New 'Pet Sematary' movie trailer is out -- 'unfathomable evil with horrific consequences'

Pet Sematary Trailer: What’s Dead Should Stay Dead

He added that the upcoming film will be "one of the scariest Stephen King adaptations ever".

"Pet Sematary" is the second King remake taken on by Paramount, following the summer blockbuster "It", which became the highest grossing horror film of all time.

Pet Sematary - the Stephen King novel that will make you paranoid every time Tiddles looks at you amusing - is the latest of the horror master's stories to get a modern movie adaptation.

In voiceover, John Lithgow's Jud Crandall, the Creeds' eccentric neighbor, relays the mythos of the woods and the burial site within it.

He continues: "Kids used to dare each other to go into the woods at night". The plot follows a young family who, after moving to a rural home, discover they are living next to a creepy pet cemetery endowed with powers to reanimate whatever is buried on its grounds. They feared it. Those woods belong to something else ...

If you're a child of the 80's and 90's, chances are you spent a good portion of your childhood staying up late and watching the original Pet Sematary movie on basic cable. It maybe just some insane folk tale. Let us know if this trailer has you pumped or not!

If there's one thing that Stephen King's 1983 horror novel, Pet Sematary taught us, it's better to keep things dead. But as the wise old man ominously notes, "Sometimes dead is better". Based on the trailer above, this looks like it'll fit the bill nicely. 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.
