The new adaptation has been directed by Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer.
"To make a movie that is going to scare teenagers because it's supernatural and there are classic characters like Pascow and Zelda. But also something that will scare parents, because of what happens. 'Pet Sematary' has always really worked on both those levels," Kolsch said in a statement.
Widmyer said "Pet Sematary" is the "most terrifying novel" King has ever written. He revealed that after reading the novel, he got "spooked" by his cat.
"There was something different about 'Pet Sematary'. I had a very indelible reaction to it. It stood out. It just felt more dangerous than his other books. And it was very autobiographical, you know?" he added.
