Summary
From horror's master storyteller, Stephen King, comes the classic tale--PET SEMETARY. When the Creeds move into a beautiful old house in rural Maine, it all seems too good to be true: physician father, beautiful wife, charming little daughter, adorable infant son--and now an idyllic home. As a family, they've got it all ... right down to the friendly car. But the nearby woods hide a blood-chilling truth--more terrifying than death itself--and hideously more powerful. Annotation. "Sometimes dead is better ..." When the Creeds move into a beautiful old house in rural Maine, it all seems too good to be true: physician father, beautiful wife, charming little daughter, adorable infant son -- and now an idyllic home. As a family, they've got it all ... right down to the friendly cat. But the nearby woods hide a blood-chilling truth -- more terrifying than death itself ... and hideously more powerful
Summary
When the Creed family's beloved cat, Winston Churchill, dies, Dr. Louis Creed -- on the instructions of his elderly neighbor -- buries the animal not in the "Pet Sematary" where local children inter their deceased pets, but rather in the haunted Indian burial ground behind it. The next day, a changed Churchill comes back, a little smellier and more vicious than before. What will happen when a person dies and is buried in the same area? -- Description by Dawn Towery
