The trailer for the new cinematic adaptation of Stephen King’s ‘Pet Sematary‘ already looked creepy and now the level of detail is only adding to that! The new teaser quickly shows off some of the graves made for the film as well as some of the background details which lived on the page that were added to the on-screen story.
The main takeaway here is that in the ‘Pet Sematary’ movie, there are many grave markers with names and sayings on them which have been there for quite some time looking both aged and weathered. Not only that, but they were made to look as if children had crafted them. Some of these graves were explicitly shown in the 1983 novel and now can be seen in the teaser and likely even more so in the final film when it is released.
Not all of those included will be from the book as co-directors Kevin Kölsch, and Dennis Widmyer added a grave for “Smucky the Cat — He Was Obediant.” While not in the trailer, this was the name of King’s daughter’s pet and will be included in the movie itself.

I love how true to the source material this adaptation appears to be trying to stay!
