Constant Listeners, welcome to Ludlow, Maine, where the wind blows down from the nearby hills, speaking in the tongues of the undead. We must listen to them, for they tell all our secrets and hold our innermost fears. Come follow us down the path, towards the Pet Sematary.

Join Editor-in-Chief Michael Roffman as he talks to actress, writer, producer, director, and editor Amy Seimetz, who plays Rachel Creed in Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kölsch’s new rendering of Stephen King’s 1983 sordid tale.

Together, they discuss childhood superstitions, growing up with Scholastic horror, the understated romance of the ghastly horror novel, and which King tale she’d love to adapt herself. She also teases a few new projects coming up!

Listen above and catch Pet Sematary when it hits theaters on April 5th. To help pass the pass, read fellow Loser Dan Caffrey’s glowing review following last week’s South by Southwest premiere.
