Pet Sematary Review
Written by: The Creature
Plot: For most families, moving is the new beginning. But for the Creeds, it could be the beginning of the end. Because they've just moved in next door to a place that children built with broken dreams, the Pet Sematary. It's a tiny patch of land that hides a mysterious indian burial ground with powers of resurrection. (From the DVD cover).
Pet Sematary is one of my favorite horror films. It's in my top 15, at least. I first watched the film when I four, and it scared the SHIT out of me. After that, I watched Pet Sematary over and over again until I got tired of it and started on something new. But to this day, the film is still a favorite of mine. Why? Because it's one of the few films that actually scare me. I never jump or get frightened during a horror film because I know that what is on screen is not real. However, Pet Semetary is an exception. It's mostly the thought "Sometimes dead is better" that does a number on me.
A round of applause goes to Elliot Goldenthal, for making one of the creepiest score music pieces in horror history. The opening cemetary scene creeped me the hell out.
I've read the Stephen King novel too, which is one of my favorite books. I suggest you pick it up for a good read. King, you're the man. Oh, and Mary Lambert, you're the woman. Lambert did a great job delivering a balls out creepy horror film.
Pet Sematary get's a 9/10 and a letter grade of an A-
