Without any real scares, there's no reason at all for this movie to exist.

It bombs despite King adapting the screenplay from his novel.

a flawed, but still bracingly horrific film of ideas, one that maintains with substantial impact the novel's tragic themes about death and the limitations of human control

...one of the most witless horror movies I've sat through, essentially a zombie ghost story that's wholly predictable throughout.

Haunting, sorrowful and reverberatingly eerie. Above all, Pet Sematary is a remarkably mature and thought-provoking look at the mysterious nature of death and the complexity of the grieving process.

A true-blue bruise of a horror flick, packed with unsettling images, shocking demises, and a wonderfully apt sense of macabre humor.

A ghost, a zombie cat, a murderous toddler, and Herman Munster... What's not to love?

Great Stephen King movie. Some true scares, lots of gore, and a hint of morality. Are you responsible for the reanimated dead?

So bad it's funny. Gwynne seems to be hawking Pepperidge Farm cookies.

A dull Stephen King adaptation that is neither scary or enjoyably dumb.
| Original Score: 1/5

Aside from its blatant foreshadowing, the main problem with Pet Sematary is its hit-you-over-the-head approach to characters' inability to "let sleeping dogs lie."
