The Bragging Texan

A Texan was visiting a Maine farmer ("fahmah"). The Texas rancher was boasting to his host about the size of his ranch: "I can get into my pickup truck and drive all day and still not reach the boundary of my ranch," he bragged. The Mainer shook his head knowingly, and replied, "Aayuhh, I had a truck like that once." Received from Thomas Ellsworth.

‘Pet Sematary’ Directors Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer Share Deleted Scenes and Explain Why They Shot Two Very Different Endings [Exclusive]

The ending of the new Pet Sematary is unapologetically dark – just like the novel of Stephen King’s novel, and the 1989 film adaptation from Mary Lambert. But the ending you now see in theaters wasn’t the original ending that was shot. In a new, exclusive and spoiler-filled interview, Pet Sematary directors Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer broke down some of the details of the Pet Sematary alternate ending. In addition to that, the filmmakers told me about several Pet Sematary deleted scenes tha...

The Eight Cats Who Played Church in ‘Pet Sematary’ Were “A Pack of Divas”

Church the cat is at the center of the the horror maelstrom that is Pet Sematary, the latest Stephen King adaptation to hit theaters. So directors Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kölsch had to make sure that Church had the right look to portray the adorable pet and the undead feline it becomes, apart from all the blood and gore make-up, of course. It turns out it takes more than one cat to play the purr-fect Church — it takes eight. And all eight of them were divas, according to Widmyer. In Mary La...

‘Pet Sematary’ Book vs. Film vs. Film: Comparing Stephen King’s Novel With Its Two Film Adaptations

In 1983, Stephen King released Pet Sematary, a novel so unsettling that even King himself felt he had gone too far. Decades later, it holds up as one of the author’s best, and scariest, books. Hollywood has turned to King’s novel about a cursed burial ground twice now (three times if you want to count a sequel that has nothing to do with King). In 1989, Mary Lambert helmed a spooky, somewhat campy, but still effective adaptation. Now, in 2019, Paramount is set to release a new take on the tale ...

‘Pet Sematary’ Review: Scary As Hell, and One of the Best Stephen King Adaptations Ever [SXSW]

The best Stephen King adaptations do not adhere rigidly to the author’s text but rather remain true to the general spirit of the work. Think The Shining. Think Misery. Think even the 2017 adaptation of It. These works bear a strong resemblance to the words King used, but also forge their own identities, and tell their own stories – while maintaining the atmosphere King created. Pet Sematary, the latest King adaptation, fits in perfectly with these titles.
