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.
A lonely woman befriends a group of teenagers and decides to let them party at her house. Just when the kids think their luck couldn't get any better, things start happening that make them question the intention of their host.
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.
When Louis does research on his MacBook about reanimation incidents in Ludlow, he comes across articles about Hanratty the bull and soldier Timmy Baterman. In this remake Baterman is updated from a WWII Veteran to a Vietnam Veteran, due to being set in the 2010s rather than the 1980s, in which the book and original Pet Sematary (1989) were set).

For the Halloween scenes, the outside foliage is seen clearly in full green, spring bloom, this would not be the case for late October (Autumn) in Maine/New England. 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 »
I'm not going to say much... every "dark" scene looks like it was obviously film in an indoor studio rather than outdoors... anyone scared by this is a child to horror filmmaking.. why King endorsed this i will never know, unless its about the usal $$$... the original film kicks this one's butt in oh so many ways... as a BIG fan of the book this film left me dry in the mouth.. the actors do not reflect the book's in anyway... even if this were a retelling it fails to conjure any real scares, instead opting for cheesy scores at times it wants you to feel tension... it just does not work...
