The original movie, which came out in 1989, was famously shot in and around Bangor, per King's stipulations upon selling the rights to the book, with locations including Mount Hope Cemetery and the University of ME campus.
It looks true to the story we know and love of pet resurrection gone wrong, but with some intriguing new scenes, like the children's masked parade through the woods. "They feared it. Those woods belong to something else".
Some things might be better off dead, but for fans of Stephen King's 1983 novel - and the 1989 movie adaptation - will see that the remake of the horrifying tale isn't sticking to the saying.
In the film, a doctor named Louis Creed (Jason Clarke) and his family leave the bustle of Boston behind to take a job in the country where tragedy befalls them - their toddler is killed in a auto accident. "The ground is bad", he adds. It maybe just some insane folk tale. The Pet Sematary trailer comes a day after the makers dropped a terrifying poster. You've probably already gotten a start on your October screening parties as you prepare for Halloween but, much like every single year around this time, we're receiving news of some upcoming flicks that are sure to be included in your future fright nights.
Paramount Pictures unleashes Pet Sematary to theaters on April 5, 2019. The directors previously made cult horror Starry Eyes, which is a disturbing look at fame and Hollywood and a very good sign for this particular reboot.
Just like Church the cat, Stephen King's book "Pet Sematary" has been revived for another round of on-screen terror.
