If you're after an early Halloween scare, Paramount+ has released the first trailer for upcoming prequel movie Pet Sematary: Bloodlines, which you can watch above.

The new movie, starring David Duchovny and The Haunting of Hill House's Henry Thomas, is based on the "untold chapter" from Stephen King's classic novel Pet Sematary that explores just what happened in Ludlow, Maine.

Set in 1969, Pet Sematary: Bloodlines follows a young Jud Crandall (Jackson White) who has dreams of leaving his hometown of Ludlow, until he discovers sinister secrets that force him to confront a dark family history.

Jud and his childhood friends must fight an ancient evil which has gripped Ludlow since its founding and has the power to destroy everything.

The new movie is a prequel to the 2019 adaptation of Pet Sematary and if you're worried that it's just a cheap cashgrab, Stephen King has shared his approval for the new movie and how it fits in with his original story.

"In the book, this is the story Jud Crandall tells Louis Creed to try and dissuade him from using the Pet Sematary. The screenplay takes a few liberties, but it's a fine story. David Duchovny is excellent. The secret, as always, is caring about the characters," he wrote.

Pet Sematary: Bloodlines will be unleashed on Paramount+ in the US on October 6 and on Paramount+ in the UK and Ireland on October 7.

Directed by Lindsey Anderson Beer (who co-writes alongside Jeff Buhler), the horror movie also stars Forrest Goodluck, Jack Mulhern, Natalie Alyn Lind, Isabella Star LaBlanc, Samantha Mathis and Pam Grier.

The movie is the second Stephen King adaptation to be released this year following The Boogeyman, which arrived in cinemas in June and will be released on Disney+ in time for Halloween.
