Pet Sematary Two Reviews
"Raise Some Hell."
Pet Sematary Two was surprising because it wasn't nearly as horrible as I thought it would be. It's still bad, but it has its entertaining parts. It doesn't make much sense to make a remake of Pet Sematary, but it happened, and it could have turned out much worse. Comparatively to the first one, it's not as creepy(and the first one wasn't that creepy).
This one has a whole lot going on when nothing is going on. The movie is weird, goofy and over the top. The plot is slightly more ridiculous than that of the first, but nothing new is really established; just more of it. Basically it's the first movie, but uses the end of the first movie and makes it pretty much the whole film. There are a lot more deaths and a lot more blood and the whole thing comes off as a mess.
It isn't scary and they try to make up for that by making it funny, when it should be scary. Sometimes it works to an extent, but most of the time it just comes off as annoying. There's a lot of family drama involved like in the original, but it isn't used as well and most of it just comes off as laughable.
What I did like about this more than the first was that the acting was better. I know that isn't saying that much. I liked Edward Furlong in his role as the grieving young kid. On a whole the movie isn't good at all. It makes no effort to stand apart from the first and really is just a bad sequel of a not so great horror film.
It has all the corny lines, bad acting, hilarious "scares" that any fan of cheesy 80s and 90s horror films will could want.
It even has a tough kid with a dangling cross earring. How could you ask for more?
