In September of 2015, TERROR FILMS announced that it had acquired, “UNEARTHED & UNTOLD: The Path To Pet Sematary” – the documentary chronicling the origins of Stephen King’s bestselling horror novel, “PET SEMATARY” and its journey from script to screen.
In celebration of the 27th Anniversary of the original film’s theatrical release, Terror Films has revealed the documentary’s official trailer, poster and a limited time promotion. The details of what’s included in the promotion is provided on the Terror Films Store. The Documentary promotional release will begin on April 27th and continue for 27 Days, ending on May 18th and will be the only time this Limited Edition Offer will be available, prior to the documentary’s official release currently set for October 2016.
The film, which was discovered by Terror Film’s exec Jim Klock at the Rhode Island Flickers’ Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Horror Film Festival in 2014 is an important release for the company and they are not taking it lightly. Terror Films exec, Joe Dain who negotiated the deal with the filmmakers stated, “We not only understand the relevance of our Company’s association with this iconic film via this incredible documentary; more importantly we understand the obligation we have to the fans to make this release as special as possible.”

Filmmakers Campopiano and White stated: “When we first set out for Maine nearly six years ago we thought, at most, we would take some photographs of the filming locations from Stephen King’s Pet Sematary and post them to social media. But upon that very first visit we knew that we had stumbled upon something special — stories, people, and places that had been barely documented for the extensive, global horror fan community.
We knew within that first year that we needed to go back to Maine and continue to dig, not just to satisfy our own curiosities but also to try and bring an in-depth making of story about Pet Sematary to others who also share a deep appreciation for the film. Terror Films has stepped up and showcased a similar love for Pet Sematary but, more importantly, the belief that the stories, people, and places we’ve documented have significance and ought to be shared with anyone who has an interest in Pet Sematary, Stephen King, the horror genre, or film in general.”
The film is set to feature never-before-seen footage from the sets in Maine, interviews with key crew, the town’s people and bonus features, including a fan appreciation sizzle reel, a personal interview with the documentary filmmakers and more. Check out the newly released trailer below.
