Story intro

Louis Creed, a doctor from Boston, Massachusetts moves to the small town of Ludlow, Maine with his wife Rachel, their two young children, Ellie and Gage, and Ellie's cat, Winston Churchill, called "Church", for short. While exploring the woods surrounding their new home, Ellie stumbles across a funeral procession of children wearing animal masks taking a deceased dog to a cemetery, noting a sign reading "Pet Sematary." Jud Crandall, their neighbor, warns Ellie and Rachel that the woods are dangerous and not to venture out alone. At the university hospital, Louis is left shaken after failing to save the life of Victor Pascow, a student who has been fatally injured after being struck by a vehicle. On the night following Pascow's death, Louis experiences a vivid dream in which he meets Pascow, who leads him to the back of the cemetery and warns Louis not to "venture beyond" and that "the ground is sour". A disturbed Louis awakens to find his feet and bed sheets caked in mud, suggesting that the evening's previous events were more than just a nightmare. On Halloween, Church is killed by a truck. Jud takes Louis to the Pet Sematary, supposedly to bury Church, however he leads Louis farther to an ancient burial ground. The next day, Louis is stunned when Church returns home alive, although he is notably more aggressive, scratching Ellie and violently ripping open a bird. Louis confronts Jud who tells him that the burial ground behind the Pet Sematary is able to bring things back from the dead and is believed to be inhabited by a spirit known as the Wendigo. After Church attacks Gage, Louis attempts to euthanize him, however he decides against killing the cat and instead releases him at the gate of an area with restricted access, before telling Ellie that he ran away.
