(This is Pet Sematary film review, which is a film based on the Stephen King’s horror novel)

Recently lots of Stephen King‘s novels have been translated into movies such as It, The Dark Tower and Gerald’s Game. And Pet Sematary is just the latest of the trend.

But not all of the adaptations are successful. Some like IT is a cultural phenomenon while others like The Dark Tower was a bomb in the box office. It is directed by relatively unknown directors Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer. It stars Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz, and John Lithgow.

Without further ado, let’s check out how it fares in the Pet Sematary film review below!

 

Premise

When a family moves into a new home, little would they realise that a unique graveyard exist behind it that can revive dead people. Will they survive the happenings that might kill all of them before it’s too late?

Pet Sematary Film Review

This movie has been getting pretty average scores and I was almost going to give it a miss but I actually like it quite a bit?

Plotwise, a complaint I heard is that the first half takes too long and while I agree that the pacing at the start is a bit slow, they did actually introduce certain mystery/horror elements which made me take an interest in the story pretty early on(I was kind of falling asleep at the start as I was quite tired). Other than that, I would say I quite enjoyed the story beats and the audience members in my theatre genuinely gasped in horror for some of them.

Character wise, I felt like they were all kind of interesting and had interesting backstories. The only one lacking a backstory is oddly the main character but he goes through quite a bit of internal turmoil due to certain decisions he made.

I think the sound design is pretty good and really adds to the horror aspect of the film. There were a few “jump scares” but even those I felt weren’t cheap ones and were tastefully done. This film is pretty good at building tension and then going in for the scare to be honest.

It's Okay!
Just a decent adaptation of Stephen King's novel!
Pet Sematary takes some cues from the book as its inspirations, but some of the changes in film directions do more harm than good for it to be faithful enough to the original work.

I try to be as impartial as possible and generally will be optimistic towards my scoring of a film so if I give a low review…well, it’s bad.
