The first trailer has arrived for the remake of Pet Sematary, based on the classic horror novel by Stephen King.

The new version comes almost 20 years after the original 1989 movie, which has become something of a cult classic. Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer direct from a screenplay by Jeff Buhler.

The film stars Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz and John Lithgow. Watch the creepy trailer below:

Pet Sematary follows Dr. Louis Creed (Clarke), who, after relocating with his wife Rachel (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 neighbour, Jud Crandall (Lithgow), setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences.

Following the success of the IT remake last year, there’s a real appetite for adaptations of Stephen King’s work again so expectations are pretty high for Pet Sematary. The original spawned a poorly received sequel, Pet Sematary Two, in 1992 starring Edward Furlong, Anthony Edwards and Clancy Brown.

Alongside the trailer a poster has been revealed, which shows a makeshift cross with the film’s title scrawled across. It features the tag line ‘Sometimes dead is better’. Take a look at the newly-released one-sheet poster below:
