    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.

    ....the movie, as most do-took liberties with the novel-but if not faithful, it was certainly effective.....

    I read the book in 1984 (age 23) and saw the movie in 1989 (age 28). Neither one really scared me though I do like the book. It "creeped me out" but did not scare me. The movie... eh.

    I saw the movie when I was 10 and the sister scarred the crap out of me! I had nightmares for weeks from the part where she runs out of the corner yelling "you'll never walk again!"

    The book creeped me out way more than the film did.

    Left me feeling so unnerved...

    ...and the ripping sound as Church was peeled off the ground made me feel sick.

    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.

    One of Mr. King's books I read quickly. Yes, it is and was that compelling. Didn't scare me, but it was kinda creepy.
