Stephen King Pet Sematary trailer here to fur-eak you out

"Sometimes dead is better".

Just within the past year or so, there have been new adaptations of a number of King's works, including It, The Dark Tower, Gerald's Game, and 1922, plus an original TV show set in King's world, Castle Rock. Quick cuts add up to a lingering spine-tingle in the second adaptation of Stephen King's horror classic.

"Pet Sematary" didn't let sleeping dogs lie.

The trailer reveals Dr Louis Creed, played by Jason Clarke, and his family relocating from Boston to rural Maine. 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. Stephen King's previous novel adaptation, IT, was a massive success when it released a year ago. The film was be directed by Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch (Starry Eyes) from a script by Jeff Buhler.

King published Pet Sematary in 1983, and six years later, it was turned into a moderately terrifying movie (which I watched when I was way too young - I'm still wary of high-speed trucks), followed by a bad sequel. "It was big and scary and awesome, but if you think about the reality of the Zelda situation, what that would do to a family, with her wasting away in this bedroom, and a younger sister being frightened of her older sister's debilitating illness, that on its own is pretty scary".

Take a look at the trailer above. Instead, it'll hone in on what makes the story so horrifying.

It truly is a great time to be a fan of Stephen King.

Paramount Pictures unleashes Pet Sematary to theaters on April 5, 2019.
