Audiences will no doubt emphatically agree that, yes, "sometimes dead is better," after watching the newly released second trailer for the new adaptation of Pet Sematary.
Based on Stephen King's 1983 horror novel, the film by directors Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer follows the Creed family from Boston to rural Maine, where, instead of a peaceful new life in a seemingly idyllic setting, they find anguish and untold evil.
The Creeds probably would've been better off remaining in Boston or, at least heeding the warnings of quirky neighbor Jud Crandall (John Lithgow).
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.
