PET SEMATARY is a US horror remake in which a family discover a mysterious burial ground in the woods near their new home.

Violence

There is a close-up image of a man's Achilles tendon being slashed with a blade, resulting in a spurt of blood and brief strong wound detail. Further bloody violence includes sequences in which people are stabbed or impaled.

Injury detail

There is strong, gory wound detail, including shredded, bleeding flesh and exposed bone and brain, when a man is treated in hospital after an off-screen traffic accident.

Threat

There are prolonged scenes of strong supernatural threat and occasional 'jump scare' moments. These scenes include ones in which people are attacked and killed by an undead child, as well as others in which characters experience disturbing visions.

A child is killed in a traffic accident, without graphic visual detail, resulting in scenes of bereavement. There is use of strong language ('f**k'). In another scene a clothed couple are briefly shown grinding against one another in bed. Other issues include sight of the bloodied body of a cat after it is killed off screen.
