For most families, moving is a new beginning. But for the Creeds, it could be the beginning of the end. Because they're just moved in next door to a place that children built with broken dreams, the Pet Sematary. It's a tiny patch of land that hides a mysterious Indian burial ground with the powers of resurrection. Master of the Macabre, Stephen King, will take you and the Creeds to hell and back. (But the Creeds don't have return tickets.) Your tour guide is kindly old Judd Crandall (Fred Gwynne), the neighborhood nice guy who knows the secrets of life, but has seen enough to firmly believe that "sometimes dead is better."

PET SEMATARY tells the story of the Creeds, a young nuclear family who has moved from the Midwest to a small college town in Maine. They take up residence in a old country house a few miles outside the town, and it isn't long before they become friendly with their new neighbor, a bucolic but agreeable old coot named Jud who lives across the street. Jud quickly alerts them to the fact that the road between their two houses is a busy rural highway, and he therefore warns them to be always mindful of their young children and the family cat. Many a pet has ended up in the nearby pet "sematary," Jud explains, due to an unscheduled meeting with a speeding truck or car on that infernal highway.
Inevitably, the Creeds' cat, Church, joins the roadkill ranks, but only the father, Louis Creed, is at home when this happens. Neighborly Jud worries about how the Creed children will take the news, so he decides to let Louis in on secret.Read more ›
Gage getting hit by the truck then coming back on a killing spree, Sister Zelda was just downright terrifying, and of course the ending where the wife comes back, runny eye and all.
Watch this alone in the dark at 2AM and you'll have trouble sleeping, you'll search for Gage under the bed and Zelda in your closet.
The Creed family have moved into the countryside, with two small children, a road in front of their house with trucks passing by constantly, and a haunted pet cemetery just located in the woods behind their house, something is bound to go wrong!
Don't forget to watch Pet Sematary II, though it is not a continuation of this part because it involves different characters, but the town is still the same.
had hoped for.after all,Stephen King adaptations seem to be hit and
miss.the story is quite a creepy concept.lets just say,people start
coming back from the dead after being buried.problem is,they don't come
back quite the same.of course you just know that someone will bury a
loved one in just the right spot,which is when things start to get
creepier.by the way,this isn't really a zombie movie,though it does
have that element to it.anyway,Fred Gwynne is very well cast and
noteworthy as the slightly odd(elderly)neighbor of the Creed family,who
have just moved in next door.all in all a very entertaining,creepy
tale,to say the least.certainly worth watching. 3/5
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.
