This version comes from the directing duo behind 2014's Starry Eyes, Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer. Paramount has revived the 1983 novel-turned-1989 movie into what it's hoping will be another slam dunk adaptation of Stephen King's work, following on from Warner Bros' box office-storming success with last year's It.

The trailer reveals Dr Louis Creed, played by Jason Clarke, and his family relocating from Boston to rural Maine.

The doctor turns to his neighbour Judd Crandall (John Lithgow) after a sudden tragedy. "Kids used to dare each other to go into the woods at night".

Microsoft has broken Xbox's into their individual components and created a single server "blade" that can host multiple consoles. AMD works closely with both Microsoft and Sony on their respective Xbox One and Playstation consoles.

"It may just be a insane folk tale", Jud says over clips of a funeral parade moving through the woods, an actual funeral taking place, Gage banging on a window, Dr. Creed waking up with dirt covering his feet, and a man in a hospital bed grabbing at Dr. Creed. After the family cat is killed, they bury it in the Pet Sematary and then very weird things start to happen. We get kids performing pet funerals in creepy animal masks, fog lining the ground at the night, a toy drum that just won't stop beating, and very brief glimpses of the violence to come that are nearly more disturbing than actually watching the death scenes. Stephen King's previous novel adaptation, IT, was a massive success when it released past year. The first trailer has now been released.

See just how creepy the Pet Sematary remake really is when the film opens in theaters on April 5, 2019.
