Default Pet Sematary 4K UHD SteelBook from Zavvi!

Street date is March 25

I'm not 100% sold on the artwork - but it's cool that it's coming to 4K!!

Oh, my Gawd!! YES, YES, YES!!
Agreed the artwork is significantly underwhelming, if not also corny, but man, do I have a soft spot for this movie!

Movies are so rarely great art that if we cannot appreciate great trash
we have very little reason to be interested in them.

Who's releasing this? Directly by Paramount? Hope this gets released in North America too, with the regular blu-ray getting the 4K transfer as well. Not really impressed with that artwork...especially for $44 Cdn....

Also, for a cool documentary about Pet Sematary, I highly recommend Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary. It's a great watch.

Looks like it's Paramount proper pushing this one out. I've seen some pics around for a standard US release that actually looks like the art for the first pressing of the novel - way classy and it'd make for a great SteelBook

I love this movie - I used to see it all the time on TV as a kid and never thought it was scary - because of the timing of the stupid ad breaks. But man it floored me when I was a teenager and finally saw it unedited in a midnight double feature with part 2. Hell of a book too.

MONDO -- Need I say more?

However, either Mondo has been doing a little better with their designs or we've seen so much terrible PopArt we've become desensitized to Mondo being so bad. I do really like how Mondo comes with a plastic sleeve. I bag all by SteelBooks and I don't have to with Mondo.

I think Mondo is still a bit meh. I liked their artwork for The Thing - but didn't get it because I already had the disc, and I dug their Ghost in the Shell (animated) artwork but everything else has just been SO busy. Figuring out how the artwork releates in anyway to the movie is like trying to find Waldo.
