As reported by Bloody Disgusting, Caperton explains that on Saturday, September 19, they will be holding a very special screening of the original Pet Sematary at the actual filming location in Ellsworth, Maine. He said, "We will be watching the film outside, exactly where the infamous Pet Sematary sign and graveyard once stood. Maine is such a beautiful state – make a weekend trip out of it and visit Acadia National Park only 20 minutes away or check out Stephen King’s house in Bangor only 40 minutes north."
He added, "We encourage everyone to stay all night at The Colonial Inn, which is located directly by the event location – ticket holders will be emailed a 15% off discount code for September 19th! And we don’t recommend bringing your dead animals – losing a pet can be devastating, but just remember …sometimes, dead is better." Event and ticket details can be found on their website. Pet Sematary is based on the novel by Stephen King of the same name and follows the story of the Creed family. After Louis Creed moves in with his family into the country house of their dreams, they discover a pet cemetery nearby named "Pet Sematary". The ground is said to be cursed and has the power to bring the dead back to life.
But, as expected, the dead do come back to life but in the most unexpected manner. The official synopsis of the movie reads, "Dr. Louis Creed and his wife, Rachel, relocate from Boston to rural Maine with their two young children. The couple soon discovers a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near their new home. When tragedy strikes, Louis turns to his neighbor Jud Crandall, setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unspeakable evil with horrific consequences."
The original movie was made in 1989 and was directed by Mary Lambert. The movie was made on a budget of $11.5 million and earned $57.5 million. Upon its release, the movie gained mixed reviews from both audiences and critics. But over time, the movie earned a cult status among the fans of horror and the second remake of Pet Sematary was released in 2019. The 2019 movie was directed by Kevin Kölscha and Dennis Widmyer and it was produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Mark Vahradian, and Steven Schneider. The movie was theatrically released on April 5, 2019, by Paramount Pictures and it grossed more than $113 million worldwide on a budget of $21 million.
