Torey Michael Adkins,
This riveting documentary follows the entire inception of PET SEMATARY, revealing Stephen King's inspiration to write the book, the struggle to get the film made and the unlikely success of a low budget film from Paramount Pictures during the WGA strike. The documentary features interviews with the Director, Mary Lambert and the entire cast, key crew, town locals as well as never-before-seen footage from the sets in Maine. The film is a detailed look into the making of one of the most enduring cult-horror classics of our generation.
When I first heard about this documentary through Facebook, I remember being really excited about it. The excitement heightened when I met Denise Crosby and Mary Lambert back at Texas Frightmare Weekend in 2012. I remember going up to Denise and asking about this film, and her reaction was so exciting, and she said "Oh, there's a website! You should go check it out!" It only exhilarated my excitement, and I could not wait for this film to come out. It was worth the wait. Unearthed And Untold: The Path To Pet Sematary gives an in depth look at what it was like to shoot the film based off of one of the most mysterious masterpieces of the Stephen King books-Pet Sematary. The cast interviews are so apparent and so appealing that I actually felt like I was on set, and it was amazing to watch. The cast interviews include almost every cast member from the film. It includes the locals of Maine, and it even includes an interview with the lady that built the Pet Sematary (yes, that's how it's spelled) that inspired Stephen King. Furthermore, the film's cast interviews even included the people who did not have big roles, but some of the roles were very apparent for the film. For example, Andrew Hubastek (Zelda) gives an in depth interview about becoming one of the most terrifying characters in a horror film. Furthermore, my jaw dropped when I saw that the filmmakers interviewed the man that was the reason why the line "Sometimes, dead is better" became so apparent-Peter Strater aka "Timmy Baterman." Even though Fred Gwynne could not be interviewed for obvious reasons, the cast really spoke very highly of him, and I felt his presence was so powerful on this documentary. Unearthed And Untold The Path To Pet Sematary is a true element of talent that was created by two talented young men that are obvious fans of Pet Sematary. I would recommend John Campopiano and Justin White for any documentary because they put their hearts into this, and they definitely gave Pet Sematary the justice it deserves.
