Zum Abschluss des SXSW Film Festivals in Austin, Texas, feierte die Neuverfilmung von Stephen Kings Friedhof der Kuscheltiere seine Premiere. Nachdem der Abspann rollte ließen es sich die anwesenden Zuschauer natürlich nicht nehmen ihre Meinung via Twitter zu verkünden. Einige Meinungs-Tweets haben wir euch unten eingefügt. Insgesamt erntete der Film großes Lob, mit einzelnen, kleinen Ausbrechern ins Negative.
Friedhof der Kuscheltiere startet hierzulande am 4. April in den Kinos. Inszeniert wurde das Remake vom Regie-Duo Dennis Widmyer und Kevin Kolsch , die sich mit ihrem Horrorfilm Starry Eyes für Friedhof der Kuscheltiere empfahlen. Die Hauptrolle übernehmen Jason Clarke (Mudbound), Amy Seimetz (You're Next) und John Lithgow (Interstellar), die nach einem Script von Jeff Buhler (Nightflyers) und David Kajganich (The Terror) agieren.
Seid ihr gespannt auf den Film?
There have been a lot of great Stephen King adaptations lately, but PET SEMATARY feels the most perfectly, specifically Stephen King. It’s just what I want out of this movie in every single way, and that includes SUPER scary. So crazy happy with it. #sxsw— Meredith Borders (@xymarla) March 17, 2019
#PetSematary delivers a solid sense of dread from start to finish. It earns its well-timed jump scares, and terrific sound design and gnarly effects add extra layers of creepy. I think King fans will dig it.— Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) March 17, 2019

#PetSematary is *vicious* and I LOVED it. Super brutal visuals and was thrilled to see Widmyer & Kölsch fully embrace the deeply unsettling themes of mortality from the book. And WOW Jeté Laurence. They really pushed it with this adaptation & it worked for me - big time. 😺 #sxsw— Perri Nemiroff (@PNemiroff) March 17, 2019
So, the new @petsematarymov is GREAT. A worthy adaptation of one of King’s darkest, most difficult books. Makes a few changes, some that work very well, but some small things I missed. However, some MAJOR beats really hit (including one I feared they wouldn’t do... BUT THEY DID!) pic.twitter.com/HEcBRcljkL— Sean O'Connell (@Sean_OConnell) March 17, 2019
#PetSematary: For years now, my wife @noaccentandrea has referred to Jason Clarke as The Professional Bad Husband. I mostly liked the film, but good goddamn, Clarke is the *perfect* actor for King’s brand of grief-stricken, evil-backsliding fathers. pic.twitter.com/k8VlybLzYh— Matthew Monagle (@LabSplice) March 17, 2019
#PetSematary: This adaptation of Stephen King’s novel makes for an undeniably fun popcorn horror flick. That said, even with slicker 2019 production values, a sharper script, and a couple of neat twists, it hits the beats in surprisingly similar manner as the first film #SXSW19 pic.twitter.com/iksGttyusI— Caleb Masters @ SXSW19 (@CMastersTalk) March 17, 2019
*sigh* #PetSematary is very average. Good acting, sound design, and production value. But it’s never scary enough, never tense enough. Once the horror stuff REALLY kicks in, it’s pretty much over. I don’t know what I was expecting, but I wanted more out of this.#SXSW2019 pic.twitter.com/vEW1v2w8aG— Kevin L. Lee (@Klee_FilmReview) March 17, 2019
#PetSematary has the kind of serious balls any good adaptation should have. The themes and encroaching dread of King’s novel are alive and well, but there are enough clever deviations to give diehard fans some welcome surprises. Big ups all around, but Seimetz is a legend. #SXSW— Haleigh Foutch (@HaleighFoutch) March 17, 2019
Was one of the luck ones to see #petsematary tonight. What a thrilling movie. Just wait until the third act! You'll be shaken to your core. The actors were amazing. Hats off to Jete Laurence and the rest of the awesome cast, and of course Alyssa Brooke Levine as Zelda.— Warren Levine (@wlevine72) March 17, 2019
#PetSematary is a fucking BLAST. Holy shit! I’m giddy right now. One of the best King adaptations to date!— Chris Evangelista (@cevangelista413) March 17, 2019
#PetSematary is a hoot and a half! Super dark, twisted, gory, and surprisingly funny! More of a dark comedy than the original movie, and it all works once the fucked up third act kicks in. The cast is fantastic. Jeté Laurence is a revelation! What a way to end #SXSW— Rafael Motamayor @ SXSW (@GeekWithAnAfro) March 17, 2019
Can I say this now? I’ve seen #PetSematary twice and I really really love it. Great scares, fantastic atmosphere, solid acting from everyone. I give it two undead thumbs up. pic.twitter.com/s4yQb5FAvA— Austin Ramey (@realaustinramey) March 17, 2019
Lots (and lots) of thoughts on the new #PetSematary to come, but for now, what I will say is this: holy hell do I respect how bananas it gets in the third act. Absolutely not what I was expecting AT ALL.— Heather Wixson (@thehorrorchick) March 17, 2019
Whelp. New #PetSematary scared the sh*t out of me. Wonderful reimagining!— Devon Bailey (@Devon_Bailey) 17. März 2019
#PetSematary brief review: holy crappin' WOW— KATE @ #SXSW (@OhMyMithrandir) 17. März 2019
#PetSematary hits you like a terrifying and emotional brick. The film manipulates the source material to its own morbid delight. The “big” change is just as effective and menacing as you’d expect it to me. This film is DARK. #SXSW— Zomboy Productionz @ SXSW (@ZProductionz) 17. März 2019
