When production started, January 1992, the director Mary Lambert was set to filming in Maine, like the first one. But the producers switched production to Georgia because they were wary of Maine's winter weather around that time. Plus Georgia's topiary was similar to Maine 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 ghoulish tale. Evil just has trouble staying dead.
This is a sequel that has no connection to Stephen King. The only thing carried over from the original is the same location. Parts of this film are gory while violence over shadows the horror. This movie has been struck with a mean streak.
A young widower(Anthony Edwards)moves with his young son (Edward Furlong)to an old town in Maine. After hearing the legend of the pet cemetery where sometimes the dead are revived; he wants to take his mother from her grave and place her in the special burial ground in hopes of her rejoining the family. The boy's best friend's stepfather is proof that the legend is true. Some of the strangest scenes are funnier than they are scary. But don't rest easy for there are times you will flinch.
Also in the cast are: Clancy Brown, Jason McGuire and Lisa Waltz.
