It remains to be seen whether the Ramones song, "Pet Sematary", will be featured in the new film, as it was in the original - again, per King's stipulation, as the iconic NY punk rockers are one of his favorite bands.

The first look at Pet Sematary does what all solid trailers for book-to-movie adaptations should: establish the central premise of the story.

Pet Sematary - the Stephen King novel that will make you paranoid every time Tiddles looks at you amusing - is the latest of the horror master's stories to get a modern movie adaptation. The 1989 film was scary enough - don't know why they had to make a new one, but why not? She made a lasting impression on readers and audiences everywhere, and while she can't be spotted in this trailer, she will definitely appear in the Pet Sematary remake - and in a much better way.

King published Pet Sematary in 1983, and six years later, it was turned into a moderately terrifying movie (which I watched when I was way too young - I'm still wary of high-speed trucks), followed by a awful sequel. This is the second time eastern Canada has filled in for ME in a King movie in recent years; both the "IT" remake and its upcoming sequel were filmed in Port Hope, Ontario.

Here's the first trailer, and it looks like a good'un.

It truly is a great time to be a fan of Stephen King.

"Pet Sematary" is scheduled to open in April, 30 years to the month of the original's premiere.
