Pet Sematary Exhumed: Stephen King Looks Back At His Most Disturbing Story

Stephen King calls one morning to set up an interview — and he’s singing.

“I hear you want to talk about… ‘I don’t wanna be burrrried / in a PET Sem-a-taar-yyy!’” the best-selling author croons over long distance.

The Ramones based that pop-goth song on his 1983 novel, it was featured in the creeptastic cult-favorite 1989 movie, and now — as most things associated with this tale — it gets to live its life again as part of the haunting new version of Pet Sematary hitting theaters April 5.

It stars Jason Clarke and Amy Seimetz as parents who move their family to the edge of the Maine woods, where there is a hidden place that resurrects the dead. Lithgow costars as a kindly neighbor, who reveals secrets best left buried, and Jeté Laurence plays their curious daughter, Ellie, who has too much curiosity for her own good.

King has a complex relationship with Pet Sematary. Over the decades, the 71-year-old storyteller has done a lot of monstrous things to a lot of people in his novels, but the rumor persists that he thinks Pet Sematary crossed a line, that it’s too morbid and troubling, and he only published it to escape a book contract.

It turns out all that is real.

So is a lot of what happened in the book. That’s why it bothers him.

Suntup Editions U.K. Edition of Pet Sematary Print By Gerry Grace

In July 2018, Suntup Editions launched “The British Invasion” series in The Covers Collection with artist Gerry Grace’s 1st U.K. edition cover for IT. This month, they are delighted to share another iconic Gerry Grace print, Pet Sematary. With all the anticipation surrounding the new film adaptation of this 1983 novel by Stephen King, Suntup Editions thought it an appropriate time to let this “cat” out of the bag!

This stunning artwork graced the cover of the 1st U.K. edition of Pet Sematary, a novel King himself thought might never see the light of day. Just a couple of years earlier, King had referred to the story as “too dark” to ever be published. It was only due to a contractual obligation to Doubleday that he agreed to unleash Pet Sematary upon the world, and in doing so created one of the most memorable and beloved novels in his canon. Gerry Grace’s visualization of King’s novel is a masterpiece, and as with all of our prints, you have to see this in person to really appreciate the fine details, presented here for the very first time without the cover text.

These prints are hand-signed by Gerry Grace. Exclusively available through Suntup Editions for your private collection, and limited to just 50 signed copies per size, worldwide.

– Museum Quality Giclée prints.
– Signed and authorized by the original cover artist.
