'Game of Thrones' Characters You Would (But Probably Shouldn't) Bury In The Pet Sematary

List RulesOnly GoT characters who have died or "not living."

We’re ranking the worst Game of Thrones characters to bring back from the dead.

In the Stephen King novel Pet Sematary - the cinematic adaption of which releases on April 5, 2019 - an unlucky family finds a mysterious burial ground on their property. And they set off a catastrophic chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil. Things buried in that cemetery don't come back the same; they transform into barely recognizable, vengeful beings.

Almost every person in Game of Thrones harbors a deep-seated need for revenge, but which dead GoT characters would come back worse if they were put in the Pet Sematary? Who would wreak the most havoc in Westeros if they were reanimated? 

Upvote the Game of Thrones characters you want to see buried in the cursed ground, and downvote the ones you think deserve to rest in peace.
