Pet Sematary
Pet Sematary trivia picture

Trivia: In the scene of Missy's funeral, Stephen King plays the priest.

Trivia: At the beginning of the movie when it shows the pet graves in the Pet Sematary there is a grave that says, "Smucky the Cat, he was obedient." Smucky the Cat was actually Stephen King's daughter's cat that was killed.

Trivia: George A. Romero was originally set to direct; but when filming was delayed, he dropped out, and Mary Lambert stepped in.

Trivia: Stephen King got the idea for Pet Sematary after his daughter's cat, Smucky, was killed. She was heart-broken and King thought "What if he could come back?"

Trivia: Originally the fate of Louis Creed was meant to be more subtle and open - his deceased wife Rachel was to walk into the kitchen and discover him alone and end there; in the film, a grotesque Rachel embraces him while grabbing a knife and we hear his scream just when the screen fades to black.

Continuity mistake: There is no knife on the table when the wife enters the kitchen at the very end, however, she walks straight to Louis, hugs him and then magically a knife appears at the edge of the table which she picks up and uses to stab him (implied - the movie actually ends at that point).

Answer: Because in the book, the sign at the entrance to the "Pet Semetary" was written by some anonymous child. Clearly he/she couldn't spell that well yet.
