Pet Sematary is one of many of Stephen King’s iconic novels. Although the story was previously adapted in 1989, it’s being reimagined for another modern day adaptation. And despite several major changes from the source material, it still focuses on the grief and fragile sanity behind Louis Creed – this time played by actor Jason Clarke.
We’ve been given some new photos – as well as a very creepy new TV spot that you can check out below:
Now Games Radar (via Total Film) has shared two new stills featuring Louis Creed, and they’re full of crisp, eerie atmosphere.

“I read [the novel] in my early twenties,” Clarke told Total Film. “Nobody does it better than King. The descriptions of what’s going on are just too much at times – you have to put the book down. I was really fucking disturbed.”
Amy Seimetz will play Louis Creed’s wife, Rachel Creed. Jeté Laurence is their daughter Ellie. Hugo Lavoie and Lucas Lavoie are the twins behind their toddler son Gage. John Lithgow will play the elderly Jud Crandall, while Obssa Ahmed and Alyssa Brooke play the haunting Victor Pascow and Zelda, respectively.
In the film…
“Based on the novel by Stephen King, Pet Sematary follows Dr. Louis Creed, who, after relocating with his wife Rachel 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, setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences.”
Pet Sematary comes to theaters on April 5, 2019.
