We’re still absorbing the terrifying glory that is the second trailer for Pet Sematary, arriving in theaters on April 5th. Released earlier this morning, it’s a lot to take in. Not only does it present several important plot motivators, it introduces some shocking departures from the source material. If you missed it this morning, check it out at the bottom of the article.

“This is a scary movie. Be warned.”
Stay tuned for Part 1 of my set-visit report this afternoon.

When tragedy strikes, Louis turns to his neighbor Jud Crandall, setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unspeakable evil with horrific consequences.
