PET SEMATARY: Check Out The Chilling New Trailer For The Upcoming Stephen King Adaptation

The second full trailer for Paramount Pictures' upcoming re-adaptation of one of Stephen King's most disturbing novels, Pet Sematary, is now online. Be warned, this one contains a fairly major SPOILER...

The second trailer for Pet Sematary is now online, and it gives us a terrifying new look at the upcoming Stephen King adaptation - along with a couple of big spoilers!

In a major alteration to the source material, it won't be Gage that's resurrected in the ancient burial ground of the title, but his big sister, Ellie! As the teaser progresses, we see the now malevolent child pay a visit to her grieving family and their neighbor Jud, who winds up on the wrong end of a scalpel.

In an interview with EW, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura explain why they made the change. “Gage is so young, you can’t really do that much with him,” he says. “So this way, we’re able to really get underneath our affected child. We’re able to get into the psychological horror of a child [coming back] because of her age.”

It remains to be seen how King purists react to this pretty major change to the original story. Check out the trailer below along with two new posters, and let us know what you think.







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.
