One of my favorite unloved sequels out there is Mary Lambert’s Pet Sematary Two starring Edward Furlong and Clancy Brown. And today we have word via Scream Factory over on Facebook that they will be unleashing the cult classic on Collector’s Edition Blu-ray in February 2020.
This Collector’s Edition will come guaranteed with a slipcover in its first three months of release boasting newly commissioned artwork from artist Laz Marquez. This art is front-facing and the reverse side will feature the original theatrical artwork.
New extras are in progress and will be announced on a later date but evidently director Mary Lambert is on board and very excited about the release!
The sequel begins when, after the death of his wife, veterinarian Chase Matthews (Anthony Edwards) and his 13-year-old son, Jeff (Edward Furlong), move to Ludlow to rebuild their lives. Antagonized by the neighborhood kids, Jeff befriends another outsider, Drew Gilbert, who lives in fear of his cruel stepfather, Gus (Clancy Brown). After Gus cold-bloodily shoots Drew’s beloved dog, the boys bury the body in the local Indian burial grounds – a place rumored to have the powers of resurrection. But when evil is awakened, the boys realize that sometimes you should just let dead dogs lie.
Pet Sematary Two hits Collector’s Edition Blu-ray via Scream Factory on February 25, 2019.
