We first heard last year that Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary, an indie documentary about both the film and the book Pet Sematary by Stephen King, was acquired by Terror Films. We now have a trailer to show us what’s in store in the documentary!

The documentary took filmmakers John Campopiano and Justin White nearly 5 years to complete, but the film is now finished. The film will include interviews with the director and cast, the origins of the story, never-before-seen footage from the set in Maine, and the legacy and cult following the film established.

In celebration of the 27th Anniversary of the original film’s theatrical release, we’ve been brought Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary official trailer, poster, and a special, one time limited edition promotion, beginning April 27th and continue for 27 days until May 18th. This will be the only time this Limited Edition Offer will be available, prior to the documentary’s official release, which is currently set for October of this year. During this limited time frame fans will be able to order the Limited Edition Combo Pack, which will include a dual Region Free DVD / Blu-Ray copy of the documentary, featuring interviews with Director Mary Lambert and the entire cast, including Dale Midkiff, Denise Crosby, Miko Hughes, Brad Greenquist, Susan Blommaert, the Berdahl Twins, and more. The offer will also include bonus features, including a fan appreciation sizzle reel and a personal interview with the documentary filmmakers. You can purchase the limited edition DVD/Blu-Ray set here starting next week.


Campopiano and White had this to say about their film: “When we first set out for Maine nearly six years ago we thought, at most, we would take some photographs of the filming locations from Stephen King’s Pet Sematary and post them to social media. But upon that very first visit we knew that we had stumbled upon something special — stories, people, and places that had been barely documented for the extensive, global horror fan community. We knew within that first year that we needed to go back to Maine and continue to dig, not just to satisfy our own curiosities but also to try and bring an in-depth making of story about Pet Semataryto others who also share a deep appreciation for the film.  Terror Films has stepped up and showcased a similar love for Pet Sematary but, more importantly, the belief that the stories, people, and places we’ve documented have significance and ought to be shared with anyone who has an interest in Pet Sematary, Stephen King, the horror genre, or film in general.”
