Author Stephen King has passed on his approval for "Pet Sematary: Bloodlines", the upcoming horror film that serves as a prequel to the 2019 film adaptation of his "Pet Sematary" novel.
The horror film will be a prequel to the 2019 movie Pet Sematary, but unlike its predecessor, it is not adapted from a corresponding novel by King. Instead, Pet Sematary: Bloodlines crafts an original storyline that follows young Jud Crandall as he discovers the dark family history that will forever tie him to his hometown of Ludlow, Maine.
King now gives his seal of approval for the story of Pet Sematary: Bloodlines. Taking to Twitter, the author explained that the plot of the Pet Sematary prequel stems from a story Jud tells to Louis Creed in the original novel "to try and dissuade him from using the Pet Sematary."
BLOODLINES: In the book, this is the story Jud Crandall tells Louis Creed to try and dissuade him from using the Pet Sematary. The screenplay takes a few liberties, but it's a fine story. David Duchovny is excellent.— Stephen King (@StephenKing) September 12, 2023
The secret, as always, is caring about the characters.
