Pet Sematary trailer is downright terrifying

That is one angry undead kitty

Petrana Radulovic is an entertainment reporter specializing in animation, fandom culture, theme parks, Disney, and young adult fantasy franchises.

The newest trailer for Paramount’s Pet Sematary remake promises chills and one curmudgeonly reanimated cat.

Based on the Stephen King horror novel of the same name, Pet Sematary tells the story of a doctor who moves to a small Maine town with his family and discovers an ancient burial ground that brings dead things back to life. Pet Sematary was originally made into a movie in 1989 and while it had a less-than-successful follow-up, it gained a cult following.

Thirty years later, the undead machinations are back. In this new trailer, the characters delve deeper into the mythos of the mysterious Pet Sematary and the history of the town, before dead things start rising again. And it’s all set to the eerie thumps of drums. Spooky.

There are also more glimpses of the absolutely angry-looking undead cat. Hiss.

The new Pet Sematary stars Jason Clarke (First Man), Amy Seimetz (Stranger Things), and John Lithgow (Footloose, Shrek). It will premiere on April 5, 2019.
