new pet sematary movie

Back in February, word broke that a Pet Sematary prequel would be headed to Paramount+. Now, things may have changed. There’s still a new Pet Sematary movie on the way, and that film now has a director – Lindsey Beer, who is making her directorial debut with the project and also working on the screenplay. But now it’s being reported that the new film may not be a prequel after all. However this turns out, the new Pet Sematary movie is drawing influence from Stephen King’s terrifying 1983 novel about a burial ground that has the power to raise the dead.

The upcoming Paranormal Activity movie is headed right to Paramount+ – and it has company. A new Pet Sematary film, which will serve as a prequel to the 2019 adaptation of Stephen King’s horror classic, is headed to the nascent streaming service as well. The news comes as part of Paramount’s plan to overhaul their release strategy as the theatrical experience is called more into question as streaming becomes dominant.

Best Movies Streaming Right Now Fugitive

(Welcome to Now Stream This, a column dedicated to the best movies streaming on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and every other streaming service out there.)

Well, here we are. In the midst of a pandemic that requires nearly all of us to stay the hell indoors. The silver lining: More time to sit around and stream movies. Which means it’s my time to shine! I felt a little extra pressure this week, since I know many people are craving new entertainment to watch at the moment. So I tried to compile a list of highly watchable movies – not just good movies, but movies that suck you in and take your mind off of, well, everything (with one or two outliers). So hang in there, everyone. We’ll get through this.

Scariest Children in Horror Movies

You don’t have to be a childless millennial at Disney World to be afraid of kids. There’s a whole time-honored sub-genre of horror that plays upon pedophobia, the fear of children. It’s yielded ghost girls aplenty and more than one son of Satan.

Writer-directors Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala ventured into pedophobic territory with their 2014 Austrian film, Goodnight Mommy. It’s been a long road to the release of their new feature, The Lodge, which premiered at Sundance last year and earned some rave reviews, only to see its release date pushed back until after this year’s festival. Now, the wait is finally over and The Lodge is almost here. It hits theaters on Friday and this film has some elements that will poke at the child-fearing part of the brain.

In honor of that, we’re diving back through the last 60 years of film history, taking a reverse-chronological look at the 10 scariest movie children. Of course, there are any number of horror films where precocious youngsters say or do things that contribute to the overall creepy atmosphere. (“I see dead people,” “They’re heeere,” etc.) However, with this list, we’ll be focusing mainly on the kids who are straight-up evil or possessed and whose desire to harm others plays an integral role in the plot. You’re about to wade into a playroom where the tykes are all finger-painting with the blood of adults.

pet sematary alternate ending watch

Here’s a little extra creepiness for your weekend. Part of the Pet Sematary alternate ending is now available to watch online, and it’s disturbing to say the least. While I enjoyed the ending that made it to theaters, I can’t help but wish the film had stuck with this dark conclusion instead. To be fair, the theatrical cut’s ending is plenty dark – but in an almost playful way. This version is far more unsettling. Watch the Pet Sematary alternate ending below. And beware of spoilers.
