Stephen King on new Pet Sematary: This is a scary movie, be warned

Last week we shared with you guys the new trailer for STARRY EYES directing duo Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer's upcoming remake of Stephen King's PET SEMATARY. The trailer boasted some scary-ass moments and a big twist on the original novel and Mary Lambert's original film. But just how scary will this new version be? Well, if you ask the book's author himself Mr. Stephen King, it's going to be terrifying. 

King recently took to Twitter to let us all know:

This is a scary movie. Be warned.


You might consider skipping this movie if you have heart trouble.

Nice! We already know that King finds his novel PET SEMATARY to be one of - if not THE scariest - book he's ever written, but to know that King has seen this new version of the classic tale and thinks it needs a scare-warning seems almost too good to be true. Do you think this new version of Stephen King's PET SEMATARY looks scary? Let us know below!

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!
