Pet Sematary script
Pet Sematary (1989)
Synopsis: Doctor Louis Creed (Dale Midkiff) moves his family to Maine, where he meets a friendly local named Jud Crandall (Fred Gwynne). After the Creeds' cat is accidentally killed, Crandall advises Louis to bury it in the ground near the old pet cemetery. The cat returns to life, its personality changed for the worse. When Louis' son, Gage (Miko Hughes), dies tragically, Louis decides to bury the boy's body in the same ground despite the warnings of Crandall and Louis' visions of a deceased patient.

EXT. REAR OF THE WAGON

As LOUIS CREED brings it to a stop we get a good look at the

license plate (Illinois) and a bumper sticker (HAVE YOU HUGGED

YOUR M.D. TODAY?)

The ENGINE SOUND stops. For a moment or two we hear only the ree-

ree-ree-ree of crickets. Then:

ELLIE CREED (voice)

Is this our new house, daddy?

LOUIS CREED (voice)

This is it.

EXT. THE WAGON, A NEW ANGLE

The two front doors and one back door open. LOUIS CREED, about 32,

gets out from the driver's side. RACHEL CREED, his wife, gets out

from the passenger side. From the rear door comes ELLIE CREED, a

girl of 6. They are staring, fascinated, at the house.

They come together, the three of them, by the front of the wagon,

still staring at the house. LOUIS is clearly nervous.

LOUIS:

So...what do you think?

RACHEL begins to smile. She turns to LOUIS and hugs him.

RACHEL:

It's gorgeous!

ELLIE:

Am I really gonna have my own room?

LOUIS:

Yes.

ELLIE:

Yaay!

She looks toward the side lawn and sees a tire on a rope hanging

down from the bough of a tree.

ELLIE (to RACHEL)

Is that a swing?

RACHEL:

Yes, but the rope might be--

ELLIE:

Yaay!

She goes running toward it. RACHEL gives LOUIS a tired smile.

LOUIS:

Let her go. It's cool.

RACHEL:

Louis, the house is beautiful.

They kiss--gently at first, then more passionately. As he draws

her more tightly against him, a baby--GAGE--begins to cry from the

car. LOUIS and RACHEL break the clinch.

RACHEL:

The Master of Disaster awakes.

This SOUND is joined by the unhappy yowling of a pent-up tomcat.

LOUIS:

And Buckaroo Banzai.

RACHEL:

Come on--let's parole 'em.

They walk to the car, RACHEL going to one of the back seat doors,

LOUIS to the rear of the wagon.
