Pet Sematary premieres at SXSW - new trailer hits tomorrow

The first trailer for STARRY EYES directing duo Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer's upcoming remake of Stephen King's PET SEMATARY was released earlier this year and it blew us all away. And today we have word via Paramount Pictures themselves over on YouTube that the new trailer is all set to hit tomorrow at EXACTLY 9 am. You can find the placeholder trailer below, which is something I didn't even know YouTube did. But I love it!

Not only that but today we have word that the remake will be hosting its World Premiere as the closing night film of this year's SXSW Film Festival. Pretty cool, huh? Especially considering that Jordan Peele's US will be the festival's opening night movie. Bring on the horror, SXSW!

Directed by Kolsch and Widmyer, PET SEMATARY stars Jason Clarke as Louis Creed, Amy Seimetz as Rachel Creed, Hugo and Lucas Lavoie as Gage Creed, Jeté Laurence as Ellie Creed, Obssa Ahmed as Victor Pascow, Alyssa Brooke Levine as Zelda, and Lithgow as Jud. 

Dr. Louis Creed, who, after relocating with his wife Rachel (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, setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences.

King wrote the screenplay adaptation for the '89 film himself. This time the script was written by Jeff Buhler, who previously wrote the Clive Barker adaptation THE MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN, developed the George R.R. Martin story Nightflyers into a television series, and wrote a remake of JACOB'S LADDER that has yet to be released. We'll let you know once we hear more on the remake but until then let us know what you think thus far below!
