Storyline

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.

Trivia

"Ever hungry, they craved human flesh, which is the only substance that could sustain them," wrote Ojibwe storyteller Basil Johnston in The Manitous. "The irony is that having eaten human flesh, the Weendigoes grew in size, so their hunger and craving remained in proportion to their size; thus they were eternally starving." Eventually, after wandering the woods of Canada and Minnesota, the ever-starving Wendigo made its way to Ludlow. Jud, Louis's neighbor, sheds some light on the history of the Wendigo and Ludlow. A lifetime resident of Ludlow, Jud knows well enough not to venture into the burial ground too often. Judging by the the archives that Louis pulls up on his computer, the burial ground's powers seem to be common knowledge in Ludlow. Residents have been using the burial ground's powers for decades as someone once brought back a bull and a dog. See more »

Goofs

When the tanker truck swerved to avoid Gage the trailer becomes detached from the tractor which leads to the tragic death. However, in real life this would not have happened, and the whole truck unit would have simply crashed into the ditch. See more »

Quotes

Everything you'd want from a remake!
10 April 2019 | by UniqueParticleSee all my reviews

I saw this yesterday in RPX:Regal Premium experience which added to the already chilling & incredible sounds! Rarely horror effects me during by giving the shakes & disturbing me afterwards I've even seen thousands of horror or otherwise; this really succeeded in every way better than the original!
