We recently wrote about a possible remake or reboot of the classic Pet Sematary – based on the Stephen King novel – but in the meantime, you can get the Unearthed & Untold documentary about the making of the original cult horror movie

Unearthed and Untold DVD Blu-ray coverWhenever a movie reaches the silver screen and ultimately even becomes an iconic classic, it’s hard to imagine that anyone would’ve been against the movie being made in the first place. It’s easy to think of these movies as an obvious success, but there was a time (a few dark years in the 1980s), when some people believed the age of Stephen King stories was over. That’s one of the reasons it was difficult to get Pet Sematary made into a movie.

Okay, maybe it also had quite a bit to do with the fact that the story involved both kids and animals, which are two notoriously difficult elements to control on any film production. Having them both didn’t exactly make things easier.

The documentary Unearthed & Untold: The Untold Path to Pet Sematary is a work that was five years in the making, but was completed with the participation of both the cast, director, casting director, crew and town’s people involved. And there’s lots of previously unseen footage from the sets in Maine, so really, it’s a must for any fan of Pet Sematary.

Right now you can get a Limited Edition bundle package, which includes the documentary (obviously!) on DVD/Blu-ray along with the official poster and a T-shirt. However, in order for this offer to actually become reality, there’s a minimum requirement of 1,000 units sold. In other words, it takes a village to raise this special deal.

UPDATE: There’s no longer a minimum requirement, so if you order this Limited Edition bundle package, you are guaranteed to get it – but the promotion still ends on May 18, so don’t wait too long!

Check out the trailer for Unearthed & Untold right here to get a taste of what it has in store for you:

Heaven of Horror has no stake in this, but we do have a soft spot for anything involving Stephen King, and wanted to help spread the word that this offer exists. So, when we were contacted by the people behind this offer, we wanted to help out and so we wrote this little piece, you’re reading right now.

You can find the special offer for the Unearthed & Untold: The Untold Path to Pet Sematary Limited Edition bundle package right here!

I write reviews and recaps on Heaven of Horror. And yes, it does happen that I find myself screaming, when watching a good horror movie. I love psychological horror, survival horror and kick-ass women. Also, I have a huge soft spot for a good horror-comedy. Oh yeah, and I absolutely HATE when animals are harmed in movies, so I will immediately think less of any movie, where animals are harmed for entertainment (even if the animals are just really good actors). Fortunately, horror doesn't use this nearly as much as comedy. And people assume horror lovers are the messed up ones. Go figure!
