Horror. Doctor Louis Creed moves with his family (wife Rachel, daughter Ellie and son Gage) from the city to the forests of rural Maine, where their new house comes with a large amount of land on which is the long-standing pet cemetery (misspelt as 'sematary' on the sign children have put up). Widowed neighbour Jud demonstrates to Louis that if you bury a dead animal in the ground hidden in the hill above the cemetery, the animal returns, though changed into a vicious version of itself. When family tragedy strikes, Louis is tempted to take a desperate step into the unknown, despite the risk of horrific consequences.
