Mark Your Diaries: A Bloodcurdling Trailer For Stephen King's 'Pet Sematary' Has Dropped

After the first cinematic adaptation hitting the big screens back in 1989, Stephen King's chilling horror fiction novel is recreated once again - but with a grisly new twist...

'Sometimes dead is better' - the eerie catchphrase of the 2019 adaptation of renowned author, Stephen King's novel, Pet Sematary. After Paramount Pictures has dropped two spine-chilling trailers, we've gotten a sneak-peak of the latest rendition of the horror fiction novel. With a mix of supernatural entities combined with creepy critters and murderous zombie-children, it seems to tick the boxes when it comes to achieving a sufficient scare-factor.

The blood-curdling tale follows the story of a doctor, Louis Creed (Jason Clarke), his wife, Rachel (Amy Seimetz) and their two children who move to the rural state of Maine. Before long, the newbie family discover a seemingly-ordinary cemetery where various pets have been buried throughout many years. The chilling twist? If the cemetery in itself isn't creepy enough, then the fact that it rests upon a cursed ancient burial ground should add a little bit of spice. After various perilous tragedies invoked an impulsive mindset in the midst of deperation - we'll just say that things didn't seem quite the same, unleashing a chain full of unsettling terror.

Directed by pair who previously collaborated for Starry Eyes , Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer have also taken a slightly different route with regard to some of the main features of the plot, bringing a sense of excitement and anticipation regarding a fresh take on one of King's most renowned horror tales.

If you're an avid horror lover, you better be grabbing a like-minded pal because the supernatural horror will be hitting the big screen in April, 2019!
