In this dark remake of the 1989 film, and based on the bestselling novel by Stephen King, Dr. Louis Creed (Clark) and his wife, Rachel (Seimetz), relocate from Boston to rural Maine with their two young children. The couple soon discover a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near their new home.

 

Animal trainer Melissa Millett revealed that a total of five cats, all rescues, were cast to play Church, although ultimately one of them dropped out after getting scared on the set. The feline actors were accommodated in five trailers, along with their human trainers, although one had to be kept in a separate trailer from the others because it did not get along with its castmates. Millett noted, "The only good working cat is a happy cat...They were quite spoiled." The film crew even built an area near the trailers, nicknamed a "catio," where the hard-working kitties could play and relax between takes.

 

The cats spent two months in training for the shoot, which took around 10 weeks. Aside from the one cranky cat, the rest reportedly got along well with each other and with the movie's human stars, including Jason Clarke and John Lithgow. The quintet of feline stars all found homes after the shoot was done: two were adopted by the movie's animal coordinator, Millett found homes for another two with friends, and kept one herself.

 

For the five cat's makeup, egg whites and Cherry Knoll chalk block was used to make their fur look matted, then leaves, pieces of dried grass, and light dirt were stuck on. To create a fake blood effect they used corn syrup mixed with organic food coloring. The cats did not appear stressed, rather they ate food and treats, drank water, and even used the litter box, while getting their makeup applied.
