The remake of 80s horror classic Pet Sematary looks like it’ll be putting a fresh spin on its story of death, resurrection and killer kids. The first trailer for the movie was revealed just a few weeks ago and already looks quite different from the 1989 film and original Stephen King novel, especially the eerie scenes of children wearing animal masks.
While we’re going to have to wait until next year to learn more about these strange kids, for now, the film’s official Facebook page has released a “3D photo” of one of their scenes. Mouse over the image to get the 3D experience!
In this new film, John Lithgow replaces the late Fred Gwynne as suspicious neighbour Jud Crandall. Twins Hugo and Lucas Lavoie play creepy tot Gage Creed, with Jeté Laurence in the role of his older sister Ellie Creed. Jason Clarke (Winchester) and Amy Seimetz (Alien: Covenant) play parents Louis and Rachel Creed. Young actress Alyssa Brooke Levine will play the new Zelda, with Obssa Ahmed in the role of Victor Pascow.
The synopsis reads:
“Based on the novel by Stephen King, Pet Sematary follows Dr. Louis Creed, who, after relocating with his wife Rachel and their two young children from Boston to rural Maine, discovers a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near the family’s new home. When tragedy strikes, Louis turns to his unusual neighbour, Jud Crandall, setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences.”
The film will be directed by Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer, with a script adapted by Jeff Buhler and David Kajganich.
Pet Sematary returns on April 5th 2019.
