After the horrible electrocution of his divorced mother in a freakish film-set accident, the troubled thirteen-year-old boy, Jeff Matthews, and his father, Chase, move to his hometown of Ludlow, Maine, to make a fresh start. However, as Jeff struggles to leave the bad memories behind him, his only friend, Drew Gilbert, tells him about the ancient Indian burial site with the otherworldly reanimating powers, intent on testing it on his loyal dog, Zowie. Indeed, the myth is real; nevertheless, what would happen if Jeff buried his beloved mother's dead body in the graveyard's stony soil? Can the dead truly return from the grave?Written by
Zowie is at the vet's office because he has scratches from the rabbits on his nose and close to his eyes. To create the proper effect, the scratches were made with non-toxic makeup and a harmless dye, "eye blood", which is frequently used on actors, was used on the dog. See more »
When Gus comes back with the body bag and shovel to pick up Clyde's body, Clyde's one good eye is open and staring up vacantly. But when Gus rolls Clyde over onto the body bag, his eye is now closed. It's open again when Gus goes to zip up the body bag. See more »

There is a good-quality workprint circulating as a bootleg which contains all the graphic violence (including a more graphic shot of the drill scene) which was cut from the U.S. release to earn an "R" rating. See more »
a inferior sequel that is much too slick for its own good
Pet Semetary 2 is not as creepy as Pet Semetery.it is however,gorier and faster paced.there is also more character development in this one,so theoretically you should feel more emotionally for the characters,but i didn't.perhaps that may be because they are all shallow and unlikable.this movie was played more for camp value,than anything else.the acting is very hammy in some scenes,i hope intentionally.there is also an attempt at shock value,but it is more disgust i felt than shock in some scenes.this movie also has none of the atmosphere or mystique of the first.it is much too slick feeling.i felt the first had a sort of rough,raw quality,which works.the slickness of this movie is one of its failings,along with some others i mentioned.bottom line.this movie is inferior to the original. 5/10
