“Sometimes dead is better,” warns John Lithgow in his delivery of the classic Pet Sematary tagline in the new trailer for Paramount Pictures’ forthcoming remake of the 1989 film.
Starring Lithgow, Jason Clarke and Amy Seimetz, the film’s latest trailer showcases the extremes that come with the grief of loss, with the horrifying overlay that, ultimately, “they don’t come back the same.”
The screenplay was adapted from the Stephen King novel of the same name by Jeff Buhler and David Kajganich, and the film directed by Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer.
Shield your pets’ eyes (and maybe your own), and check out the new trailer below—be warned, though, that it spoils the film’s major change to King’s original story. You can see the film’s latest poster further down.
