Sometimes Dead is Better: Watch the Pet Sematary Trailer

By on October 10, 2018

The ground goes bad in the first trailer for the upcoming Pet Sematary remake.

Last week we got our first look at an evil Church straight from the grave, and now the first trailer for the upcoming Pet Sematary film is here.

Pet Sematary is, of course, based what is arguably Stephen King’s darkest novel about a forbidden burial ground that resurrects anything that gets buried there. But nothing comes back the same. As Jud Crandall says in the trailer, “sometimes dead is better.”

While John Lithgow is no Fred Gwynne, it looks like he’ll make a great Crandall.

I’m hoping for maybe a little less of the twisted spine of the sister Zelda from the original. I probably saw it when it came out on VHS when I was nine or ten, and Zelda’s wretched crooning as she called her sister’s name has haunted me ever since.

The arrival of this trailer is great timing, actually, because I’ve had the Ramones’ Pet Sematary, written for the original film, on near-constant repeat since the beginning of September when Halloween began here at Cult of Weird HQ.

“I don’t want to be buried in a pet sematary. I don’t want to live my life again.”

Yes, sometimes dead is better.

    Really doubt the remake could be anywhere near as good as the original pet semetary, they never are. It remake was terrible, it was so awful I couldn’t even finish the whole movie. No wonder for the younger generation real life is far more terrifying than any new horror movie. The scariest most horrifying story this holiday season? Donald Trump is president!!!!AHHHHH!! Im still hoping I’ll wake up from that nightmare….”I pwayed wif mommy, then jud came and I pwayed wif jud, we had a awful good time, now I wanna pway wif youuu “
