Henry Thomas and Samantha Mathis Join ‘Pet Sematary’

by | Aug 17, 2021

Two big names have just joined the cast of the latest paramount horror. 

Henry Thomas made a name for himself as a child actor in 1982 playing Elliot in Steven Spielberg’s E.T. But the actor has recently been making big waves in horror, having starred in a series of Mike Flanagan projects including The Haunting of Bly Manor and The Haunting of Hill House, as well as Stephen King adaptions Gerald’s Game and Doctor Sleep. Thomas’ collaboration with Flanagan continues with the upcoming Netflix limited series Midnight Mass due to be released next month.

Joining Thomas will by fellow King veteran Samantha Mathis, who starred in the TV mini series remake of Salem’s Lot (2010), as well as Nightmares & Dreamscapes (2006) and Under the Dome (2013). Her impressive career has only two other horror rolls, which are American Psycho (2000) and the TV series The Strain, so it will be great to get her back into fold.

According to Deadline, Thomas and Mathis are set to continue their King back catalogue by signing up to the new Pet Sematary film. They will be joining cast members Jackson White, Forrest Goodluck, Jack Mulhern, Natalie Alyn Lind, Isabella Star LeBlanc and Pam Grier in a film directed by Lindsey Beer.

Whilst little is know about the project, it’s assumed it will be a sequel to Paramount’s remake in 2019. Maybe even following in the steps of the original 1989 film which had a sequel in 1992.
