Read my spoiler-free movie review of In The Tall Grass (2019).

Based on the novel by Stephen King and Joe Hill; director Vincenzo Natali’s In The Tall Grass is a new horror / thriller starring Patrick Wilson, Avery Whitted, Laysla De Oliveira and Harrison Gilbertson.

It’s the story of a sister and brother who venture into a vast field of tall grass, after hearing a young boy’s cry for help – but only to realise that there may be no way out…

I can’t help but wonder, is there actually a novelist who’s had more films made based on their books than Stephen King? I think not.

I want to see this one because I’m curious about where King’s imagination will take us this time.

On a related note, if a stranger is asking for help from within a field of tall grass while I’m on the edge of it, I’d like to believe that not only am I NOT going to enter the tall grass; but what I’d like to think I’d do instead is ask questions first. You know, important questions that the emergency services I’ll be calling instead will need answers to. That all make some sense in my head. That is until I realise that the voice asking for help belongs to a seemingly helpless child.

And just like that, into the tall grass I go… to never be seen again.

Rachel Wilson ,Avery Whitted, Will Buie Jr. and Tiffany Helm also star.

Directed by Kevin Kölsch, Dennis Widmyer and based on the bestselling Stephen King Novel of the same name, Jason Clarke, John Lithgow and Amy Seimetz are the stars of new horror / thriller Pet Sematary.

The story centres around the Creed family who move into a new rural home, and soon learn of the ‘Pet Semetary’ located close by. After their cat is killed by a truck, said cat is laid to rest in the mysterious pet cemetery. The Creeds don’t fully know it yet but the cemetery is not quite as it seems. In fact, it soon proves to them that sometimes, dead is better…

I’ll start by saying that I already love the ‘…sometimes, dead is better‘ line. So spooky!

Having definitely not read the book, I’m drawn in by how clever this story seems to be. I’m interested in the thrills and maybe a few scares… but really, mostly the thrills, because I’m scared.

Naomi Frenette, Maria Herrera, Obssa Ahmed, Bailey Thain, Sonia Maria Chirila, Jeté Laurence and Hugo Lavoie also star.

Pet Sematary Release Dates: April 5th, 2019 (US & UK)…

In Gerald’s Game, Gerald and Jessie are a middle aged couple trying to spice up their marriage in their remote lake house. Unfortunately for them, things really don’t go according to plan. Directed by Mike Flanagan and based on the novel by Stephen King, Carla Gugino, Bruce Greenwood and Henry Thomas star…

This is probably just the kind of thing that my over-active imagination would conjure up and help me foresee, before I’d even consider allowing myself to be handcuffed, given the choice. For a moment I thought the characters were actually having an affair. How much more anxiety ridden Jessie would be if that were the case.

I have to see this to find out how she gets out, especially assuming that she does it without anyone’s help.

Gerald’s Game Release Dates: September 29th, 2017 (US)…
