We’re now only a few days away from the arrival of Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer’s new adaptation of Stephen King’s classic novel Pet Sematary, and to get you ready for all the macabre mayhem to come, we have a video interview with the directing duo on tap today.
While at the recent press day, Daily Dead chatted with both filmmakers about the decision to make some pretty bold changes to King’s overall story, and how satisfying it was to get his blessing on those changes. Widmyer and Kölsch also discussed the parallels between Pet Sematary (2019) and Starry Eyes, their creepy feline co-star in the film, and more.
Look for Pet Sematary in theaters beginning this Thursday night.
SPOILER WARNING: If you haven’t seen any of the Pet Sematary (2019) trailers and are unaware of the major change to this iteration of King’s story, then the following interview might be a bit spoilery.
