Pet Sematary DVD Page
It is a special day for the Creed family. Louis, his lovely wife Rachel, their daughter Ellie, and toddler Gage (Miko Hughes) have left behind the hustle and bustle of the big city for a little country living. But there seems to be a few things their realtor forgot to tell them about their new digs. First, it seems that the road that runs by their new house is like the "Indianapolis Speedway" for truckers. Second, there's a little overgrown path in their backyard leads to a makeshift "Pet Sematary". It serves as the final resting-place for many of the pets claimed by this "highway to hell". Louis, a new doctor at the local college, receives the dying words from an accident victim. Later that evening, Louis is visited by this ghostly apparition who warns "the barrier was not meant to be crossed." It was only a nightmare, right.....or was it???
While Louis' wife and kids are away, Ellie's cat "Church" falls victim to this deadly road. As Louis and his neighbor, Jud, (Fred Gwynne) head out to bury "Church" in the "Pet Sematary", Jud decides to take Louis beyond the barrier (of brush) up into an ancient Micmac Indian burial ground. Here they lay "Church" to rest.
Well as time passes, sure enough "Church" shows back up, a little worse for wear, but alive and seemingly well. Louis believes he must have buried him alive. He reeks of an unbelievable stench that won't go away, and his isn't quite the cat we've all come to love. He rushes over to Jud places where he finds out that "dead don't stay dead" when buried up there. Their conversion quickly ends with the question "Has anyone ever buried a person up there?"
