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.
Another detail absent from the new film in the interest of keeping its plot streamlined was the bad blood between Rachel's parents and Louis. "There's a small remnant of it where you can see the father-in-law give [Louis] the dirtiest look at the funeral, and that's a tip of the hat to the subject matter," said Di Bonaventura. "That's one thing I would have loved to put in the movie, but we didn't really have room for it."
Here we go. Ok, so what do you think?
Ellie: Wow! This place is ours?
Louis Creed: I even got them to throw in a whole forest as a new backyard.
When Ellie begins climbing the barrier in the "pet sematary", she accidentally kicks what appears to be a hornets nest, and is stung on the leg. Judd appears and immediately removes the stinger, and applies a dab of mud as first aid. Hornets do not leave their stingers behind when they sting. Only bees do this.
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.
