A doctor dabbles in magical resurrection with horrific consequences in this supernatural thriller adapted from the novel by Stephen King. When Dr. Louis Creed (Dale Midkiff) and his family move from Chicago to an old farmhouse in rural Maine, their only concern is the busy highway that flanks their new home. Louis' family -- wife Rachel (Denise Crosby), daughter Ellie (Blaze Berdahl), and toddler Gage (Miko Hughes) -- soon meet kindly old duffer Jud Crandall (Fred Gwynne), who introduces them all to the local attractions, including a pet cemetary built on the remains of a Native American burial ground. When Rachel and the kids head off to visit Louis' in-laws, Ellie's cat gets flattened by a truck. Jud counsels Louis to bury it in the old Indian portion of the cemetary; the next day, it returns from the dead, carrying with it the stink of the earth and a decidedly bad attitude. Shortly thereafter, Louis is tempted to use the cemetary's magical powers again when his son suffers a tragic accident. A snarling kitty, it turns out, is nothing compared to the horror of a little boy with no soul and a taste for scalpels. In addition to adapting his own novel for the screen, writer King appeared in a brief cameo as the minister presiding over Gage's funeral. Director Mary Lambert would return with Pet Sematary Two.~Brian J. Dillard

About this film, directed by Mary Lambert, full of scares and creepy scenes. Without giving up the plot, the scene where Louis Creed, played by Dale Midkiff, wakes up after a vivid dream to learn he did go to the Pet Sematary. Supporting cast Fred Gwynne as neighbor Jud and Denise Crosby as Rachel Creed the wife, who has plenty of childhood horror of her own. This new print was remastered. The colors are now vivid and picture quality sharp. It was like seeing the details of the film for the first time!
Glad that Best Buy has added a section for reasonably Halloween titles! Can't wait to watch this!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS MOVIE...and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS 4K+BLU-RAY+DIGITAL Best Buy Exclusive Steelbook, featuring the artwork of MONDO X. On 4K, the detail, color timing and color correction (supervised by Mary Lambert) is absolutely solid. The audio is crisp and clear and delivers to all the right speakers...screams...music...echoes from the pet cemetery... This is the definitive release of (in my opinion) Stephen King's scariest scareshow to date. Highly reccommended!
