Excerpt: A mix of a contemporary adaptation of the classic Stephen King novel and a remake of the 1989 horror film, Pet Sematary ultimately fails to produce any genuine scares or engage audiences with sincere characters worth sympathizing for. Despite the production coming with a few admirable aspects, this horror feature is dead on arrival.
Excerpt: A lazy adaptation of the Stephen King novel, manipulatively cheap when it isn’t provoking eye-rolls at its genre banalities. Why can’t someone find the right role for the charismatic Jason Clarke?
Excerpt: What 2019’s “Pet Sematary” somewhat lacks in emotional devastation makes up for it by being vicious in all the right ways and doing little to compromise or hold back on the dark themes at work in Stephen King’s novel.
