See Terrifying Trailer for New 'Pet Sematary' Movie Adaptation

It was previously brought to the big screen in 1988, leading to a sequel in 1992.

While a number of horror pictures are hitting theaters and streaming services alike throughout October, Stephen King fans have a new adaptation to look forward to in the coming months. Are you excited to see the film when it arrives in U.S. theaters on April 5?

Upon viewing the original Pet Sematary as an adult, I was struck by the bad special effect and the general cheesiness of the film.

Directed by Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kölsch, Pet Sematary is based upon Stephen King's 1983 horror novel of the same name and follows 20 years after filmmaker Mary Lambert released the first Pet Sematary movie in 1989. As much as we love Mary Lambert's 1989 iteration of Stephen King's bestselling novel, the upcoming film directed by Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer (Starry Eyes) from a script penned by David Kajganich and Jeff Buhler has an nearly unbearably creepy tone and aesthetic. Their daughter Ellie (Jeté Laurence) is as drawn to the weird, circular array of pet graves behind her house just as much as toddler Gage (Hugo and Lucas Lavoie) is enchanted by the huge Orinco oil tankers that roar up and down their road. When tragedy strikes, Louis turns to his unusual neighbor, Jud Crandall, setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences.

While the synopsis is a thing of nightmares, the translation of the film to an actual trailer is pretty horrifying.

Basically, just watch the trailer. The first trailer has now been released. Pet Sematary is scheduled to open in theaters on April 5, 2019.
