Forget this is a sequel and you'll like it
14 August 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I like this movie. Has a few flaws though. First is; Yeah, I'll agree, a sequel to the original Pet Semetary isn't as the best of ideas. In the original, all the main characters bar one are dead so you can't use them so it will have to be a brand new story with brand new characters. As it is a brand new story, treat it as such and you will enjoy it. Like in many movies, I try to place myself in them and work out what I would do. OK I wouldn't have buried Gus nor the dog and nothing would have gone wrong but that would render the movie pointless.

In making it, I would have left out the doggie dream and given Drew and his mother a better chance to survive. Said enough there.

More gory, not as scary as the original but worth a look.
