ABOUT THE FILM
Pet Sematary is a 1989 supernatural horror film written by Stephen King and directed by Mary Lambert. After Louis accepts a new doctor position, his young family picks up and moves from Chicago to rural Maine. Things quickly go awry. (Are you surprised?) Is that country road in front of the house actually a rural highway filled with semi-trucks on the regular? Does that quaint walking path in the woods actually lead to a bizarre plot of local buried pets? Can a doctor cheat death? (Hah. Hah. What do you think?)
ABOUT THE GUEST ARTIST
Zefyr Lisowski is a trans and queer writer, artist, and North Carolinian currently living in NYC. More here!
ABOUT THE SERIES, IT CAME FROM THE CLOSET
Hosted by OMEN and inspired by the collection of essays, It Came From the Closet: Queer Reflections on Horror , the series focuses on horror movies through a queer lens. From October until March 2024, we'll be screening and discussing a new film and companion essay on the 13th of every month. More about the series here.
