Did You Know?

The film that Anthony Edwards (Chase) is watching is Once Upon a Time in America, which also features Darlanne Fluegel who plays his wife, Renee, in this movie.

Continuity: Yolander (correctly) refers to Zowie as a dog, when Chase goes to visit him. But Chase only ever talked about it as "an animal." Yolander could not have known the exact species.

Gus Gilbert: Get your ass out here Drew Gilbert, front and center!
Drew Gilbert: He is gonna kick my ass!

User Review

A ghoulish tale. Evil just has trouble staying dead.

Rating: 4/10

This is a sequel that has no connection to Stephen King. The only thing carried over from the original is the same location. Parts of this film are gory while violence over shadows the horror. This movie has been struck with a mean streak.

A young widower(Anthony Edwards)moves with his young son (Edward Furlong)to an old town in Maine. After hearing the legend of the pet cemetery where sometimes the dead are revived; he wants to take his mother from her grave and place her in the special burial ground in hopes of her rejoining the family. The boy's best friend's stepfather is proof that the legend is true. Some of the strangest scenes are funnier than they are scary. But don't rest easy for there are times you will flinch.

Also in the cast are: Clancy Brown, Jason McGuire and Lisa Waltz.
