‘Pet Sematary: Bloodlines’ First Look At Stephen King’s Paramount+ Horror Prequel

Stephen King’s scariest franchise, Pet Sematary, has dropped a first-look at the upcoming Paramount+ film, Pet Sematary: Bloodlines, which serves as a prequel to the 1983 horror novel that has been adapted twice in 1989 and 2019. Fans of King can look for it to hit the streamer just in time for Halloween on October 6th.

The film marks the directorial debut of Chaos Walking writer Lindsey Beer, and takes us back to the fictional town of Ludlow, Maine. Set in 1969, the story centers on a young Jud Crandall, played by Jackson White, who has dreams of leaving his hometown behind until he unearths sinister secrets and an evil presence buried within the town’s dark past. Joining with his childhood friends, Jud must battle this terrible force that has haunted Ludlow since its founding.

Joining White in the cast are Henry Thomas, David Duchovny, Pam Grier, Forrest Goodluck, Isabella Star LaBlanc, and Natalie Alyn Lind. Beer directed and co-wrote the script with Jeff Buhler.
