What is the plot of Pet Sematary?
According to Paramount Pictures, the studio behind the movie, the synopsis is as follows:
“Pet Sematary follows Dr Louis Creed who, after relocating with his wife Rachel and their two young children from Boston to rural Maine, discovers a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near the family’s new home.
“When tragedy strikes, Louis turns to his unusual neighbour, Jud Crandall, setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences…”
