Another day, another remake. Sigh. Today's lucky property - Stephen King's PET SEMATARY, previously adapted in 1989 by director Mary Lambert and starring that dude from THE MUNSTERS. It was a minor hit with a strong central concept - father buries dead son in enchanted graveyard, kid comes back as a zombie, hilarity ensues - making it an inevitable target for studios too lazy to seek out original ideas.
Speaking of creative types too lazy to seek out original ideas - Alexandre Aja, director of the incredible 2003 French horror flick SWITCHBLADE ROMANCE, is currently being wooed by Paramount to take the reins on this. After all, Aja has since carved out a nice little career remaking other filmmaker's work (see THE HILLS HAVE EYES, MIRRORS, PIRANHA 3D, and the proposed SCANNERS TV series).
Honestly, we're not really that bothered that this franchise is being rebooted (it might actually benefit from it), it's just such a shame that all hope is now gone for Aja - he promised so much, but delivered so little.
