Stephen King has been having a phenomenal film resurgence. It's true that the literary giants works haven't actually disappeared from the moving picture medium at all, but the television adaptations of his work have been... well, frankly, rubbish. Under The Dome was a total stinker, and the less said about the mess that was the reimagining of The Mist, the better.
However, film adaptations of his work have been on the upward trend since Frank Darabont's divisive take on The Mist. Gerald's Game has received some great reviews and It: Chapter 1 was extraordinarily good.
Pet Sematary is the latest King novel to be adapted for the big screen and so far, the trailers have looked very positive. This isn't the first time that Pet Sematary has been adapted for the big screen. King's 1983 novel about a plot of land that could bring the dead back, and the nightmare that it inflicts on a grieving family, was adapted for the big screen in 1989 and the movie has garnered quite a cult following in the years since. The movie received a sequel in 1992, Pet Sematary 2, which was actually quite a lot of fun.
The latest adaptation keeps the bulk of the story, but introduces enough changes to keep it fresh for both fans of the book and the original movie. The latest trailer is out and there's a great sense of horrific atmosphere at play in it. The latest adaptation stars the ever fantastic John Lithgow, Jason Clarke and Amy Seimetz. The movie will release on the 5th of April, 2019.
You can check out the trailer below. Be warned though, as is unfortunately usual with trailers these days, it contains spoilers and may just show too much for those wanting to go in fresh.
