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 truly shocking and terrible scenes from the movie involves a small child and a huge 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’s Religious belief’s death. But would you believe that the very truck used in the scene still spends its days in Maine? Because it does.
Original 1989 Film
Shared on Reddit by Courage and Skills Such, the poster states that (something that survived from the past) from the original 1989 film was (tripped while walking/made a mistake) across during a trip to a junkyard in a tiny town in Eastern Maine called Princeton. The pictures shared to show the old truck and the custom plate, confirming the vehicle was custom-built for the movie.
According to the Scioto Post, a timber dragging/carrying company in Princeton are the owners of the famous piece of the movie (things that remind you of something about the past).
Murray, Laplant and Sons have housed the truck on their property for years, and in a twist for film fans, actually used the custom-built truck to drag/carry items at one point in time. The company quickly (understood/made real/achieved) Stephen King fanatics were extremely interested in the vehicle, so they used it as a show truck for many years.
They thought about/believed in selling it, but decided to park it and leave it be. So there sits a famous evil person hidden away in Maine. Just the way Stephen King would want it.
