In this creepy 1989 horror pic based on Stephen King's novel, a new family named the Creeds are about to get to know the word Death! This is a very scary movie; filled with terror and enough gore to please anybody, I'm still impressed and scared about this movie even to this day.
Lewis Creed(Dale Midkiff)learns about a Indian burial ground by a elderly neighbor, Fred Gwynne, after his family cat dies. Little does he know that the burial ground is actually "where the dead rise." The cat does come back but has a side effect. It's EVIL! Later during a picnic, Lewis' toddler son Cage is accidently runed over by a semi-truck. Lewis makes the sickest decision by burying his son... you know where! Then all hell ensues!
That's not the only scary thing about this film. There are some other demented scenes including the strange death of man with red shorts who seems to haunt, or help, Lewis and the Creeds. The wife also has a weird past with her sick sister whose body seems twist and turn like a pretzel! I don't mean to spoil, but nearly every Creed dies in the movie(Daughter lives) and Herman Munster, er, Fred Gwynne dies in the hands of Cage, the little Zombie boy. It's just a sick and complexed film. It's great. "Pet Sematary 2" is not so great.
