Paramount Pictures has released the final trailer for the upcoming Stephen King adaptation PET SEMATARY. Make sure you check out the trailer below.
After a successful debut at SXSW, which you can check out Shannon’s review here, the film is finally premiering to the general public this week!
Shannon discussed her thoughts on the new adaptation, more specifically how haters need to watch it before casting stones:
“Kölsch and Widmyer have created something special with their adaptation and it deserves to be seen before making judgments. The film’s special effects follow in the footstep of its predecessor in that it is mainly done with practical effects with the incorporation of some beautifully haunting and surreal imagery. As mentioned earlier, the performances really drive home the themes of the story as they bring a lot of the heart and anguish from the book’s description onto the screen. Add all of that in with a tightly woven story and a third act that will leave you stunned and disturbed, it’s no wonder why it’s received so much praise since it’s World Premiere.”
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.
