Pet Sematary Remake, Starring Jason Clarke and Amy Seimetz, Gets Trailer

Mary Lambert’s Pet Sematary, which was released the same year as the filmmaker made Madonna’s iconic “Like a Prayer” video, hasn’t aged as well as other Stephen King adaptations from the era. As such, it will come as a surprise to no one that a remake is on the horizon. Directed by Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer from a screenplay by David Kajganich and Jeff Buhler, the new Pet Sematary follows a doctor, Louis Creed (Jason Clarke), and his wife, Rachel (Amy Seimetz), who stumble upon a mysterious burial ground near their family’s new home in rural Maine. Tragedy naturally strikes, forcing Louis to turn to an unusual neighbor (played by the reliably unusual John Lithgow) and in the process unleashing an unfathomable evil that will no doubt have hyperbolic consequences.

Watch the Trailer for Martin Scorsese’s 28-Years-in-the-Making Epic Silence

“I pray but I’m lost, am I just praying to silence?” Said words are being used by Paramount to promote the release of Martin Scorsese’s Silence, but they could just as easily apply to the filmmaker’s drive to get the film made. A two-decades-in-the-making passion project for the auteur, the film is the second adaptation of the Shūsaku Endō novel of the same name, previously adapted in 1971 by Masahiro Shinoda. It relates the story of two Christian missionaries (Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver) who venture to Japan, in the ultimate test of faith, to search of their missing mentor (Liam Neeson), at a time when Christianity was outlawed and their presence forbidden.

The idea for this ongoing podcast series was hatched after Vadim, myself, and House Next Door co-editor Keith Uhlich (this installment’s special guest commentator) met at a screening of There Will Be Blood. Fitting then that we discuss that very film during our first episode, in addition to the Paramount-sponsored podcast on No Country for Old Men featuring our colleagues Glenn Kenny, Harry Knowles, Jen Yamoto, Jim Emerson, and Elvis Mitchell. How meta! Other topics include the Opera Jawa non-controversy spurned by Jonathan Rosenbaum, Cloverfield, and a minor argument about what the heck we even call the show.

To be clear, this is John Lichman and Vadim Rizov, “Live” at Grassroots Tavern. And if you ever see me or Vadim there, please buy us drinks. JL
