There’s an old Indian Micmac burial ground, the sign behind the house of the Creed family spells: ‘Pet Sematary’. In the sequel to the 1989 ‘Stephen King’s Pet Sematary’, Young Jeff Matthews (Edward Furlong) has just lost his mom Renee (Darlanne Fluegel), and so moves in with his veterinarian dad, Chase (Anthony Edwards), in Ludlow, Maine. Jeff soon learns about the history of the burial ground and the Creed family murders.

He makes a friend of Drew (Jason McGuire), the stepson of the town sheriff, Gus Gilbert (Clancy Brown), who shoots and kills Drew’s dog Zowie. Jeff and Drew try reanimating Zowie by burying him in the sematary and seeing if any of the urban-legends hold true. Indeed Zowie comes back, unusually fierce, his eyes capturing an unnatural glow even in daylight, without a heartbeat, yet moving and active just the same. The blood sample Chase sends to a lab shows that Zowie’s cells have completely died, making him no different, in terms of blood work, from any other dead dog.

The crazy situation with the cemetery gets Jeff to start obsessing about getting his mother, Renee, exhumed from her current resting place and buried in the burial ground to bring her back. But can anyone really come back?
