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.

A Unique and fun remake
7 April 2019 | by aidanratesmoviesSee all my reviews

Pet Sematary nails its atmosphere and tone in a perfectly sinister Stephen King esc way, and makes for a very interesting ride. Though the pacing of the film may seem a bit slow at times, when the film picks up its feet, it grabs your heart easily and makes for one of the most enjoyable horror flicks of recent days. Nearly every actor in this film deserves some credit, especially that of John Lithgow as Jutt and Jason Clarke as the father of the family. The daughter also does a pretty great job at her truly horrifying and changing character, and Church the cat once again remains a very prominent horror figure. The music in the film provided for some fabulous suspense, and the overall look captured was unique and quite fitting. In all, Pet Sematary may not be the most original film this year, or the most unpredictable (as the trailers pretty much spoiled everything), but it certainly is an interesting ride, and provides an experience that is nearly unforgettable. My Rating: 9/10
