We haven’t even seen the first part of director Andy Muschietti’s It yet, but he recently told the Toronto Sun that he and his sister/writing partner Barbara have their eyes on another Stephen King novel which has also seen a previous adaptation.

“We’re huge fans of Pet Sematary. If we can get our hands on that and do the Pet Sematary we want to do, that will be something. One day, maybe.”

Now I think that the 1989 film version, which had a script from King himself, still holds up extremely well: it’s creepy, scary, morbid and rather sad, though perhaps it could have done with explaining things a bit more. However, a remake has been in the works for some time, with Guillermo del Toro and Matt Greenberg both attached at one point.

It will be in cinemas on September 8.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
