From The Walking Dead to Stranger Things, the current TV landscape is packed full of great options for horror lovers. Other great choices include Starz’s Ash vs Evil Dead, and Syfy’s anthology series Channel Zero.
One of the best recent horror TV efforts though was Dexter, which ran for 8 seasons from 2006-2013. While some think the show fell off in quality by the later seasons, that doesn’t change the fact that when Dexter was good, it was great.
The crown jewel of Dexter was its lead actor Michael C. Hall, who brought spellbinding life to serial killer of serial killers Dexter Morgan. Dexter may have been a sociopath, but he at least had standards and a code of ethics, such as it was.
Currently, Paramount has Starry Eyes directors Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer set to helm a re-adaptation of Stephen King classic Pet Sematary.
While casting has yet to be announced for that film, EW reports that Pet Sematary and Michael C. Hall are about to enter an unholy alliance of sorts. Hopefully Dexter doesn’t decide to bury his victims in the Micmac graveyard.
Hall will narrate a new audiobook version of Pet Sematary, which will – surprisingly enough – be the first ever unabridged recording of King’s tale of tragic loss and grief-fueled resurrection in the town of Ludlow, Maine.
The unabridged audiobook narrated by Hall will be released by Simon & Schuster Audio on March 27th. If you – like me – enjoy a good dose of aural horror, one could do a lot worse than picking up a copy.
