New PET SEMATARY TV Spot Gives Us A Bone-Chilling First Glimpse Of Zelda

New PET SEMATARY TV Spot Gives Us A Bone-Chilling First Glimpse Of Zelda

This new TV spot for Paramount's re-adaptation of one of Stephen King's most disturbing novels, Pet Sematary, gives us a first look at Zelda - someone fans of the '89 movie will be all too familiar with...

For the most part, Mary Lambert’s 1989 adaptation of Pet Sematary never really managed to capture the terrifying tone of Stephen King's book... aside from the Zelda scenes, that is.

In the story, Rachel Creed is haunted by visions of her deceased sister Zelda, who suffered from spinal meningitis and appears to her as an emaciated exaggeration of her childhood fears. A whole generation of viewers (myself included) were traumatized by Zelda, and she's back to stalk our nightmares.  

In the new film, this character will be played by Alyssa Brooke Levine, and you can get your first (very) brief look at her in the process of scaring her poor sister half to death in the new TV spot below.



Pet Sematary is set for release on April 5. Check out some previously released stills below, along with some character and plot details.

Jud And Ellie



The first image features Jud Crandall (John Lithgow) and little Ellie Creed (Jeté Laurence).

In this take on the story, Ellie is the first to encounter Jud when she inadvertently stumbles upon the titular animal graveyard, completely unaware that there's another, much more sinister cemetery just beyond it.

No Turning Back



Jud and Louis (Jason Clarke) go for a little stroll. Can you guess what's in the bag?

These two become fast friends, but the grieving father soon regrets taking the advice of his lonely old neighbor.

The Creed Family



A happier moment for Ellie, mom Rachel (Amy Seimetz) and Gage (played by twins Hugo and Lucas Lavoie) - though Louis looks like something is on his mind.

The Pet Cemetery



The graveyard of the title is a peaceful place where people bring their deceased pets to lay them to rest, but beyond it is an ancient Mi’kmaq burial ground where things that are gone can sometimes come back.

Church



Bad kitty!

Winston Churchill is Ellie's pet cat, and when he falls victim to the busy motorway in front of The Creed's house, Louis doesn't see the harm in burying him in the dark place Jud tells him about. That's a decision he soon regrets.

Rachel And Gage



Fans of the book and the original movie will recall one of the most terrifying aspects was Rachel's flashback/vision of her sister Zelda, who will also be a part of this new adaptation.

It’s more accurate to the book, I’ll just say that,” co-director Dennis Widmyer reveals. “In the original movie, it’s a 21-year-old guy in drag playing it, and in the book, as you recall, it’s a 10-year-old girl.”

Behind-The-Scenes



Finally, we have a BTS shot of Clarke and Lithgow alongside the film's directors Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kölsch, who are best known for the 2014 Hollywood horror-satire Starry Eyes.
