New ‘Pet Sematary’ Trailer Unveils More Creeeepy Stephen King Horror

Paramount Pictures

Take a look at the new trailer released for upcoming horror film Pet Sematary, an adaptation of Stephen King’s 1983 novel of the same name.

The first trailer showcased some creepy-looking scenes and a feel of the unsettling tone, but we get plot this time around, and a solid amount of it. The Creed family are in for a seriously horrifying time after they move to a new home located near a mysterious burial ground. As the trailer unveils, the young daughter dies, leading to a very bad decision by the father, Dr. Louis Creed (Aussie actor Jason Clarke). “Hug your daughter.”

It could be a strong film for horror hounds, and another potential King-adaptation hit following 2017‘s It. Creepy kids and creepy cats, plus Clarke going all out and John Lithgow (even if we now know a big moment for his character). Bring it.

Also starring Amy Seimetz, Pet Sematary will be hitting Aussie cinemas on April 4 and US cinemas on April 5.

Official synopsis for Pet Sematary:

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.
