The trailer starts off with suggesting, "sometimes dead is better" before unfolding the events of the scariest tale from the author. That's true for horror movies, and especially so if it's a King property.

If you're a child of the 80's and 90's, chances are you spent a good portion of your childhood staying up late and watching the original Pet Sematary movie on basic cable. Are you excited to see the film when it arrives in United States theaters on April 5?

After we were blown away by Stephen King's IT, Hollywood is bringing another novel from the renowned writer's collection to life on the big screen.

Pet Sematary - the Stephen King novel that will make you paranoid every time Tiddles looks at you amusing - is the latest of the horror master's stories to get a modern movie adaptation.

Upon viewing the original Pet Sematary as an adult, I was struck by the bad special effect and the general cheesiness of the film.

When tragedy strikes, Louis turns to his unusual neighbor, Jud Crandall (John Lithgow), setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an "unfathomable evil with horrific consequences" - that's the official description from the promotional ad.

As for who will be portraying the kids, Jeté Laurence will play Ellie and three-year-old twins Hugo and Lucas Lavoie will be Gage, her little brother.

Amy Seimetz stars alongside Clarke and Lithgow in 2019's Pet Sematary, which is due out in April.

Watch the new trailer above.

Also heavily featured in the trailer is Church, the family's cat, which is the first creature to come back from the dead.
