Top Reasons Why PET SEMATARY Is One Of The Scariest Stephen King Inspired Movies

petsematary_bd_oslv_3dskw_mechStephen King is very well known for being a master of writing classic novels full of terror and suspense. The story of Pet Sematary is no exception and the original book was published in 1983. Now, in the 2019 adaptation of the 1989’s frightening and campy movie, a few twists were made but the terror-filled experience is still very present.

If you haven’t seen it yet, Pet Sematary tells the story of the Creed family, who relocates from Boston to rural Maine, they soon discover an ancient burial ground hidden deep in the woods near their new home. When tragedy strikes, the grief-stricken father is driven by the cemetery’s sinister power, setting off a perilous chain of events that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences. Pet Sematary will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack this July 9, but first, here are a few things you did not know about this film that make it the scariest one yet.

The Film Is Based On A Real-Life Experience

Stephen King based this story on a real-life experience he had in the 70’s when he lived in Maine with his family. They lived on the edge of the Maine woods next to a road where heavy, loaded trucks used to drive through. The lives of many local pets were taken in various accidents, and local kids used to bury them in a pet cemetery deep in the woods. King’s inspiration for his book, came after he found his daughter’s cat tragically dead on the side of the road.

Stephen King References (Easter Eggs) Can Be Seen Throughout

It may result very interesting for Stephen King fans to watch this movie as it features and sneak peeks various connections to a few of King’s horror novels like Cujo or It. These novels were also set in the state of Maine, and during this film adaptation, we recommend you watch out for clues or easter eggs about nearby towns of Derry and Castle Rock.

Creepy Tagline

With no doubt, King’s Pet Sematary will be remembered as one of the most terrifying movies, and its most famous line will stick with the audiences for years to come. The “sometimes, dead is better” quote has terrified us since the book publication, through the first adaption and to this year’s film.

 

Experience this thrilling movie at the edge of your couch this upcoming July 9 available on 4K Ultra HD, DVD, Blu-ray, and Digital everywhere. You’ll have a chance to enjoy watching exclusive bonus features like an alternate ending, extra tales, deleted, and extended scenes!

Illumination’s tenth feature, “The Secret Life of Pets 2,” is the highly anticipated sequel to the 2016 comedic blockbuster that had the biggest opening weekend ever for an original film, animated or otherwise. 

Packed with Illumination’s signature irreverence and subversive humor, this new chapter explores the emotional lives of our pets, the deep bond between them and the families that love them, and answers the question that has long intrigued every pet owner: What are your pets really doing when you’re not at home?

Terrier Max (Patton Oswalt) is coping with some major life changes. His owner (Ellie Kemper) is now married and has a toddler, Liam. Max is so worried about protecting the boy that he develops a nervous tic.

On a family trip to a farm, Max and mutt Duke (Eric Stonestreet) encounter canine-intolerant cows, hostile foxes and a terrifying turkey, all of which only elevates Max’s anxiety.

Luckily, Max gets some guidance from veteran farm dog Rooster (Harrison Ford, making his animated-film debut), who pushes Max to ditch his neuroses, find his inner alpha, and give Liam a little more freedom.

Meanwhile, while her owner is away, plucky Pomeranian Gidget (Jenny Slate) tries to rescue Max’s favorite toy from a cat-packed apartment with a little help from her feline friend, Chloe (Lake Bell), who has discovered the joys of catnip. 

And crazy-but-cute bunny Snowball (Kevin Hart) gets delusions of grandeur that he’s an actual superhero after his owner Molly starts dressing him in superhero pajamas.

But when Daisy (Tiffany Haddish), a fearless Shih Tzu, shows up to ask for Snowball’s help on a dangerous mission, he’ll have to summon the courage to become the hero he’s only been pretending to be.

Can Max, Snowball, Gidget and the rest of the gang find the inner courage to face their biggest fears?

“The Secret Life of Pets 2” is produced by Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and his longtime collaborator Janet Healy, the visionary team behind Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch and the Despicable Me and Minions franchise, and is written by returning Pets screenwriter Brian Lynch. The film is directed by returning filmmaker Chris Renaud, who also directed Illumination’s Despicable Me series and Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax. thesecretlifeofpets.com

Nelufar Hedayat uses her journalistic integrity through her investigation for STORY OF GOD

Written by Jesus Figueroa

Journalist Nelufar Hedayat found that being a seeker for “Story of God with Morgan Freeman” was something very different from what she is use to, but being a journalist helped her be unbiased while on her assignment.

Religion can be an extremely sensitive subject, but Hedayat said that with her history of journalism she is able to put her own faith and believes aside and cover her topic for “Story of God.”

Hedayat visits the ruins of the ancient city of Pergamon and learns about the throne built for Zeus that Christians later dubbed “Satan’s throne” to demonize the old gods.

The role of investigative journalist was not going to work in this assignment, Hedayat said. To get something worthwhile she needed to step back from finding truth and rather find meaning which says is something much different.

The viewers of the show should watched with an open mind. A viewer needs to be patient and take in as much as possible to learn about themselves and about others around them as well.

“Story of God” is meant to be a way to accept others as others accept different believes as well.

Hedayat said that she was born in one of the poorest countries in the east and was able to study in one of the most diverse cities in the world and these amazing assurances have helped her gain a perspective which helped her not have a bias while pursuing this story.

Everyone has a story to tell and Hedayat said she was happy and honored to be able to hear these stories from people who shared them so willingly.

Hedayat said, that on a personal level, being part of “Story of God’ helped her to see that religions do not separate people, but rather they are all so similar and should unite people. These stories she was able to listen to helped her realize just how passionate people are about their religions.

Award-Winning Video Agency Artex Productions Creates Film for Celebrity Cruises’ Billion Dollar Investment CELEBRITY EDGE, Its First Ship In More Than Six Years

IMG_7644

“The Making of Edge” Showcases Celebrity’s Relentless Pursuit of Perfection and Evolution of the Guest Experience in Partnership with World-Renowned Designers and Architects

IMG_7643

Celebrity Edge is Celebrity Cruises’ first new ship in over six years, and it has already made an impact in the cruising industry thanks to its commitment to design and technological innovation. Inspired by the success and recent popularity of high-end film work covering the processes of artists and craftsmen Celebrity hired a team of filmmakers, Artex Productions, to dig deeper into the story and to create a more beautiful experience for viewers, one that paralleled the experience of being on Celebrity Edge itself.

Through lush cinematography and placing the focus back on aesthetics and craft, “The Making of Edge” explores the ideas behind the inception, creation, and design of the ship, and what the designers and architects intended and their process and passion for what they do. The 30-minute film, first of its kind in the industry, crosses continents and spans over two years of filming, following world-famous architects like Tom Wright (creator of the Burj al Arab, the famous sailboat-shaped building that graces the skyline in Dubai) and designers like Kelly Hoppen as they share their inspirations and processes in an intimate and personal way.

“We wanted the film to represent the experience of going on Celebrity Edge, in that it was beautiful, thoughtful about every detail, and it was a true labor of love on the part of its creators,” said Tim Warren, Chief Creative Officer, Artex Productions. “I don’t think there’s ever been a piece quite like this commissioned by the cruise industry.”

“The response to the transformational Celebrity Edge has been just incredible. So many people want to know what it took to design, build and launch this transformational ship,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises. “’The Making of Edge’ special will give viewers a behind-the-scenes view and many stories that have yet to be told by so many who were involved in its creation. We are so thrilled to share this exclusive insider’s perspective with the world.”

Celebrity Edgewas the first ship to be completely designed using 3D technology, another element that the film wanted to capture. The film experience makes extensive use of high-end 3D renderings to show viewers the spaces as the designers intended them, in order to make a powerful connection to how the final ship came out.

“The Making of Edge” aired on NBC affiliate WTVJ/NBC6 on March 16, 2019, at 7:00 PM in Miami-Dade and Broward counties.

In summer 2019, the ship will transport guests to the stunning vistas of the Mediterranean with a range of seven- to 11-night sailings from iconic cities like Barcelona and Rome. Sailing round-trip from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Celebrity Edge made her first maiden voyage on December 9, 2018. Bookings are now open at www.celebritycruises.com/edge, or through a travel advisor. Building on Celebrity Edge‘s incredible momentum, she’ll be joined by Celebrity Apex in 2020, and two additional sister ships in 2021 and 2022.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy Sunday!!

Just wanted to take a second to wish ya’ll a Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I remember growing up here in Miami, I never really told people I was Irish because I stuck more with my Cuban side. As I’ve grown older, I’ve learned to appreciate both sides of my heritage! You’ll never find me without a claddagh ring (or my claddagh & shamrock tattoos lol).

So, go outside and find some 4-leaf clovers & enjoy some corned beef & cabbage as we will be!

Sending ya’ll luck & love!
