The best part of the movie was seeing a highway sign that read “DERRY 20”.

It was like they read every third page of the book and completely disregarded the ending; nevertheless, I still liked it.

Gray movie. With that said there is nothing like the original. Effects were great. The cast did an awesome job. If you like scary movies this is a must see.

Good flick. Itmade me jump more than once. As a big King fan, I appreciated some Easter eggs to his works. It also was just different enough from the book and first movie to be a remake with some good twists.

I’m a pretty easy scare, but I sat through this Pet Sematary mostly unbothered. Which is certainly not the takeaway one should have from an adaptation of a Stephen King novel, let alone the one that King has said frightens him more than anything else he’s written. In this new film, you almost can’t see what he was so afraid of.

As with all Stephen King stories, there are resonant universal themes running through Pet Sematary; guilt, grief and trauma fuel this tale of a family who move to the countryside and become embroiled with an ancient evil. Yet these are buried deep under a mudslide of horror cliches — jump scares, creepy kids, expositional newspaper headlines — that reduce this to just another run-of-the-mill horror remake.

The book's creepy premise justifies this modern second look, which proves to be a solid if not earthshaking horror pic built around notably good performances.
