The first poster has been released for the upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s most terrifying novel Pet Sematary. The poster is a sinister one, focusing on the bones of animals buried in the ground of the cemetery.
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. PS. New trailer arrives very shortly.
