Pet Sematary is one of Stephen King’s most recognized novels, and the original movie adaptation is one of the most well-known based on his books (which is saying something, as there are over 30 such movies). As it is the nature of successful things to be regurgitated, a new Pet Sematary is heading our way in 2019. Today the first trailer was released.
When his youngest son suddenly dies, Dr. Louis Creed is understandably distraught — and desperate. When he hears of an ancient burial ground that’s rumored to reanimate the dead, he decides to bury his kid there in hopes of a resurrection. Unfortunately for him, that’s exactly what happens.
Pet Sematary stars John Lithgow, Jason Clarke and Amy Seimetz, and was directed by Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer. Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Steven Schneider and Mark Vahradian served as producers. See what new frights Paramount can dig up when Pet Sematary comes to theaters April 5, 2019.
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.
