Pet Sematary Reviews

April 19, 2019
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.
April 5, 2019
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.
April 5, 2019
In its attempt to breathe new life into the iconic title while respectfully paying homage to its legacy, the new iteration of "Pet Sematary" overpromises and underdelivers.

The time has come to bury Pet Sematary once and for all.

Watching Fred Gwynne nail a Maine accent and spout cheesy dialogue is much more entertaining than this movie's monotonous series of lame jump scares.

Although Pet Sematary is a largely dreadful film, it is slightly better and never as offensively bad as the first version.
