Dr. Louis Creed and his wife, Rachel, relocate from Boston to rural Maine with their two young children. The couple soon discover a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near their new home.
A priest with a haunted past and a novice on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate the death of a young nun in Romania and confront a malevolent force in the form of a demonic nun.
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson's case, by shouting out one word - SHAZAM. - this streetwise fourteen-year-old foster kid can turn into the grown-up superhero Shazam.
Louis Creed, his wife Rachel, and their two children, Gage and Ellie, move to a rural home where they are welcomed and enlightened about the eerie 'Pet Sematary' located nearby. After the tragedy of their cat being killed by a truck, Louis resorts to burying it in the mysterious pet cemetery, which is definitely not as it seems, as it proves to the Creeds that sometimes, dead is better.
Before starting his new job, Louis mentions that his previous occupation was working the "Graveyard Shift", at the emergency room, a nod to the Stephen King novel and 1990 movie of the same name. See more »
When the tanker truck swerved to avoid Gage the trailer becomes detached from the tractor which leads to the tragic death.
However, in real life this would not have happened, and the whole truck unit would have simply crashed into the ditch. See more »
Paramount Pictures Australia submitted a 98 minute version of Pet Sematary which gained an MA15+ rating. Presumably this version was pre-cut in an attempt to gain a lower M rating. As with Overlord, Paramount Pictures Australia decided to release the uncut version instead which also gained an MA15+ rating. See more »
Watched it at a pre screening and...now this is what I call a horror movie. The acting was pretty good, there were several emotional aspects at play and I really liked the way they dealt with themes like PTSD and grief.
About the horror part, somes scenes were grotesque and there were a lot of jumpscares and tension building, but I'm not going to spoil anything.
Final thoughts: I didn't watch any trailers and from what I could see, most complaints came from people who have watched them. Also, I find it laughable that a weak slasher movie like "Us" gets a better rating than this movie, which in my opinion, is way, way better.
Veredict: I'd say "Pet Sematary" is at least a solid 8, but I gave it a 9 because I strongly disagree with the current 7.0 rating.
