‘Pet Sematary’ trailer: Stephen King adaptation looks fur-raising

The original 1989 film adaptation of Stephen King's Pet Sematary is bona fide classic of horror cinema, tapping into many basic, primordial fears with merciless skill and featuring an unassailable assist from the Ramones, in the form of an original song of the same name.

In voiceover, John Lithgow's Jud Crandall, the Creeds' eccentric neighbor, relays the mythos of the woods and the burial site within it. "It may be just some insane folk tale, but there is something in those woods".

He continues: "Kids used to dare each other to go into the woods at night". 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's spooky stuff, guys, real spooky stuff.
