First ‘Pet Sematary’ Photo Reveals Remake’s Adorably Undead Kitty Cat
Tis the season for all sorts of spookiness, and in keeping with the holiday spirit, we have our very first sneak peek at the upcoming remake of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary.

There is a moment early in Suspiria when Tilda Swinton’s Madame Blanc ruminates on the concept of rebirths and “the inevitable pull they exert and our efforts to escape them.” Blanc uses this description in the context of Volk, a stunning dance production born from the harrowing World War II era of Berlin, but it’s also an apt way to describe Luca Guadagnino’s interpretation of Dario Argento’s stylish horror classic — it’s not a remake, but a rebirth or reincarnation, in which Argento’s old ways are forced to reconcile with Guadagnino’s new.

Before you get worried, it’s not THAT scene.

Hulu Renews ‘Castle Rock’ for Another Season of Stephen King Scares

‘Zombieland 2’ Officially Happening With Original Cast and Filmmakers
With each passing year, the possibility of ever seeing Zombieland 2 seemed less and less likely, which makes today’s news a pleasant surprise.

No, really. It has an actual release date and everything.
