Taxes. Real life.
I think one of the reasons we gravitate towards body horror, even in this film, Pet Sematary, with the Zelda visions or the transforming in this version, that’s something we tackle a lot in our films, and I think that’s a scary thing. Same with Pet Sematary being about death, something we are all gonna go through. For a lot of us, unless you’re in an accident or sudden illness, for most of us, the lead up to our death is going to be things like our body turning on us and aging as we get there. So it’s a scary thing to feel, even as me and Dennis are getting older, there are physical things like my eyesight is different, or my knees hurt sometimes, and it’s a scary thing to think of the body breaking down on you.
