New Stephen King Pet Sematary trailer claws at your deepest fears

That's the tagline for the new version of Stephen King's Pet Sematary, and it turns out the directors were signaling something all along about this adaptation of the 1983 novel.

For the uninitiated, Pet Sematary sees the Creed family relocate from Boston to rural ME, where they discover a mysterious burial ground near their house.

In this version of Pet Sematary, much as in the original 1983 film, a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods "unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences". For everyone else, though, please enjoy the creepy kids in animal masks and one terrifying cat! Except, this isn't just any burial ground.

Pet Sematary crawls out of the grave on April 5th. The cemetery is rumored to be cursed by some otherworldly influence. While some fans appreciate the new approach, others were disappointed that we wouldn't see a murderous toddler, in addition to some fans growing disappointed that this narrative twist was confirmed in the trailer instead of revealed in the film itself.

This is where it gets tricky: In King's original story, Gage, Creed's two-year-old son, is run over by a speeding truck. The directors of the upcoming remake decided to have Ellie die instead, since her character leave more room for creativity in the living and undead form, Entertainment Weekly reported.

Due to the major plot spoiler above, we'll leave it there. Sometimes dead (and going into a horror movie totally blind) is better.
