Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
It’s October 1st, so that means we’re starting our all-horror run of The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day! Everybody rejoice! I’ve got some really good stuff I’ve been hoarding all year for this very month.
I’m going to start small, though. Small, but still incredibly creepy. Pet Sematary itself is a very off-putting film, which is nothing but a compliment to Mary Lambert. Stephen King’s novel was one of the only times I got creeped out when reading his stuff (the other two notable creepers were The Shining and IT) and the movie has all of the character of his book as well as that doomed tone.
In fact, Pet Sematary was the only one of King’s books that he thought twice about releasing, not because he didn’t like it, but because he thought it went too far. And too far it goes, alright, but in the best ways possible.
I love this movie, I love Fred Gwynne’s Maine accent and country wisdom, I love that fucking horrible nightmare sister from Denise Crosby’s flashbacks, I love the mythology involved and most of all I love how they took a cute little tyke (Miko Hughes) and made him the scariest thing ever.
Thanks to reader Todd Spence for sending this one along. Enjoy!
Ughhhh… creepy little dude! No fair… no fair… no fair…
