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.
Twelve years after the tragic death of their little girl, a doll-maker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, where they become the target of the doll-maker's possessed creation, Annabelle.
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.
Producer Di Bonaventura notes that Kevin Kölsch and Widmyer gave Stephen King an early heads-up on the big twist. "We wanted to see if he had any objections, and he was more than cool with it," said the producer. "In some ways it's true to the book because in the book the conversations about death are with Ellie. In that respect we're following the book. We call it wrapping it up in a black ribbon," said co-director Widmyer. "It is wrapped up, but not how you think it's going to be." See more »
When we see the shot of the truck barreling towards Elle and Gage, the camera truck can be seen reflected off the truck's steel bumper. See more »
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 »
This film was unfortunately the biggest disappointment of the year in my personal opinion. Upon hearing that another Stephen King film was being remade, I couldn't wait to see it, but was hugely let down by it. I was that bored with it, I ate 90% of the popcorn before the film was 75% through. The long and short of it is this..the best parts are in the trailer.
