Watch the chilling first trailer for Stephen King’s Pet Sematary movie

Creepy kids in the woods doing some rituals, cool

The first trailer for Pet Sematary is here, and it looks absolutely terrifying. The resurrected Stephen King novel from 1983 is the second cinematic adaptation, following the 1989 movie.

The new Pet Sematary, directed by Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer, sees a family move out of the city to a large house in the country. Following the death and burial of their son in the nearby woods after he dies in a tragic car accident, they discover he has returned, resurrected and demonic.

In the trailer, the family’s neighbour tells them about the creep forest: “Kids used to dare each other to go into the woods at night,” and we see a chilling contage of children in animal masks, wheeling dead pets into the ‘pet sematary’ for burial. “They knew the power of that place. They feared it, those woods belong to something else.” 

The cemetery it seems, has the power to bring anything buried there back to life. “Sometimes dead is better,” he adds.

Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz and John Lithgow star in the movie, set to hit cinemas in April 2019. In recent times, we’ve seen several adaptions of horror author Stephen King’s work on both the big and small screen – IT, the Castle Rock TV series binding several of the book narratives together, Netflix’s The Mist and Doctor Sleep.
