If you don’t know the story, Pet Sematary follows Dr. Louis Creed and his family as they move to Maine with their cat who is killed shortly after. The father’s newfound friend, Jud Crandall, advises the family to bury their cat near the old pet cemetery. The cat mysteriously comes back to life but, as you can image, is not the same. Then the son dies and Louis, going against his better judgement, decides to bury his son on the same burial grounds. Stephen Kingisms ensue.




The adaptation is set to release on August 19th of next year. You have plenty of time to read the book and see the other adaptations, if you haven’t already done so.
