September 20, 2012 of the most witless horror movies I've sat through, essentially a zombie ghost story that's wholly predictable throughout.

It bombs despite King adapting the screenplay from his novel.

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

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

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."
| Original Score: 40/100

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

This a silly movie, also overwrought, fusing the two until it approaches something grand and gonzo and tragic and meaningful.

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

Fairly effective adaptation of the Stephen King thriller.

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.
