Tis the season for all sorts of spookiness, and in keeping with the holiday spirit, we have our very first sneak peek at the upcoming remake of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary.

Lady Gaga Fans Are Spamming Twitter With Fake Negative ‘Venom’ Reviews
Step aside, Russian spambots. The Lady Gaga stans are here, and they are not about to let Tom Hardy’s thicc comic book anti-hero outshine Mother Monster’s big movie debut.

MoviePass Is Trying to Re-Enroll Subscribers Without Their Consent (Again)
MoviePass continues to suffer the longest, slowest, and most painful death in business history. Rather than admit defeat, the company is delaying the inevitable.

‘IT: Chapter Two’ Will Feature One of the Book’s Wildest Moments (No, Not That One)
There are some pretty bonkers moments in Stephen King’s IT, including a couple that would fall pretty low on the list of “most likely to be included in a film adaptation.” As it turns out, at least one of those scenes — a climactic supernatural confrontation — will appear in IT: Chapter Two, Andy Muschietti’s sequel to last year’s hit adaptation of the iconic horror novel. Before you get worried, it’s not THAT scene.
Jordan Peele Reportedly in Talks for ‘Candyman’ Remake
Jordan Peele is understandably in high demand after making his feature directing debut with last year’s phenomenal Get Out.
