News Pet Sematary Remake Apparently “10 Times Scarier” Than the Original Published 3 years ago on March 6, 2016 By Nick Bond Share Tweet What were they thinking making such a strong statement? Saying that a Pet Sematary remake that will be 10 times more scary than the original horror classic is nothing but hype. Well, I personally feel no horror film could be that scary. The Midnight Meat Train writer Jeff Buhler spoke to Dread Central and provided some information on the project. “They are currently out to cast, and they are going for some bigger names, so it’s taking some time,” said Buhler, revealing that the casting process has officially begun. We don’t yet have any way of knowing who the studio is speaking with, but it’s good to hear that they’re looking to go big with the remake. And if casting has begun, pre-production seems to be moving along smoothly.” Jeff Buhler says the Pet Sematary remake will be terrifying. “The characters in this script make some tragic decisions, and the horror is about the ramifications of those decisions,” he told Dread last year. “There are still the supernatural aspects of the book, with the pet cemetery and the burial ground from which things come back from the dead, but the real horror is, ‘What do these things do to the family? What does it do to a person to see their child killed, but then to know that they can bring them back? How do you tussle with that idea? And if and when you make that choice, what does that do to you? Will that child be the same? How can life ever return to normal?’” “This is pretty far from the 1980’s film, which I adore for certain things that are very intrinsic to that time period in terms of the genre, like a truck driver smoking a joint to a Ramones song,” Buhler continued. “But when a little kid comes back with a scalpel and is like, ‘I want to play with you,’ it kind of becomes Chucky. With this one, we really wanted to get into the emotional aspects of it. There’s still plenty of visceral horror that’s explored, but I’ve always felt that if you lean more into the characters and into their emotional lives, when the visceral shit hits the fan, it’s ten times more scary.” Related Topics:Jeff BuhlerPet Sematary Up Next Final Cut Entertainment Releases ‘Vault of Horror’ (UNCUT) UK Blu-Ray Don't Miss ‘Creepshow 2’ Finally Comes to Blu-Ray in the (UK) From 88 Films Continue Reading Advertisement You may like IT Director Andy Muschietti Wants to Adapt Stephen King’s ‘Pet Sematary’ Click to comment Facebook Advertisement Dark Universe Presents https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0T8C3JIJLA&t=22s Twitter Follow @DUHDNews Advertisement Latest Popular Videos News1 hour ago Featurette Tells the Story of Sabrina Spellman in Netflix’s “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” News1 day ago Cavitycolors to Celebrates 40 Years of ‘Halloween’ With Soy Wax Candle and Mystery Enamel Pin Blu-Ray & DVD3 days ago ‘Urban Legend’ and ‘Urban Legends: Final Cut’ Slash onto Blu-Ray via Scream Factory News4 days ago Michael Myers Searches for Dana in New ‘Halloween’ Clip Blu-Ray & DVD5 days ago Colin Eggleston’s Australian Horror ‘Long Weekend’ Getting Special Edition (UK) Blu-Ray Music4 weeks ago Listen to John Carpenter’s Stunning First Track “The Shape Returns” for New ‘Halloween’ News2 weeks ago ‘Halloween’ Writer Danny McBride Has Ideas for Potential Sequel Blu-Ray & DVD3 weeks ago Tom Savini’s 1990 ‘Night of the Living Dead’ Remake is Available Again on U.S. Blu-Ray News1 week ago Rob Zombie Shares New Photo of Sid Haig as Captain Spaulding in ‘Three From Hell’ News2 weeks ago New Video Takes You Behind-the-Scenes of David Gordon Green’s ‘Halloween’ Advertisement Trending Horror Lists3 years ago The Many Different Michael Myers Masks Used In Halloween: H20 News1 year ago Todd McFarlane Makes An Announcement on His ‘Spawn’ Script News1 year ago Photo of Doug Bradley Back in Pinhead Makeup for First Time in 12 Years!
