‘Pet Sematary’ trailer: Stephen King adaptation looks fur-raising

But as the wise old man ominously notes, "Sometimes dead is better". They knew the power of that place. A remake of Pet Sematary was announced a while ago but we're seeing the first trailer for the new movie today.

The trailer reveals Dr Louis Creed, played by Jason Clarke, and his family relocating from Boston to rural Maine.

Just like Church the cat, Stephen King's book "Pet Sematary" has been revived for another round of on-screen terror. Even at the end of The Shining, Wendy marries Dick Halloran, people forget that, that's not in the movie, but Stephen King has a heart. Are you excited to see the film when it arrives in U.S. theaters on April 5?

It earned an outstanding $700 million at the box office, making the Andy Muschietti-directed "can't sleep, clown'll eat me" creep-fest the highest-grossing horror film of all-time. That's true for horror movies, and especially so if it's a King property. Based on the trailer above, this looks like it'll fit the bill nicely. "So, you have to make that story".

Screenwriter Jeff Buhler previously told Dread Central that the goal for the remake was to "tell a really grounded, character-driven, and psychologically horrific version of Pet Sematary ... the scariest book that King ever wrote". Like IT, Pet Sematary is a project that's already been made once before, but is also one that can do with a fresh coat of paint. But this is a Stephen King story, and the whole thing just descends into something more twisted than you could imagine.
