The first official photos from the Pet Sematary remake are here, and oh boy, this movie looks creepy.
For those of you who haven't read Stephen King's 1983 horror novel upon which the film is based, it follows Louis Creed (Jason Clarke), who moves into a sprawling rural home with his wife Rachel (Amy Seimetz) and their two young children. Not long after they arrive, their neighbor (John Lithgow) informs them about the eerie pet cemetery located in the woods bordering their home, which isn't your average burial place for beloved cats and dogs. When tragedy strikes, the family pushes the powers of the cemetery to its extreme.
Variety reported back in October 2017 that Paramount would be moving forward with the reboot of the 1989 film, with directors Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer at the helm. The duo previously directed the gory, moody indie horror movie Starry Eyes in 2014, so capturing the relentlessly creepy vibe of Pet Sematary should be right up their alley. After the raging success of It last year, we have high hopes for Hollywood's next stab at adapting a tale from King's terrifying body of work.
Pet Sematary is scheduled for release on April 5, 2019, so in the meantime, look through all the chilling photos from the film ahead, and then check out the brand new trailer!
