Pet Sematary: Bloodlines comes to digital, 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD in December

Paramount will be giving the Pet Sematary prequel Pet Sematary: Bloodlines a digital, 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD release in December

Writer/director Lindsey Anderson Beer’s Pet Sematary prequel Pet Sematary: Bloodlines was made specifically for the Paramount+ streaming service, but now it has been announced that Paramount is going to be doing something I wish streaming services would do much more often: while continuing to stream the movie, they will also be giving it a digital, 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD release! The digital version will be available for rent or purchase as of December 5th, with the physical media release following on December 19th.

Said to be “based on an untold chapter penned by Stephen King“, Pet Sematary: Bloodlines centers on a young Jud Crandall in 1969, who has dreams of leaving his hometown behind but soon discovers sinister secrets buried within and is forced to confront a dark family history that will forever keep him connected to the town. Banding together, Jud and his childhood friends must fight an ancient evil that has gripped Ludlow since its founding and, once unearthed, has the power to destroy everything in its path.

The film stars Jackson White (Tell Me Lies), Forrest Goodluck (The Revenant), Jack Mulhern (Mare of Easttown), Henry Thomas (The Haunting of Hill House), Natalie Alyn Lind (The Goldbergs), Isabella Star LaBlanc (True Detective: Night Country), Samantha Mathis (The Thing Called Love), Pam Grier (Jackie Brown), and David Duchovny (The X-Files).

Lindsey Anderson Beer directed Pet Sematary: Bloodlines from a screenplay she crafted with Jeff Buhler, who was also a writer on the 2019 version of Pet Sematary. The film was produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian.

Jud Crandall was an elderly man played by Fred Gwynne in the 1989 version of Pet Sematary (watch it HERE) and by John Lithgow in the 2019 movie (watch that one HERE).

I wasn’t very impressed with Pet Sematary: Bloodlines (you can read my 6/10 review of it at THIS LINK), but I’m glad to hear it’s coming to digital, 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD anyway. Will you be buying a copy of the film? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
