    18 Important Life Lessons We Learned From "Pet Sematary"

    If your husband is thinking about reviving the dead....DUMP HIM.

    Quick warning: the following post contains spoilers, so, ya know, proceed at your own risk!

    1. First life lessons: if you're in the market for a new house, maybe make sure said new house doesn't come with a cemetery??

    2. Like, especially if freaky kids with animal masks hang out around it.

    3. Another important lesson: if your neighbor tries to talk to you about some supernatural place that can revive the dead, leave!!!

    4. On the other hand, if you **are** the person who knows about that supernatural place for reviving the dead, maybe don't go telling your poor neighbors.

    5. And definitely don't go visiting said supernatural hotspot if it's filled with ancient warnings that basically say "Keep out" in all caps...

    6. Or if you learn that there may or may not be an ancient spirit haunting the grounds.

    7. Pro tip: talk to your kids about death and dying before they become the walking dead...

    8. And if your cat turns into an aggressive and violent zombie cat, maybe keep 'em away from your kids.

    9. But, whatever you do, don't just **abandon** them somewhere.

    10. If you're a doctor, and the ghost of one of your patients tells you not to do something, pay attention to them???

    11. Because if you don't, the ghost just might start communicating with your kids, which never leads to good things!

    12. Speaking of ghosts, if your evil undead sister appears before you, you should definitely move.

    13. As an aside: always use conditioner, because do you really want to come back from the dead with tangly scraggly hair like this??

    14. If your husband starts talking to you about reviving your dead daughter, DUMP — and I can't emphasize this enough — HIM.

    15. And if you find out that he's already done it, LEAVE HIM.

    16. Never wear slippers without socks if there is a murderous girl in your house.

    17. In general, let the dead stay dead, and above all...

    18. For the love of all that is good and buried...watch out for trucks!
