This September, join On Set Media for a truly one of a kind event, watch Stephen King’s Pet Semetary in the real cemetery that inspired the movie! Things don’t get much creepier than that.

“Will you come over and play with us? First, we play with Jud. Then mommy came. We had an awfully good time …now we want to play with you! Join ON SET CINEMA on Saturday, September 19th for a very special screening of the original Pet Sematary at the actual Pet Sematary filming location in Ellsworth, Maine! We will be watching the film outside, exactly where the infamous “Pet Sematary” sign and graveyard once stood. Maine is such a beautiful state – make a weekend trip out of it and visit Acadia National Park only 20 minutes away or check out Stephen King’s house in Bangor only 40 minutes north. We encourage everyone to stay all night at The Colonial Inn, which is located directly by the event location – ticket holders will be emailed a 15% off discount code for September 19th! And we don’t recommend bringing your dead animals – losing a pet can be devastating, but just remember …sometimes, dead is better.”

On Set Cinema is an ongoing film series that takes fandom a step further with rare movie screenings of cult favorites and horror classics at their actual filming locations. Created by Kenny Caperton, who lives in a life-size replica of Michael Myers’ house from John Carpenter’s original Halloween.

“We all know there’s only so close you can get to a movie when you’re watching it at home from the couch …but what if you could step into the screen for a moment? Watch movies like Beetlejuice, It Follows, The Blob and The Shining at the actual spots where a lot of the action takes place – whether that’s inside a small town department store where Sarah Michelle Gellar ran for her life in I Know What You Did Last Summer or at a California mansion where Sidney Prescott and Billy Loomis face off during the climax of Scream, On Set Cinema takes you there!”

On Set Media is the brainchild of Kenny Caperton. Growing up in the 80s & 90s, like most kids at the time, he spent Friday nights wandering the aisles of local video stores with friends or at home eating junk food while watching late-night cable television. Caperton has always been fascinated by movies, but his love runs much deeper than the average person. He has assimilated his passion for cinema into real life – for almost 20 years Caperton has been taking “vacation” trips all over the US & Canada to visit filming locations from his favorite movies and TV shows: The Shining, Empire Records, It Follows, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, The Goonies, Scream, Dawson’s Creek, Scott Pilgrim VS The World, Stranger Things …the list goes on and on. He even made a full-length feature film that got worldwide distribution without taking a single filmmaking class. Caperton took everything to an entirely new level in 2008 when he decided to build and live in a life-size replica of the infamous Michael Myers’ house from his favorite movie of all time – John Carpenter’s 1978 horror classic, Halloween.

Kenny truly understands what it means to immerse oneself in something they love and has integrated this into his daily life. Now he wants to share that experience with other fans through On Set Cinema!
