Down to the Wire! Sound Editing for PET SEMATARY Completed Mere Days Before World Premiere
A film isn’t truly finished until the moment of its release. The entertainment industry is awash in tales of films that remained in production with final tweaks being made up until the last possible moment. A perfect example is the upcoming remake of Pet Sematary: The film is slated for its world premiere this Sunday on the closing night of SXSW in Austin. If you think that means the film has been “in the can” for weeks, you’d be mistaken.
Pet Sematary directors Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer hadn’t completed the sound editing process until this past Tuesday. The filmmakers made the admission in a Twitter post:
“Pet Sematary sound mix is done! See you in a few days at SXSW. Gonna collapse now!”
Pet Sematary is certainly one of the most hotly-anticipated horror movies of 2019, and will be the first of a trio of films based on Stephen King novels arriving this year (IT: Chapter Two floats into theaters this September while Doctor Sleep will haunt moviegoers in November). If you aren’t lucky enough to attend SXSW this weekend (or can’t get a seat—the event is likely to draw many hundreds of would-be watchers), Pet Sematary will arrive in US theaters nationwide on April 5th.
