Pet Sematary's First Trailer Is As Creepy As You Hoped

Return to Ludlow, Maine, and that creepy little animal graveyard, in the first trailer for Pet Sematary, the new adaptation of the acclaimed Stephen King horror novel.

Fans of the 1989 film, to say nothing of the original book, will undoubtedly be pleased with the tone established with the first footage, as the Creed family moves to rural Maine, only to discover a dangerous road on one side of their home (foreshadowing!), and a burial ground on the other. What could possibly go wrong? Well, lots.

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.

Directed by Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer, Pet Sematary stars Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz, Jeté Laurence, Hugo and Lucas Lavoie, and John Lithgow. The adaptation of the Stephen King novel opens April 5, 2019.
