A Chilling New Pet Sematary Clip Has Been Unearthed

This preview from the upcoming horror remake will make you really believe that dead is better.

Hype has been steadily building over the past couple of weeks for the upcoming remake of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary, with recent footage making this film look as tense and creepy as ever. The remake is said to be a return to the roots of true horror, where fear and dread overwhelmed moviegoers far more than jump scares ever could. This haunting new preview that surfaced from Bloody Disgusting earlier today only seems to reaffirm that fact.

If you have watched the film’s second trailer or any of the recent TV spots, you might already be aware of the remake’s one major departure from the novel and original film. However, if you wish to go in totally fresh, we would advise you skip on this preview and turn back now.

Otherwise, the above one-minute clip shows a scene from the remake in which Louis reintroduces his reanimated daughter, Ellie, to his wife. The shock and tension is sky-high as Rachel shares a tearful hug with someone who should not be there and it quickly becomes apparent that something is not quite right with her as the scene comes to a close. Give it a watch above and stay tuned for all the latest on the remake ahead of its April 5th release date.
