Nostalgia is a powerful drug. I saw Mary Lambert’s 1989 big-screen interpretation of Stephen King‘s novel Pet Sematary as a child and it was one of the first films to truly horrify me. I will forever be haunted by the ghastly performance of Andrew Hubatsek as the spinal meningitis-stricten Zelda. And the achilles tendon scene made me wear high-top sneakers throughout middle school. Having recently rewatched it as an adult, it’s a very flawed film. The 2019 remake/reimagining directed by Kevin Kolsch & Dennis Widmyer (Starry Eyes) is a much better overall film, although one that will likely not leave the lasting impression of the original.
The first look at an all-new Pet Sematary dropped at SXSW last month, where it was met with rave reviews. Since then, Paramount has been pushing hard to make sure that you will see it by showing us some pretty terrifying trailers. Now, just before its release later this weekend, the studio has put out one final trailer, that should, hopefully, convince you to see what everyone has been talking about. Check out the newest trailer for Pet Sematary here below.
Nothing like kicking off your day with a hot cup of coffee and a horrific new trailer for Pet Sematary. The movie is the latest adaptation of the terrifying Stephen King tale, which was previously adapted into a movie back in 1989.
Paramount has released a new TV spot for Pet Sematary, the latest adaptation of Stephen King‘s novel of the same name.
The TV spot is extremely short at only 15 seconds, but it teases a character who will no doubt be of interest to fans of King’s book and the 1989 movie adaptation which stole sleep from so many: Zelda. The name alone causes me to start sweating nervously. I’ve never even played any of the video games because of it. OK so that’s all a bit of exaggeration, but that ’89 movie helped along greatly by Zelda did something very few movies have ever been able to do: terrify the ever-loving shit out of me.
