Directed by Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer, the new movie focuses on a doctor (Jason Clarke) and his family as they move from Boston to ME and discover a mysterious burial ground. Paramount has revived the 1983 novel-turned-1989 movie into what it's hoping will be another slam dunk adaptation of Stephen King's work, following on from Warner Bros' box office-storming success with last year's It. This new adaptation sticks close to the story in the book, about a family that moves to a rural home where they discover a "Pet Sematary" nearby.

In voiceover, John Lithgow's Jud Crandall, the Creeds' eccentric neighbor, relays the mythos of the woods and the burial site within it. After the family cat is killed, they bury it in the Pet Sematary and then very weird things start to happen.

Both the Stephen King novel and the '80s silver screen adaptation paint Zelda as paper-thin with a sunken-in face and stringy hair, but in the film, she was actually played by male actor Andrew Hubatsek, who dressed in drag. Now it's being remade with Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer behind the camera, and a script from Jeff Buhler (The Midnight Meat Train), and based on the trailer above, the new Pet Sematary is going for A Quiet Place meets creepy kids meets evil cats (so, every cat) vibe. See what you think. As for Pet Sematary, it'll be ready to give you nightmares in April 2019. Based on the trailer above, this looks like it'll fit the bill nicely.
