When i first saw this movie at the late age of 11 i was honestly traumatized it really messed with my mind. The part that really scared me was the dead sister and her spine cracking was a truly terrifying experience. Also when the guy gets his heel tendon cut and his throat slit i started to shake.
THANK YOU!!! People act like I'm crazy or a complete wuss when I tell them how badly Pet Sematary scared me as a kid, and for the exact same reason. The sister. I think I was 10 or 11 and my older brother and a bunch of his were having a sleepover and I watched it with them. I had seen horror movies before but none before or after really scared me that much, but those scenes with the sister had me terrified. I had a friend sleeping over too and he was scared so we slept with the lights on, but I was too scared to even close my eyes but I eventually fell asleep. Until my dad came barging in asking why he saw my light on so late. I don't remember too well but I think he was pissed off because he let us watch that movie and then got all scared.

Yeah, Zelda is creepy, for whatever weird reason reminds me of Amanda Plummer. I didn't find the film scary, but I liked the Victor character. I find the book to be much more effective. Plus I have a hard time taking Fred Gwynne seriously, I keep waiting for him to jump up and down while yelling "darn, darn, darn..."

Saw this movie when I was 5 or 6 and it messed me up for a long time in regards to horror movies. I now question my parents judgement for letting me watch it with them. Read the book it my late 20's. The book is one of my favorite non Dark Tower related books. The Zelda scenes were among the worst (scariest for a young kid). RRRAAAAAACHEEEELL! NEVER GET OUT OF BED AGAIN!!!
