Pet Sematary

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).

Continuity mistake: When Jud asks for the picture from Ellie, he grabs it with one hand. When the camera cuts he is holding onto it with both hands. (00:49:15)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Louis goes to dig up Gage's body, the grave is covered with dozens of white flowers. A police car drives up with the lights on and Louis turns to look; after Pascow warns Louis not to cross the barrier because the earth is sour, then the camera cuts back to Louis, and the flowers are gone.

More quotes from Pet Sematary

Question: Why is sematary misspelled?

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.

Grumpy Scot

Question: Why did Louis kill Church at the end? He only planned on killing Gage if he came back like Timmy Baterman did, and he could have just walked in after distracting Church with the meat.

JohnShel91

Chosen answer: Church's behavior had changed after being buried. He was now violent (and working with Gage) and needed to be put down before killing anyone.
