CREEPY CEMETERIES | Offscreen
Cemeteries are the bread and butter for horror fans. The creepier the better, with bonus points for nightly and misty settings. Things get even cozier when the inhabitants of these final resting places wake up to crawl their way up to the surface.
“Pet Sematary” proves that not only people can come back from the dead. We're not talking about the “reboot” that was released on our big screens earlier this year, but the original cinematic Stephen King adaptation from 30 years ago. King wrote the screenplay himself and plays a cameo as priest. An effecient and horrifying genre exercise from director Mary Lambert.
A spooky cemetery in the middle ages is the central location in “Army of Darkness”, the third and last installment of Sam Raimi's “Evil Dead” series. Bruce Campbell plays Ash, the role that would turn him into a cult icon. This time, he lands in the 14th century, where he has to face a small army of skeletons, among other things. Horror with the H of Humor.
Not long after moving to the countryside, the Creeds lose their beloved cat. An old, friendly neighbor advises to bury the animal at the nearby pet cemetery. A few days later, the cat returns. Unfortunately, the once friendly kitty is now every ailurophobe's nightmare.
