Dr. Louis Creed and his wife, Rachel, relocate from Boston to rural Maine with their two young children. The couple soon discover a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near their new home.
With dreams of a better life, the young doctor, Louis Creed, and his family--his wife, Rachel, their daughter, Ellie, and their three-year-old toddler, Gage--move to their new home in the small rural town of Ludlow, Maine, alarmingly close to a busy highway. However, when Rachel's cherished tomcat is inadvertently killed in an awful accident, a desperate Louis will reluctantly take his friendly neighbour's advice to bury it in an ancient Micmac graveyard--a mystical burial ground imbued with reanimating powers. Despite the terrible results and the insistent warnings from a recently deceased, tragedy-stricken Louis is forced to go back to the Indian cemetery, hoping that, this time, things will be different. But, can the dead return from the grave?Written by
Stephen King once mentioned that the only novel he wrote that really scared him was "Pet Sematary." See more »
(at around 1h 21 mins) When Jud is attacked by Gage with scalpel neither wound inflicted bleeds. You would expect there to be some blood on the scalpel when Gage is shown holding it between the heel and face slices given how deep the blade went into Jud's heel but it's spotless. See more »

Television censors of some of the films gorier moments included alternate shots from different angles that hide the more graphic images. This especially came into play with the Timmy Baterman scenes and the films finale in the Creed's kitchen. See more »
I had a good exsperiance with this movie. It's an old classic the whole family can enjoy together. I'd say the lesson taught in this movie is to move on with your life when something bad happens, hence sometimes dead is better😉
