Stephen King's 'Pet Sematary' Gets First Full Trailer And It Looks Terrifying

I hope you like being scared shitless because the trailer for the new adaptation of Stephen King's Pet Sematary is here and its pretty bloody creepy.

If you've not read the book - or seen the previous movie - Pet Sematary centres on doctor Louis Creed (Jason Clarke) who moves to Maine with his wife Rachel (Amy Seimetz) and their two kids. Once there he finds a creepy burial ground in the woods near to his home, which is just classic bad luck, isn't it?

When he and his family are struck by a sudden tragedy, our man Dr Creed turns to his weird neighbour Jud Crandall (played by John Lithgow), which sets in motion a horrifying chain of events.


If you're unfamiliar with the story and you love being scared, then you're in for a treat, because it's a genuinely horrifying tale and this new re-telling looks amazing.

The new movie is directed by Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer, who have previously worked together on Starry Eyes, and has a screenplay by Jeff Buhler, who previously worked on the screenplay for the wonderfully titled slasher flick The Midnight Meat Train, which stared Vinnie Jones.

Featuring kids in creepy animal masks, a demonic-looking cat and a creepy neighbour, the trailer has already got horror fans pretty excited:

The movie is the latest Stephen King novel to get itself a brand-new adaption, following the huge success of It, which smashed all sorts of records when it was released last autumn.

Pennywise is due to get his second airing next year as a sequel to the smash is in the works.

Meanwhile Pet Sematary is set to hit cinemas in April 2019, so it looks like next year is shaping up to be a good one for horror fans.
