Though it originally seemed to be targeting a theatrical release via the Paramount Players label, it appears the studio’s plans for ‘Pet Sematary: Bloodlines’ have evolved. The prequel movie will now be debuting as part of Paramount+’s Peak Screaming strand later this year.

Directed by Lindsey Beer (making her directorial debut after working as a writer on the likes of ‘Chaos Walking’ and Netflix’s ‘Sierra Burgess Is a Loser’), this will serve as the prequel to the 2019 remake of Stephen King’s classic.

The new movie is being billed as “an untold chapter” from King’s tome.

King’s original novel –– which he considers his scariest –– was originally published in 1983. It follows a doctor named Louis Creed and his family, who move from Chicago to Ludlow. When the family’s cat is killed by a speeding truck on the highway near their home, Louis’ older neighbor Judd Crandall suggests burying the animal in a local, strange pet cemetery (the famous “Sematary” mis-spelling is by the locals).

Church then seems to come back… But he’s not quite the same. And when Louis’ son Gage is also killed on the road, he makes the somewhat questionable decision to bury him in the same mystical plot of land. And terror ensues…

The book has been adapted a few times –– most famously in 1989 by director Mary Lambert (that movie itself spawned a sequel, ‘Pet Sematary II’, also directed by Lambert and released in 1992). In 2019, Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer were behind the remake of the original story, working from a script by Jeff Buhler.

Kölsch and Widmyer ruled themselves out of working on future films around the time ‘Bloodlines’ was first touted, with Widmyer telling Polygon:

“If you were going to do more, you’d probably do backstory stuff. I’d be really interested to see how somebody would do a sequel to this movie. It probably won’t be us.”

Buhler would go on to write the early drafts of ‘Bloodlines’, with Beer taking over when she came on to direct.

‘Pet Sematary: Bloodlines’ will be on Paramount+ on October 7th, setting it up ready for Halloween.
