We had reported a few days ago that the original Pet Sematary will be receiving a limited edition 4K Ultra HD steelbook for its 30th anniversary, available in the UK. Additionally, director Mary Lambert had announced that the film was being restored in 4K for a release this year, and according to DiabolikDVD, it will arrive on March 26th in the states. Sadly, it won't be the aformentioned steelbook.
"After moving to an idyllic home in the countryside, life seems perfect for the Creed family…but not for long. Louis and Rachel Creed and their two young children settle in to a house that sits next door to a pet cemetery – built on an ancient Indian burial ground. Their mysterious new neighbor, Jud Crandall (Fred Gwynne), hides the cemetery’s darkest secret…until a family tragedy brings the secret to life. Now, an unthinkable evil is about to be resurrected. From Stephen King, the Master of the Macabre, comes a journey that leads to hell and back. Though not everyone survives the trip. For the Creeds, home is where the horror is."
