Welcome to Hill House

If you've been itching for a chilling, fresh, atmospheric horror series, then this is the place you want to be. There is something sinister living within the walls of the hundred-year-old compound, and the Crain families destiny will forever be defined by the time spent calling that castle home.

The first few episodes of any series are crafted to set the scene for what's to come. A chance to introduce central characters, the plot and the overarching themes. Here, we meet a seemingly close-knit family, led by straight-laced Hugh and vibrant Olivia, who struggle both in the past and present with their experiences about this house.

‘Pet Sematary’ Trailer: Creepy Kids in the Woods Prove ‘Sometimes Dead Is Better’ (Video)
The first trailer for “Pet Sematary” is just as creepy as you’d expect with kids in animal masks parading through an overgrown wood to the sound of a toy drum.

Based on one of Stephen King’s hit novels, “Pet Sematary” follows a doctor and his family who move next to a pet cemetery in the countryside, only to discover that the cemetery brings back anyone or anything buried on its grounds in a malicious, decrepit state.

Despite this, the doctor attempts to use it to resurrect his son after he’s killed in a car accident, to horrifying results.

As John Lithgow says in the trailer’s voiceover, “Sometimes dead is better.”

John Lithgow Joins Cast of New Pet Sematary Movie as Jud Crandall

Readers first learned that "sometimes dead is better" when Stephen King's Pet Sematary was published in 1983, and they'll soon learn that morbid lesson again with Paramount Pictures' upcoming reimagining of the heart-wrenching horror novel, which has now added another actor to its ranks.

EW reports that John Lithgow will play the role of Jud Crandall in the new film adaptation of Stephen King's Pet Sematary. Played by Fred Gwynne (The Munsters) in Mary Lambert's 1989 movie adaptation, Jud is a central character in the chilling story of Pet Sematary.

As fans of the book and previous movie know, Jud is the elderly next-door neighbor of Louis Creed and his family, who have just moved into their home in a somewhat secluded region of Maine. Jud is the one who introduces Louis to the ancient burial ground nearby where pets have been laid to rest... and come back from their freshly dug graves.
