The latest trailer for Stephen King’s Pet Sematary is now online, with the new footage revealing a key change to the story, with the older Ellie being the child resurrected, rather than the young Gage. In an interview withEntertainment Weekly, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura explains why they made the change.“Gage is so young, you can’t really do that much with him,” he says. “So this way, we’re able to really get underneath our affected child. We’re able to get into the psychological horror of a child [coming back] because of her age.”
Pet Sematary hits theaters on April 5th. A day that’s shaping up to be quite a day for movie releases.
Pet Sematary is often considered one of Stephen King’s most terrifying novels, and the tone and tension in this first trailer for the all new reboot certainly conveys that well enough. Starring Jason Clarke and John Lithgow, the film sees a family move to a small town, only to discover the woods hold more secrets than they could ever know.
Pet Sematary hits theaters in April 2019, and should be yet another fantastic addition to the modern reboots of Stephen King novels.
