Stephen King is the "king" of horror. As a child, I grew up reading his books late into the night with a flashlight under my covers. In case any of you didn't know, it's the best way to read anything creepy, as it helps put you into that eerie mood.
Guillermo Del Toro is a director who does an incredible job at capturing the creepy, the unusual, the macabre, and the fantastical. Have you seen Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth, or, most recently, Crimson Peak?
Most recently, Del Toro expressed his desire to turn King's Pet Sematary into a film.
In 1989, Mary Lambert adapted the book's story for the screen and directed it as well. Jeff Buhler more recently has also tried adapting a modern version with Paramount, which originally had Juan Carlos Fresnadillo as director, but his efforts have not landed in anything official.
Perhaps GDT can use his social media as a platform to show that fans would really be interested in another make of this story. We all know Del Toro would be phenomenal at bringing a modern twist to this haunting scare.
