Sometimes Dead is Better but in 2019 Pet Sematary will be alive and well in our cinemas! Today Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for the new remake of Stephen King’s terrifying classic novel. With Halloween only a few weeks away, what better time to release the first trailer. Oh boy, it’s a creepy one that sets the tone, plenty of jumps scares and remake that wants to be different from the original.
King’s 1983 novel is regarded as one of the best books in the genre. The 1989 film adaptation had its moments but was regarded as a let down by some critics. A film based on loss, most disturbing and Macabre books, but can you do without fluffy the cat? Starry Eyes directors Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer make it pretty clear in this trailer their film will be different. King himself loves what he’s seen so far too! Perfect seal of approval!
Jason Clarke stars as Louis Creed with his wife Rachel (Amy Seimetz), relocate their family to a rural life. When Tragedy Strikes Louis turns to his unusual neighbor (John Lithgow), things take a terrifying downturn.
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 has a ‘Coming Soon’ in regards to its UK and Irish cinema release. In the U.S release date is April 2019, don’t be surprised if we share a similar date (possibly 5th April 2019).
The film also stars Jeté Laurence, Hugo Lavoie, and Lucas Lavoie.
