Nothing like kicking off your day with a hot cup of coffee and a horrific new trailer for Pet Sematary. The movie is the latest adaptation of the terrifying Stephen King tale, which was previously adapted into a movie back in 1989.
The movie is directed by Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer (Starry Eyes), and stars Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz, John Lithgow, Jeté Laurence, and Hugo Lavoie. Jeff Buhler (The Prodigy, Nightflyers) and David Kajganich (Suspiria, The Terror) wrote the screenplay.

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.

Pet Sematary is set to be released in theaters on April 5th.
Fair warning: The new trailer shows quite a bit, so if you’ve never read the Stephen King book or seen the 1989 movie but are interested in checking out this new adaptation you may want to avoid watching. If you are familiar with the story but happen to really hate spoilers, even you may want to steer clear as the new trailer reveals things that will be different from the previous versions.
They don’t come back the same. Watch the second trailer for Pet Sematary, based on Stephen King’s terrifying novel. In theatres April 5, 2019.
