Happy Halloween! Meet Church. He was hit by a truck. His can-opener buried him in a Micmac burial ground, and now he has come back to life.
But he’s not like he was before. He smells funny and also, you know, the eyes.
Stephen King adapted his own novel for Mary Lambert’s film. I reviewed Pet Sematary for the Sunday Correspondent in November 1989, back in the days when you still had to explain to a general newspaper readership who King was. I’m still rather proud of myself for leading with it and relegating Krzystof Kieslowski’s A Short Film About Killing (which also, coincidentally, features a dead cat) to third place.
