Quick cuts add up to a lingering spine-tingle in the second adaptation of Stephen King's horror classic. The catch: they come back evil.

The footage present here is low on jump scares but very high on atmospheric dread, particularly when elderly neighbor Jud Crandall (John Lithgow) begins to talk about how "those woods belong to something else". The plot follows a young family who, after moving to a rural home, discover they are living next to a creepy pet cemetery endowed with powers to reanimate whatever is buried on its grounds.

"It may be just some insane folk tale, but there is something in those woods, something that brings things back", Lithgow's character says in the trailer. We also see shots a scalpel, an eerie spiral carved into a tree, and blood smeared across a auto window and a door while Jud adds, "There is something up in those woods, something that brings things back".

Just like Church the cat, Stephen King's book "Pet Sematary" has been revived for another round of on-screen terror. She made a lasting impression on readers and audiences everywhere, and while she can't be spotted in this trailer, she will definitely appear in the Pet Sematary remake - and in a much better way. The film was be directed by Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch (Starry Eyes) from a script by Jeff Buhler.
