Pet Sematary Trailer: What’s Dead Should Stay Dead

Pet Sematary Trailer: What’s Dead Should Stay Dead

This new adaptation sticks close to the story in the book, about a family that moves to a rural home where they discover a "Pet Sematary" nearby. "Sometimes dead is better". There is much anticipation for It: Chapter Two next September, and ahead of that, a new adaptation of his classic 1983 novel Pet Sematary is due. 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.

The original 1989 movie (in which King appeared as a minister) made more than $57 million. It was previously brought to the big screen in 1988, leading to a sequel in 1992.

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" - that's the official description from the promotional ad. Let us know if this trailer has you pumped or not!

As for who will be portraying the kids, Jeté Laurence will play Ellie and three-year-old twins Hugo and Lucas Lavoie will be Gage, her little brother.

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.

Watch the trailer in the video above. Pet Sematary is scheduled to open in theaters on April 5, 2019.

Based on Widmyer's comments and this first trailer, it seems that Pet Sematary will distance itself from its film predecessor by avoiding coming across as over-the-top or somewhat campy, like the original Pet Sematary did.
