Plot Synopsis: Louis Creed (Clarke), his wife Rachel (Seimetz) and their two children Gage (Lavoie) and Ellie (Laurence) move to a rural home where they are welcomed and enlightened about the eerie ‘Pet Sematary' located near their home. After the tragedy of their cat being killed by a truck, Louis resorts to burying it in the mysterious pet cemetery, which is definitely not as it seems, as it proves to the Creeds that sometimes, dead is better. -via IMDB 1st Impression: Before sharing my thoughts I want to say that this trailer spoils some of the plot established in the book and reveals a lot of the plot too. If you have not read the book or seen the original film proceed at your own risk. Onto my thoughts on the trailer!
The trailer definitely keeps the creep factor high but the plot changes make the film a lot different in my eyes. I like that John Lithgow is playing Jud Crandall which if you saw the original was played by the late Fred Gwynne. Lithgow is so underrated and I am glad to see him in more films. Overall the trailer was solid albeit a bit too spoilerish for my liking.
We'll see if the plot change hurt or help the film when it his theaters in April. What did you think of the trailer?
