Pet Sematary Remake Trailer


The Stephen King revival continues next year with Paramount’s upcoming remake of Pet Sematary, based on King’s 1983 novel about a family who move to a small town in Maine and discover a nearby cemetery with a disturbing secret. The movie was previously adapted by Mary Lambert in 1989 and although it was a decent box office hit at the time, it also leaves some room for improvement. The new version is directed by Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer (Starry Eyes) and it stars Jason Clarke, John Lithgow and Amy Seimetz. It is unclear if they have anything else planned to set it apart but either way this doesn’t seem quite as likely to repeat the same level of success as the recent It remake. Pet Sematary hits theatres on April 5th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.

    Looks like they added in some jump scares.

    The kids in the animal masks gives it a bump down on the scary scale for me, mainly because I just saw them do this in Castle Rock. Maybe it’s in the book, I don’t know

    The trailer is edited in a pretty cliche way.
