‘Pet Sematary’ Movie Summary
From the mind of Stephen King, and the author who Chris believes has a terminal case of verbal diarrhea, comes this week’s film PET SEMATARY. The film introduces us to Louis and Rachel Creed who relocate their family from Chicago to Ludlow, Maine after Louis accepts a job as a doctor with the University of Maine. Besides Ma and Pa Creed, the family has two children, Ellie and Gage, and their cat, Church.
The road in front of the new Creed homestead doubles as the final lap of the Indianapolis 500 with semi-trucks racing to see what they can hit quicker than you can scream, “Gage, look out for that truck!”
Fred Gwynne plays the Creed’s neighbor, old Jud Crandall. He’s just 23 years removed from playing Herman Munster, and 3 years shy of referring to the “two Utes” whatever that is. Jud is a widower who lost his wife during the adaptation of the book which is a horrible way to go. The Creeds quickly adopt him as one of their own, and he becomes Louis’ confidant. Jud entertains the Creeds with wholesome activities such as visits to the pet cemetery in the woods where the town buries all the roadkill from the semi-trucks.Read the full summary
