So many trees.
Rachel: It's beautiful, right?
Louis Creed: It's definately not Boston.
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.
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.
