When the Creed family (parents Louis and Rachel, daughter Ellie and son Gage) move into their new home in the countryside, they quickly strike up a friendship with their neighbour, Jud Crandall. Two things instantly come to their attention, the narrow road that seperates their house from Jud's where trucks carelessly speed down day and night, and a path by the side of the house. When asked about the path, Jud tells the family that it leads to a pet cemetery that children made to bury their pets that died on the road. While the family are away visiting relatives, Louis stays behind and Church, Ellie's cat, dies. Jud tells Louis that the ground beyond the pet cemetery is an old Indian burial ground, and any pet that's buried there will return from the dead. Louis buries the cat and a few days later he returns, but it isn't the same cat as before. Sometime later, Gage is tragically run over by a truck during a picnic. Grief stricken a few days after the funeral, Louis digs up Gage and buries him at the Indian burial ground. Gage later returns, but is a very different child to the sweet innocent one that was run over. The film also contains two subplots, Pascow who was a student that was killed by a truck who tries to warn Louis about the dangers of using the burial ground, and Zelda, Rachel's sister who died years earlier who suffered from spinal meningitis which is an agonising, disfiguring disease.

The acting is pretty good with Fred Gwynne the stand out as Jud, the rest of the cast do a reasonable job. Dale Midkiff seems to attract a lot of criticism for his role as Louis, but I've always felt he did a good job and his performance certainly doesn't harm the film.

A classic from my childhood (why did my parents let me watch this as a kid?). The film feels like a made for TV movie, like a lot of Stephen King adaptions, but you can't beat Stephen King for story and characters, not to mention monsters. Like most adaptations the movie doesn't touch the book, but as a fan of Stephen King, when I want a lazy SK fix a movie is a fair substitute. The movie follows the books fairly closely and the suspense is good. I recommend this to horror fans.

When I was about 17 I read 'Pet Sematary' for the first time. It really made my skin crawl, it was a truly haunting and queerly beautiful novel. I found out that there was a film version and could not wait to see it. If 'The Shawshank Redemption' and 'Carrie' were anything to go on, it should have been a great film.
Alas, I was truly disappointed by this frankly damp squib of a movie. The film just seemed to me quite dull, with no depth to it. It seemed as though the producer and director had skim read through the book and picked out several scenes to move the story on,paying lip service to them to tell the story as quickly as possible and just get to the scary stuff. Bish bash bosh, family finds Pet sematary, son dies, son is buried, ha comes back and kills the end. As a result the characters seemed unbelievable and lifeless, they seemed to have no real character or roundedness to them at all and seemed as two dimensional as Tom and Jerry. Indeed the only good thing I can identify in this movie is the teriffic ramones theme track, a rock classic with an eerie quality to it. I loved that. I think this film could have been better in the hands of a different director. But alas it was directed by Mary Lambert, the woman responsible for Madonna's controversial 'Like a Prayer' video. I think it's generally accepted that for pop videos one does not need to create and develop believable characters and create an emotional core. Thats exactly what we got. Such a shame, because as I say the book is a terrific one, so thought provoking, and with a better director it could have been a thriller on a par with Carrie or The Sixth Sense. My advice to anyone wishing to purchase this vid should do what it says on the back of the sleeve, under the credits: 'Read the paperback'. Jen.

You don't have to take this too seriously. Of course, it's never going to be as good as the book but it still not too bad.
Doctor moves to new town, new house. Creepy neighbour shows the family the pet cemetary at the back of the house and tells a story about his dog buried there. New doc's daughter's cat gets killed on a busy road and dies, he buries it in an old Indian burial ground (who doesn't have one of those in the back yard) and it comes back to life but is not the cat he was! When his son dies, he does the same but son comes back "evil" and goes on to kill mother and creepy neighbour. Husband buries wife in graveyard and she comes back and kills him (phew!). Oh, and there's a ghost in there too.
You get the picture. Nothing too taxing. The cast is not huge and the leads are okay, Fred Gwynne plays his part well as does Dale Midkiff. The kids are annoying and you would bury them anyway.
It doesn't look like a cheap production and hasn't really dated. Best part is the Ramones soundtrack.
Watch with an open mind and you might enjoy. Watch it to be critical and you won't.
