In this video, we take a look back at the classic horror film: Pet Sematary, and go down a list of some very interesting facts about the movie that you probably never knew about:

Stephen King based a lot of the things in Pet Sematary on his own personal experiences.

- His family moved into a house very similar to the one in Pet Semetary when he was teaching for a year at the University of Maine.

- During this time, his daughter, Naomi, was about Ellie creeds age, and she also had a cat.

- King and his family were warned about the road, and the Pet Semetary was actually pointed out to them as a place where a lot of animals that strayed out into the road had ended up.

- King, much like his character Louis Creed, got a call from his neighbor saying that he had a dead cat on his lawn, and he thinks it may be his daughters -- it was.

In case you didn't catch it, like a lot of films based off of his work, Stephen King makes a brief cameo as the preacher in the film.

Pet Semetery was published in 1983, which was about 4 to 5 years after it had actually been written. Stephen King had fallen into a depression while writing the book, and just packed it away into a drawer. However, he offered the book up to his publisher at the time, double day, which would conclude their contract.

Ludlow, Maine, is a fictional town. However, geographically speaking, it corresponds with Orrington, Maine, the town King was living in while he was writing the novel.

It was important to Stephen King to have Pet Sematary shot in Maine, and it was actually one of his requirements when the rights were acquired to make the film.

Ellie Creed was played by twins.

A sequel was rumored for a long time that was said to follow the life of Ellie Creed as an adult.

Executives wanted Director Mary Lambert to cast twins to take on the role of Gage, but she declined, stating that she fell in love with Nico and knew he'd be the right kid for the part.

Upon reading the script, Mary Lambert felt that Fred Gwynne would be perfect for the role of Judd Crandall.

Fred Gwynne believed he was meant to play the role of Judd Crandall.

There were 5-6 cats used in the film for the role of Ellie's cat, church. Each cat could do something different, so that's why they used so many.

A light flex was used to create the glowing eye effect for church. The director of photography would reverse the lens, which would give him the ability to adjust the lighting of the cat's eyes.

Director Mary Lambert didn't consider herself a horror director, nor had she done a horror film prior to Pet Semetary. After reading the script, she was very interested in what she could do visually with the film.

Mary Lambert met with paramount in regards to directing the film, but before being selected, she first had to pass the test of meeting up with Stephen King.

Whenever director Mary Lambert wanted to discuss something creatively about the film, King always made himself available to her.

Stephen King attended the script readings once the actors made it to Maine. While there, he'd drink a can of Jolt cola and read from the obituaries out-loud.

King actually lived about 20 minutes from the filming locations, so he was on-set a lot.

Fred Gwynne had to have his hair dyed white for the role of Judd Crandall, as he had black hair at the time, which also grew quite fast. Often times, he'd have to come on set early to have his hair dyed.

I've watched the movie many times and can't help but look for the couple of times the actor playing Luis hits his head or face when he falls. Out of bed, on the deadfall...Let me know anyone if you have noticed that too!

This movie fun but not great. Dale Midkiff and Denise Crosby are tv level actors who really cheesed it up in this one. Some good scary scenes but it feels too long. Fred Gwynne is great of course.

Ludlow is an actual town in Maine off of I95 near the Canadian border. Using Ludlow as the setting for the story makes sense because of its proximity to the land inhabited by the Micmacs.

The first time I watched this movie, I was in High school and babysitting. The house I was babysitting at was located right beside a cemetery! Literally feet away. I let the kids 10 and 12 stay up and watch it with me! The movie scared the shit outta me at the time!! I went to school a few years later in Bangor and got to see Stephen Kings house! Got my picture taken right in front of the place! He's AWESOME!

I always loved the film but last year i read the book, and wow! , there is just so much more to it! And i really didn't think this story could get any scarier but man was i wrong! If you haven't read it you really should, but i'm warning you, you won't like the film as much.

I hope the remake in 2019 manages to capture more of the story from the book!

I did enjoy your video. You are right The wendigo part is interesting I wonder if the remake will have it? Ya know I might just have to watch the film again since I finally read the damn thing lol, have you seen the new documentary about it? I haven't yet but it looks good. I wanna read another king novel I just dunno what yet. Any suggestions? I do have his new one too, before I forget there was a guy on another channel it wasn't his channel though saying king has retired. He has another book on the way. Plus there is the last jack Sawyer book too he needs to do. Oh this guy also claimed that they no longer edit his books, yet in revival he thanks his editor as well I sleeping beauties,

Well I finished the book tonight and I did enjoy it, but here is the thing, I honestly didn't find it that scary. I wasn't expecting to say that at all! I dunno if its cause I've seen the film a shit ton of times. But the film was scarier. Some stuff they should have kept in. But really I get why the wendigo was cut from the film. I think the scary part is mainly the death of a child for king. Add since he nearly lost Owen before it was written. But though I have read IT a number of times. That one I just read a couple years ago, and that one still scares the shit out of me. That one I think is his scariest book. When Jud was... my pulse I think did race a tiny bit but not like the part in IT where a kid gets killed on that damn.

I agree when the book is Louis well his story it can be difficult. For me I can tell when he loses his sanity and its I think a great film. But not everyone feels that way, this film though is I got 140 pages left to read is pretty so far faithful. But not completely of course
