Author Stephen King has already shared his opinion on the adaptation: “In the book, this is the story Jud Crandall tells Louis Creed to try and dissuade him from using the Pet Sematary,” he Tweeted. “The screenplay takes a few liberties, but it’s a fine story. David Duchovny is excellent.
“The secret, as always, is caring about the characters.”
