So it really started with Carrie a couple of years back and then IT. To me they were how they should have originally portrayed the books in the movies. Now Pet Sematary, which is one fucking scary book, is coming out later this year.
The trailer was creepy as hell so it looks like we are in for a good movie
I also was not terribly impressed by the It remake, but I was very glad they got rid of the “bonding” scene that took place after the kids banished Pennywise — what the hell was Mr. King thinking when he wrote that?
Pet Cemetery does look interesting though, I agree.
EDIT: I mean “Semetery” obviously, strange spelling that.
yeah stephen king can be a bit pedophilic in his story telling and truly fucked up, Mr Mercedes is about some computer nerd who goes on a killing spree in a mercedes and mows down a number people looking for work at a faire, the protagonist is molested by his mother. Fucked up but because Stephen knows how to spin a good story we enjoy it.
Because the kids that marked the old Indian ceremonial ground where they could take their dead pets misspelled the sign. Don’t remember if that was explained in the original movie; part of the folklore in the book.
Movie looks good. Be tough to improve on The Shining or The Dead Zone.
Probably because Stanley Kubrick was a bit of a twat, he made Clockwork Orange without even reading the full version of the book — the US version he read lacked the final chapter and without that it’s just a nasty film about nasty people doing nasty things; Anthony Burgess was furious with the film and disowned it completely.
