Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kölsch’s Pet Sematary remake won’t be released until April of 2019, but Paramount shared a first look at the poster for the upcoming horror movie yesterday, featuring the iconic line “sometimes dead is better,” and today the first official trailer was released.
Based on Stephen King‘s 1983 novel of the same name, Pet Sematary centers around Luis Creed, his wife Rachel, their two children Gage and Ellie and their move from Chicago to a small farmhouse in Maine. Shortly after Creed and his family arrive, the family cat is killed by a truck, so they bury Church in a nearby pet cemetery which is said to bring the dead back to life. Creed and his family soon learn that sometimes dead is better!
Check out the new Pet Sematary poster below.
The film stars Jason Clarke as Louis Creed, John Lithgow as Jud Crandall, Amy Seimetz as Rachel Creed, and Jete Laurence as Ellie Creed.

The Best Horror Movies Based On Stephen King Books
11. Cujo (1983)
Admit it, you’ve never looked at a St. Bernard the same way after seeing this 1983 horror classic. Based on the novel of the same name published by Stephen King in 1981, Cujo is about a big friendly dog that goes on a pretty terrifying killing spree after it is bitten on the nose by a bat and contracts rabies. After laying waste to many people in a small town, the dog ends up focused on a mother (actress Dee Wallace) and her young son (Danny Pintauro) who end up stuck in a car after it breaks down and have to try and survive the increasingly dangerous rabid dog outside who will kill them if they step outside. While not the most inventive or imaginative of King’s works, Cujo is still an exciting and scary movie. It is amazing how the filmmakers got the dog to perform the way it does. And the blood and slime that is coating the dog by the end of the movie is both gross and convincing.
