Two of the most anticipated horror films of 2019 happen to be–surprise–Stephen King film adaptations!
The first of course is the next chapter of IT and the second is Pet Sematary.
We are going to have to wait on a trailer for the former, but the latter is giving fans its second trailer today and some great news for SXSW’s Midnighters attendees about its premiere.
“Programming the SXSW Midnighters section is always a favorite part of my job, and this year was no exception,” said Jarod Neece, SXSW Senior Film Programmer. “We get to peek into the collective consciousness of the world of genre filmmakers working today. This year’s selections are a mix of horror, thriller, sci-fi and fantasy with a good dose of feral children, haunted houses, extraterrestrial creatures and the undead to creep out SXSW audiences late into the night. Genre films can be found throughout the entire SXSW program, from Jordan Peele’s Us on Opening Night to our Closing Night Film, Pet Sematary!”
The rest of us who can’t afford to go to SXSW will have to get by on this latest trailer and wait until the film opens nationwide on April 5, 2019.
Pet Sematary stars Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz, Jeté Laurence, Hugo Lavoie, Lucas Lavoie and John Lithgow.
And is directed by Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer.
