Pet Sematary Trailer: What’s Dead Should Stay Dead

"It's Pet Sematary, this is not... a lot of Stephen King's work is, I love it, it's sentimental".

The trailer closes on one of the most famous lines from the entire Pet Sematary canon - "Sometimes dead is better" - and an image of the handmade "Pet Sematary" sign. "They knew the power of that place", he says as footage of young children walking across the forest floor, banging on tiny toy drums and wearing haunting animal masks, plays out on screen.

One of Stephen King's most notoriously disturbing novels is coming to cinemas next year in the form of Pet Sematary, a darker than dark meditation on life, death, and whatever the fuck there might be in between.

For who will be portarying these characters, it was announced that Jason Clarke and Amy Seimetz playing Louis and Rachel Creed. The latest spooky story to get the remake treatment is Mary Lambert's 1989 Pet Sematary, based on King's 1983 novel. That's true for horror movies, and especially so if it's a King property. "But another thing we're exploring is how you can't run". Quick cuts add up to a lingering spine-tingle in the second adaptation of Stephen King's horror classic. Watch the trailer below. The first trailer for the remake has been released, which stars Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty), Amy Seimetz (Stranger Things), and the always incredible John Lithgow as crotchety neighbor Jud Crandall.

Also heavily featured in the trailer is Church, the family's cat, which is the first creature to come back from the dead.
