Sunday afternoon, after Kentucky lost to Auburn in the NCAA tournament, I decided to pop 1989’s Pet Sematary into the ol’ DVD player. I wanted to watch the original before the remake is released this weekend.
Pet Sematary was released on April 21, 1989 and stars Dale Midkiff, Denise Crosby, and Fred Gwynne.
Pet Sematary was directed by Mary Lambert and the screenplay was written by Stephen King, who also has a cameo in the film.
The Ramones sing the title track to the movie over the end credits.
Enjoy your Thursday evening and remember the immortal words of Jud Crandall, “Sometimes dead is better.”
