For this year’s Halloween episode, we’re digging up a forgotten favourite! Yes, it’s time to revive the conversation around director Mary Lambert and her grossly (emphasis on the GROSS!) underrated 1989 adaptation of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary. Follow us to the forests of Ludlow, Maine as we unearth our true feelings about the 2019 remake and the ways in which it (im)pales in comparison to Mary’s revolting and revolutionary take. We also mourn the loss of Mary’s original concept for Pet Sematary II (which would have followed Ellie Creed!) and wonder whether the Fun and Fucked Up horror film is dead, or just buried under a pile of “elevated” yet uninteresting spins on the genre.
We Really Like Her! is produced by Emily Gagne and Danita Steinberg, edited by Danita Steinberg, with a theme song by Emily Milling.
