Stephen King is definitely one of the most iconic writers of all time. His ability to write stories that creep us out to our very core is honestly unparalleled.
From Carrie to It, King has been freaking us all out for decades now, and finally one of his most famous stories is getting remade and the trailer has us all shaking in our boots.
Pet Sematary was written in 1983, and was turned into a movie in 1989. The movie was released to mixed reviews, but it’s one of those horror movies that while it may not be considered very good, everyone still watches it.
Sure, it’s got some cliché moments, and maybe some critics said there was a “lack of credibility or motivation,” but now it’s getting another chance to make it right.
A new version of the spooky movie is set to be released on April 5th, 2019, and now we’ve gotten our first look at it.
The tag line of the movie is “Sometimes dead is better,” and it seems like they are going to go out of their way to make sure we know that.
We all remember the story, which seems to be basically the same as the original. A family moves out to the country, and they hear rumors of an ancient burial grounds that can bring back to life anything that is buried there.
When the son is hit by a car, the father buries him, bringing him back to life, except now he’s not exactly what he once was. The boy has turned demonic, and they don’t know what to do.
John Lithgow plays the neighbor of the family, Jud Crandall, and he’s been around town for a long time so he knows all about the rumors and is the one to tell them.
“There was a myth. Kids used to dare each other to go into the woods at night. They knew the power of that place. They feared it. Those woods belong to something else. The ground is bad. Maybe it’s just some crazy folktale, but there is something in the woods. Something that brings things back. Sometimes dead is better.”
