We asked 100 horror fans to name their most anticipated* remakes of 2019 and survey said Child’s Play and Pet Sematary! Join Kim and Jon on this week’s episode of Nightmare on Film Street where we find ourselves knee-deep in kinder trauma and malevolent magic with Tom Holland’s Child’s Play (1988) and Mary Lambert’s Pet Sematary (1989).
*Child’s Play may not be anticipated, quiz was misleading.
WHAT’S KEEPING US CREEPY?
Interested to hear what two superhero-hating, Shyamalan-loving horror fans thought of Glass? We talk briefly about the (anti)climactic conclusion to Shyamalan’s surprise trilogy and speculate on the possible future of the Dark Universe now that Leigh Whannell is directing a new Invisible Man! We also share a few thoughts on how friggin’ cool Mads Mikkelsen looks with an eye patch in Jonas Åkerlund’s Polar, before steering hard into True Crime County to discuss Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes.
