With the new film of Stephen King’s PET SEMATARY getting closer to release, Paramount Pictures has released an eerie new poster and a trailer that reveals a significant change from the source; see them after the jump.

Paramount releases PET SEMATARY April 5. Directed by STARRY EYES’ Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer from a script by Jeff Buhler (THE PRODIGY), it stars Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz, John Lithgow, Jeté Laurence and Hugo and Lucas Lavoie. The synopsis: PET SEMATARY follows Dr. Louis Creed [Clarke], who, after relocating with his wife Rachel [Seimetz] and their two young children from Boston to rural Maine, discovers a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near the family’s new home. When tragedy strikes, Louis turns to his unusual neighbor, Jud Crandall [Lithgow], setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences.”
