TRAILER: Pet Sematary Continues The Stephen King Resurgence

Pet Sematary provides a teasing glimpse into the new version of horror master Stephen King’s novel about dead things coming back to torment the living. The trailer here isn’t a teaser, but it sure feels like there’s a whole lot more to what we see here. Pet Sematary gets projected onto big screens in April of 2019.


About Pet Sematary

Official Description: Louis Creed, his wife Rachel and their two children Gage and Ellie move to a rural home where they are welcomed and enlightened about the eerie “pet cemetery” located near their home. After the tragedy of their cat being killed by a truck, Louis resorts to burying it in the mysterious pet cemetery, which is definitely not as it seems, as it proves to the Creeds that sometimes, dead is better.

Stephen King is hot again, and Pet Sematary is one of his most beloved novels, so a reboot here is a logical step. The film comes from duo-directors Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer who both previously worked on the Scream TV series on MTV. From the looks of the trailer, the production looks right on par with the same top-notch treatment of the previous few King novels-turned-movies.


Pet Sematary features a cast that includes …

Jason Clarke as Louis Creed
Amy Seimetz as Rachel Creed
John Lithgow as Jud Crandall
Jeté Laurence as Ellie Creed
Hugo Lavoie and Lucas Lavoie as Gage Creed
Obssa Ahmed as Victor Pascow


Fans of Stephen King’s novels are cautiously optimistic as book-to-film adaptations have always been hit-or-miss, particularly when it comes to King’s stories. A perfect example is The Dark Tower versus It (2017). One latter a hit and the former a miss. The trailer here doesn’t give a great sense of where we’re going to end up but does show a competent film that has the necessary components for a scary and fun time.
