“Sometimes dead is better.”
On Wednesday Paramount Pictures dropped the creepy first trailer for its take on the Stephen King classic novel Pet Sematary, and we think fans of both the original book and film are going to love this first look.
Based on the seminal horror novel by Stephen King, Pet Sematary follows Dr. Louis Creed (Jason Clarke), who, after relocating with his wife Rachel (Amy Seimetz) 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 neighbor, Jud Crandall (John Lithgow), setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences.
Check out the first trailer for Pet Sematary below:

The film will rise into theaters on April 5, 2019.
