Pet Sematary — Official Trailer


added: Wed, Oct 10th '18

Following the success of last year's "IT," it appears another Stephen King horror classic has gotten the Hollywood treatment, and it's bound to scare the overalls off of you.

Check out the first official trailer for the forthcoming film adaptation of King's 1983 horror novel "Pet Sematary," which tells the spooky story of the Creed family who, after relocating to a small rural town in Maine, discover that they live near a mysterious secluded pet cemetery that can inexplicably bring back the dead.

It's the second time the book has been turned into a feature film, following the 1989 cult version. And this modern-day remake stars Jason Clarke (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, First Man) and Amy Seimetz (Netflix's Stranger Things, Alien: Covenant) as Louis and Rachel Creed, a married couple with two young children.

Emmy-winner John Lithgow (Netflix's The Crown, Showtime's Dexter) also stars as Louis and Rachel's new elderly next-door neighbor, Jud Crandall. He's the one who delivers the well-known tagline, "sometimes dead is better."

"Pet Sematary" is directed by the filmmaking team of Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer, who previously made the cult Hollywood-set horror movie "Starry Eyes."

Written by horror scribe Jeff Buhler (The Midnight Meat Train, Syfy's Nightflyers), the horror thriller will be arriving in theaters on April 5, 2019.

Based on the seminal horror novel by Stephen King, Pet Sematary follows Dr. Louis Creed (Jason Clarke), who, after relocating with his wife Rachel (Amy Seimetz) and their two young children from Boston to rural Maine, discovers a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near the family's new home. When tragedy strikes, Louis turns to his unusual neighbor, Jud Crandall (John Lithgow), setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences.
