An alternative UK poster has been revealed for Pet Sematary and it’s not quite as dark as the previous poster we’ve seen. This one hones in on a singular gravestone, instead of focusing on what’s buried below. There is something undoubtedly ominous about the spider web-ridden cross and the chains that cover it, but I prefer the original one.
The new re-telling will be directed by Starry Eyes’ Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch, from a script written by David Kajganich and Jeff Buhler (Midnight Meat Train).
Described by Stephen King as “the most frightening book I’ve ever written,” his 1983 novel Pet Sematary tells the tale of Louis and Rachel Creed, who discover the re-animating properties of an Indian burial ground behind their new house. Louis decides to bring back their daughter Ellie’s cat after it is killed on the road, but when a horrible tragedy strikes the family, they find out that “sometimes, dead is better.”
Paramount will release Pet Sematary on 5th April 2019.
