Stephen King is responsible for many iconic horror stories, but perhaps none as disturbing as Pet Sematary, which is being adapted into a feature film now for the second time.

In the film, a family moves into a new suburban home and discovers a mysterious pet cemetary in the woods behind their house. When tragedy strikes, and the family’s pet cat is killed in an accident, they decide to bury it in the graveyard, unwittingly unleashing an unspeakable evil with horrific consequences.

Hot on the heels of last year’s It, Stephen King adaptations are all the rage and this new version of his 1983 novel – bigger, better and way more terrifying – doesn’t disappoint.

A group of horror-film-loving kids form The Monster Squad, a club devoted to their favourite monsters, but soon get more than they bargained for when Count Dracula himself arrives in their small town. Seeking an all-powerful amulet, Dracula has summoned Frankenstein’s Monster, the Werewolf, the Mummy and the Creature from the Black Lagoon to aid him in his evil quest – with only The Monster Squad standing in their way.

Part Goonies, part Ghostbusters, The Monster Squad was dead on arrival in 1987 but much like its many monsters, has been resurrected in the years since. The film now holds cult status among horror fans as a loving homage to classic movie monsters (redesigned just enough by legendary makeup master Stan Winston to avoid infringing on Universal’s copyright).
