*Paramount Pictures has another great thriller it’s on the way to the theaters. In theaters April 5th, the 2019 remake of “Pet Sematary” is of course based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name.
The film headed to SXSW (South by Southwest) annually held in Austin, Texas for its world premiere followed by junket sessions with the cast and media. Jason Clarke and Amy Seimetz who play Louis and Rachel Creed in the movie participated along with directors, Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer.
“For us doing the movie, it’s a lot of work emotionally. It’s constantly mining and digging to find the honesty and dread. It doesn’t go away, it comes back,” said Seimetz.
Clarke explained that after making this film, he’s likely to never get a cat after being bit by cats on set. He told us that he was always handed the cat after the cat was worked up and he didn’t want to hold it. Meanwhile Seimetz said that “cats are evil” and she’s a dog person.
“I’m allergic to cats and they know. I swear to God that they know. They look right at me when I walk in a room and they just go straight for me because they just know. They’re just assholes,” she laughed.
The experience at the premiere was great for Clarke so much so that he hopes to go back and watch more movies with large groups of people. He said he was able to laugh and openly have more fun.
“Last night I took away a great experience with thousands of people in a room which I don’t get very often unless you go to see music or theater.”
His co-star definitely agreed and believes that was what was so fun about (the) genre and specifically this movie because it rings true to a human experience of grief and loss, but at the same time it’s a wild ride.
“It’s such a good genre movie in the best way possible because there’s a lot of laughs and a lot of scares and a lot of honesty in it but that theatric experience of being able to interact with the film is so fun,” told us.
