WATCH: Second trailer and two cool posters drop for Pet Sematary

February 7th, 2019 by Marc Comments

A pretty spooky new trailer and two posters (above and below) for Stephen King’s Pet Sematary have arrived and it looks like it’s going to deliver in the scares territory.

However, we’re a little baffled because – as big fans of King’s book and the original movie – there’s a pretty big plot change in there regarding what happens and to who.

That said, this looks like it’s going down the right road in so far as an adaptation goes but we just hope that, like the Dark Tower last year, changes aren’t being made for any other reason than the moving the story forward.

Based on the seminal horror novel by Stephen King, Pet Sematary follows Dr. Louis Creed (Jason Clarke), who, after relocating with his wife Rachel (Amy Seimetz) and their two young children from Boston to rural Maine, discovers a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near the family’s new home. When tragedy strikes, Louis turns to his unusual neighbor, Jud Crandall (John Lithgow), setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences.

DIRECTED BY: Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer

BASED ON THE NOVEL BY: Stephen King

STARRING: Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz, Jeté Laurence, Hugo & Lucas Lavoie and John Lithgow

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
