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

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?
| Original Score: 4/5

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

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.

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