The Deadly Truck From The Original ‘Pet Sematary’ Movie Is Sitting Abandoned In A Maine Yard
If you've seen the original adaption film of Stephen King's "Pet Sematary", you don't need us to tell you that one of the more horrifying scenes from the movie involves a small child and a massive tractor trailer. For many, that scene left a lasting mark on their brain, with a speeding, bright red truck serving as a constant reminder of Gage Creed's demise. But would you believe that the very truck used in that scene still spends its days in Maine? Because it does.
Shared on Reddit by MoxieSauce, the poster states that the relic from the original 1989 film was stumbled across during a trip to a junkyard in a tiny town in eastern Maine called Princeton. The pictures shared were split to show the old truck and the custom plate that identifies the truck was custom built for the movie.
The post generated hundreds of comments, many wondering how this piece of horror film history is sitting abandoned in a town of less than 1,000 people. But isn't that EXACTLY where it should be? Seems rather poetic that the master of horror, who created a villain out of a piece of machinery, has that dastardly truck sitting in plain sight for everyone to see.
Truth be told, we don't have any idea who owns this truck, or whether or not you can even lay eyes on it without trespassing. But given that the first trailer for the remake of "Pet Sematary" just came out, seems like the perfect time to revisit exactly what made the original so damning.
Oh...and here's that scene. Watch it again if you dare.
