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.
While the movie ends ambiguously regarding the fate of Gage, the beginning shows us the aftermath of the final scene, namely a small bloody handprint on the car window with a trail of blood leading up to the front porch.

Jud Crandall: In Maine or in that old house?
Jud Crandall: Well, the answer to both is all my life.

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 (2018), Paramount Pictures Australia decided to release the uncut version instead which also gained an MA15+ rating.
