Pet Sematary [is a] fable fueled by a sense of culpability for things that aren't always explained.
April 5, 2019
Directors Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer make the tone just a little cheesy, as the premise deserves, but not overripe. The scares are easy -- sometimes literally a cat jumping from the shadows -- but cleanly done.

"Pet Sematary" addresses issues of death and our unwillingness to accept it in a fun, frank manner. The dead don't always have it this good.

Hidden within the deep recesses of Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmye's not-that-scary movie is a really compelling film about death, unfortunately they're tasked with a bland, way too literal script to be able to make it.

This may look like the same story, but the soul of it is missing-lost on the way out of the ground.

Directors Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer spend waaaay too much time going for tension-building walks through creepy places and not nearly enough developing the stories that would have made this Stephen King adaption put the screws to the soul.

It's one of my favorite King adaptations. And proves that sometimes dead isn't better. But that could just be the Pet Sematary talking.

Pet Sematary is a tale with some fascinating themes and ethics, but I don't feel like any of them are here in this remake.
July 10, 2019
This is a well-made adaptation to the source material, but it may be so professional that it becomes a little bit generic.

It can be hard, sometimes, to be afraid of a demonic being that lacks opposable thumbs.
