Storyline

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.

During Ellie's birthday party, Jud can be heard in the background saying, "There was a big Saint Bernard. He got rabies...". This is an obvious reference to Cujo (1983), another movie based on a Stephen King novel. See more »

Grounded, raw and personal
11 April 2019 | by sophaljonesySee all my reviews

Pet Sematary 2019 is a much superior to the original in my opinion because it manages to stay grounded, raw, and make it personal. It lays the ground rules of how Pet Sematary works, and most of the scares come from the feeling of dread coming from those giant trucks zooming past the characters. These scenes worked as both jump scares but foreshadows of what will happen, and it is chilling given that in my country Cambodia, people are killed by trucks so frequently. The supernatural aspect is creepy enough, but most of the scares come from real things such as those cars, grief, and the dark thoughts of the characters. Besides this feeling of groundedness, the death pivotal death scene is very raw, and you feel exactly how the characters do. The death, the grief, and the lengths the characters go to deal with their problems is all to real, and this produces the raw feeling from watching. On top of all that, Pet Sematary impacts me very hard because I have lost my brother in a car accident, and the grief in the characters, and their guilt is very personal and relatable. So for me, Pet Sematary is a horror movie unlike any others because it is so real, raw, and personal.
