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.
Louis Creed, his wife Rachel, and their two children, Gage and Ellie, move to a rural home where they are welcomed and enlightened about the eerie 'Pet Sematary' located nearby. After the tragedy of their cat being killed by a truck, Louis resorts to burying it in the mysterious pet cemetery, which is definitely not as it seems, as it proves to the Creeds that sometimes, dead is better.
In the scene when Louis walks down to the basement and the cat hisses at him and runs upstairs, the cat was trained to hiss and growl when shown a certain toy. Prior to shooting the scene, the trainer placed the cat on the bottom step of the stairs. Another trainer was just off camera in front of the cat and repeated "Stay" and "Wait" to cat and gave treats as needed. Cat remained in a sit stay as Louis walked down the stairs and by the cat. Once the actor hit his mark, the trainer showed the cat his toy, the cat hissed and on cue ran up the stairs. See more »
During Louis's first trip to the burial ground, some lightning is seen near the horizon. Thunder follows about a second later. The lightning appears miles distant, and the thunder would have taken much longer to reach Louis's location. See more »
In the woods today, Ellie discovered a charming little landmark.
The Pet Sematary.
A place to bury our pets and remember them. I know it seems scary, but it's not. Perfectly natural, just like dying is natural.

Paramount Pictures Australia submitted a 98 minute version of Pet Sematary which gained an MA15+ rating. Presumably this version was pre-cut in an attempt to gain a lower M rating. As with Overlord, Paramount Pictures Australia decided to release the uncut version instead which also gained an MA15+ rating. See more »

It's an okay adaptation
Taking this film solely on adaptation bases and not comparing to the original film, this is an alright adaptation it has moments of tension, and good moments of horror in the first two acts. The acting is decent, and the final act really does pay off well, where you do really feel the tension suddenly building to a breaking point. I recommend people form their own view and watch this as more an adaptation than comparing with the original film.
