The Disturbing Trailer For Stephen King's Pet Sematary Film Adaptation Is Set To Ruin Cute Animal Videos For The Internet Forever

Kill it with fire.

Stephen King’s 1983 horror novel Pet Sematary is being remade (again) into a film and if the first trailer is anything to go by, this is going to be a fun cocktail of disturbing and terrifying.

Yay!

The story follows a family who finds themselves in a little slice of hell on earth after burying a family member in a rogue pet cemetery that actually turns out to be a Native American burial ground. Classic mix up.

What follows is a whole lot of undead resurrections and creepy animal stuff that is enough to ruin cute animal content for the whole internet, forever.

Pet Sematary has been thrown between directors and stuck in development purgatory for a while, but now it’s ready to roll with Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kölsch directing the Paramount big screen picture.

It’s renowned as one of King’s most disturbing works ever, and since the success of the It film adaptation the hype around Pet Sematary is huge.

There’s no Australian release date yet but Pet Sematary is set for an April 2019 US release, so we should expect it to reach us down here some time in the next 5 to 10 years.

There Weren’t Playing When They Said The Sabrina The Teenage Witch Remake Is Dark So Watch This Trailer With The Lights On

I thought it was going to be Riverdale ‘dark’ not Suspiria dark.

Behold the first trailer for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the anticipated Netflix teen horror witchcraft show.

They warned us that this was not going to be along the happy-go-lucky witchcraft vibes of beloved 90s/00s show Sabrina the Teenage Witch, so much as a the horror aesthetic of the 2014 comic book reboot it’s actually based off.

And damn, when they said dark they meant dark.

Sabrina, played by Mad Men’Kiernan Shipka, is forced to choose between a normal teenage life and committing her soul to some kind of evil witch cult and it seems like a lot to handle on your sweet 16th birthday. 

The trailer lures you into a false sense of security with the teen sweethearts (Harvey!!!) flirting and what not, then before you know it there are undead creatures dragging Sabrina through the forest.

This is much more American Horror Story than Riverdale so prepare yourself for a seriously spooky Halloween.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina drops on Netflix on October 26, although I may be too weak to handle the glossy teen horror of this show.

At least after substantial stress, we finally have confirmation that Salem the sassy cat is in the remake. Win!

Jamie Lee Curtis Graduates From Damsel In Distress To Ruthless Hunter In The Trailer For The Halloween Reboot And She’s The Middle-Aged Heroine The World Needs

Four decades later and Jamie Lee is turning the tables on Michael Myers.

As far as female characters in horror films go, Jamie Lee Curtis’s role as ‘final girl’ Laurie Strode in the 1978 original Halloween is about as iconic as it gets.

In the 2018 sequel she is back with vengeance to take down not only the masked murderer Michael Myers, but also the damsel in distress narrative that plagues the horror genre.

The sequel picks up forty years after John Carpenter’s original, ignoring anything that went down in any subsequent franchise iterations and with director David Gordon Green at the helm.

Now 59 years old, Curtis returns as the older, fiercer Laurie Strode, who is ready and waiting to kill her escaped attacker.

“I’ve been preparing for this for a long time,” she says in the newly-released trailer. “He is a killer, but he will be killed tonight.”

This is a character we rarely get to see in horror films, or any genre for that matter.

Slasher movies have been infamously synonymous with young female characters that happen to be attacked while half-dressed, which is tiresome when you see the trope played out repeatedly for decades.

So having Jamie Lee Curtis return as an empowered middle-aged-woman who won’t let a man dominate her life with fear is epic. We need more heroes like this on screen.

“The first movie I was running more, and in this movie I’m hunting more,” says Curtis. “[You] watch this woman take back the narrative of her life.”

The sequel is set to hit theatres in the US on October 19 just in time for the Halloween season, so hopefully they keep that in mind and release it in Australia soon after.
