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.
If you're looking for an antidote to Disney and Marvel, then toughen up for this one. We get only a vague idea of what exactly caused this family to move to "the sticks" in search of a better life. The couple seems to be carrying their own neurotic baggage as the movie begins, and things only worsen when their neighbor, a grizzled John Lithgow, introduces them to Pet "you-know- what," located alarmingly close by. This version of King's novel is so much better than the original, that it's difficult to complain about the new emphasis on the wife's character, which I think is an added touch - and may actually be a good thing, since it suggests the seeds of the horror have been planted years before the script begins - at least for her. Make no mistake about it, though, as hard as it is to watch, it does have a cathartic effect : your own troubles will pale in comparison.
