    In both Stephen King’s book and the two movies, the story of “Pet Sematary” starts when the Creed family move to the spooky rural town of Ludlow, Maine. But, while in the book and the 1989 movie the family is moving from Chicago, the new 2019 film has them moving from Boston instead. It’s a little change, but it impacts the distance the family has moved, and how out of their element they feel in their new home.
