The remake of Pet Sematary is interesting. On one hand, it’s a remake of the original, which was actually a really good movie. On the other hand, it’s a different take on the story. The plot elements play out differently enough that this is a different experience. In that way, it’s also made specifically for those who have seen the original as some of the big moments are deliberately played out the same, then twist in a different direction in order to surprise those viewers.

For horror fans, it’s an enjoyable flick. The casting is great and everyone does a good job with their parts. Especially Jeté Laurence who plays the daughter, Ellie. There’s a good, creepy resonance throughout the film and it stays on track pretty well. It doesn’t rely on jump scares, but instead builds creepy scenes to spook you out. The ending fits in with that overall theme to make a good horror experience. If you haven’t seen the original, and you see this one first, I imagine you’ll enjoy it a lot. I’m going to go into spoilers from here, so stop at your own peril. Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘Pet Semetary’…
