This a silly movie, also overwrought, fusing the two until it approaches something grand and gonzo and tragic and meaningful.
March 3, 2014
Without any real scares, there's no reason at all for this movie to exist.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
August 5, 2013
A silly and tedious horror drama...
May 20, 2013
It bombs despite King adapting the screenplay from his novel.

October 5, 2012
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
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
September 20, 2012
...one of the most witless horror movies I've sat through, essentially a zombie ghost story that's wholly predictable throughout.

October 16, 2008
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?

Could have been better, but still worth to take a look

Eeeek! A junky book becomes a dreadful movie
| Original Score: 0/5
July 14, 2003
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
March 19, 2003
Fairly effective adaptation of the Stephen King thriller.
| Original Score: 3/5

Another awful Stephen King adaption.
| Original Score: 1/5
December 1, 2002
So bad it's funny. Gwynne seems to be hawking Pepperidge Farm cookies.
| Original Score: 3/5
July 25, 2002
A dull Stephen King adaptation that is neither scary or enjoyably dumb.
| Original Score: 1/5
July 25, 2001
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."
