All The Stephen King Trademarks That Make 'Pet Sematary' A Must-Watch

Many Stephen King novels are marked by extremely memorable tropes, and the 2019 Pet Sematary adaptation - with a release date of April 5, 2019 - is no exception. In fact, the 2019 cinematic version of the 1983 novel has an outstanding amount of Stephen King trademarks. For example, there's almost always a child character who endures ceaseless bloodshed, gore, and violence; in many of the works, a child is usually the one who causes must of the destruction. 

The Paramount version of Pet Sematary makes these horror-movie hallmarks feel fresh, turning classic jump scares into relentless, abject horror.
