John Lithgow's Jud Crandall gets to say the classic line in the 2019 "Pet Sematary" trailer.

Fred Gwynne said it as Jud Crandall in the 1989 film.

The line is already on the poster. And it's featured in text during the trailer in case you didn't quite get it:

"Sometimes dead is better."

Stephen King's 1983 novel "Pet Sematary" has a new remake coming to theaters this spring. The first photos were shared last week. The first poster came out yesterday.

Today, we get the official trailer:

Here's Jud's speech in the original (spoiler warning):

Here's the film synopsis:

"Based on the seminal horror novel by Stephen King, 'Pet Sematary' follows Dr. Louis Creed (Jason Clarke), who, after relocating with his wife Rachel (Amy 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 (John Lithgow), setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences."

The fresh -- or just lightly dead -- horror film, directed by Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer, is currently scheduled to open in theaters on April 5.
