  • (intense creepy music)

  • (bone cracking)

  • - We have a second chance.

  • - Sometimes dead is better.

  • (funky surfer music)

  • - We are living in the golden age

  • of Stephen King adaptations.

  • Yeah, there were some beauties in the 80s and 90s,

  • but let's face it, we have reached a point

  • where sensibilities and effects are ready

  • for King's twisted mind like never before

  • and we are reaping the benefits.

  • Which is why it's so exciting to be staring down

  • new adaptations of some of his best work, like Pet Sematary.

  • The story follows the Creed family

  • transplanted from the bustle of Boston to rural Maine

  • where Louis has accepted a position

  • with the university's health service

  • and find themselves living on a road

  • that's been known to use up animals.

  • Forming fast friends with their neighbor Jud Crandall

  • who introduces with to a pet cemetery

  • that lurks in the woods behind their home.

  • When tragedy strikes the Creed family,

  • Jud presents a solution that unleashes an unfathomable evil.

  • Now, most of us are familiar with the story

  • and are following along, but it's at this point

  • the new adaptation takes a major pivot

  • from what we all know.

  • It's in the trailer, so if you've seen that

  • you know what's coming, but I'm gonna say

  • spoiler alert anyway just to be safe.

  • So, yeah, spoiler alert!

  • Okay, are we good, is it safe?

  • All right, here we go.

  • In this version of the story,

  • it's not Gage, the Creed's toddler, who was killed

  • and brought back by the powers of the cemetery,

  • it's their daughter Ellie.

  • This has stirred up a lot of debate and chatter online.

  • Yeah, it's a big departure as far as fans are concerned,

  • but the filmmakers had reasons for their choice.

  • There's stuff in the book that you just can't get

  • out of a three-year-old, both in terms of performance

  • but also as a reaction when you see a kid that small do it.

  • And the big thing is, even though she's older than Gage,

  • Ellie is still a child, and making it the older child

  • works for a number of reasons and also gives the ability

  • to build story and relationships in ways

  • that you just couldn't get out of such a young actor.

  • Having it happen to Ellie allows the character

  • to develop in ways you just can't have happen

  • in a film with Gage, a toddler,

  • which makes the consequences have more weight.

  • And beyond the character development and interactions,

  • it also saves the audiences from seeing

  • an animatronic doll or CGI toddler running around

  • which, let's face it, grounds the story a bit

  • and ramps up the scare factor.

  • All in all, I am firmly rooted in the camp

  • who is on board for this change

  • and think it allows us to get more scares

  • and visceral reactions that King's book carries.

  • This brings us back to being in the golden age of King.

  • The adaptations we got of King's works

  • in the 80s were great, but a lot of them

  • were practically run off an assembly line.

  • Here we're seeing filmmakers adapt the work to their medium

  • and find ways to present the story

  • while still maintaining King's intentions.

  • From what I've seen so far,

  • this new adaptation of Pet Sematary will deliver

  • a frightening film that lives up to the belief

  • that it's some of King's scariest work.

  • You can decide for yourself this week.

  • Pet Sematary is in theaters on April 5th.

  • So what do you think of the big change?

  • What King film do you wanna see readapted?

  • Let us know in the comments and remember,

  • Fright Hype and Crypt TV are all over the internet.

  • Until next time,

  • keep the horror on the screen and off the streets.

  • I'll see you then!
