dead on like Josh Ruben, from CollegeHumor! Yes, Midkiff has aged since filming Pet Sematary, but at the time of filming it, you would almost think that Ruben and Midkiff are Doppelgangers! But do not… »
