You will probably be excused if you do a “double take” while walking or driving along Main Road over the next 24 hours or so.
A stretch of our main thoroughfare has been transformed into the Hollywood version of Ludlow, Maine, a town of about 400 people just off I95, not far from the New Brunswick border.
Ludlow is the setting for Stephen King’s novel, Pet Sematary (that is the correct spelling of the title).
A screen adaptation of the book was released in 1989 and now the re-boot is being shot, at least partially, in Hudson.
We are going to lose access to a few blocks of Main Road from time to time between now and Saturday morning but the production crew will be doing its best to limit disruption.
All the timing and location details of the shoot…(“the shoot” – listen to me – all of a sudden I’m movie people), anyway, all the details are available by clicking here to access the Town Of Hudson website.
So be patient and if you happen across some people, probably dressed in black with large rolls of tape, walkie talkies and various tools hanging from their belts be kind – they’re Movin’ Picture Folk just trying to do their jobs.
Here are some of the changes you might miss if your not paying attention:
Ecole St-Thomas is now Ludlow Composite.
Sauve’s becomes Cassidy’s Dogs and Burgers.
Clarence & Cripps is a pub now.
(not a bad idea Nikki and Derek)
Beach and Main is now Ferndale and Main and apparently you can get to Ardmore down there as well.
Here are a number of other shots of businesses and street signs that have been transformed:
