Rating: 4.5/5 -- King turns the mirror on humanity, questioning our faith, our belief, our methods of expelling grief from our lives. And it isn't always a pretty sight. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- Reduced to its plot outlines, King`s work no longer functions; its meaning lies in the obscure tensions and anxieties that shape the fantasy, not in what happens, but why. Full Review

Rating: 1.5/5 -- Without any real scares, there's no reason at all for this movie to exist. Full Review

As a metaphor for the terrible decisions people make and never learn, Pet Sematary maintains a building sense of dread. Full Review

...Peter Stein's cinematography is superbly varied, from the bright hues of a glossy magazine to the dark shadows of a charnel house....PET SEMATARY is a handsomely produced film...

Rating: 2/4 -- ...a misbegotten adaptation that could (and should) have been so much better... Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- The premise is fascinating, but the leaden direction, weak performances from the leads, and King's frequently campy interludes pretty much sink this one. Full Review

Product Description:

Director Mary Lambert's (THE IN CROWD) second film is a very underrated rendering of a Stephen King bestseller. In it a young family, the Creeds have recently moved to a new neighborhood where they very quickly lose their cat, which is run over by a speeding truck. The Creed's neighbor, Jud (Fred Gwynne), feeling bad for the family, tells Mr. Creed (Dale Midkiff) about the secret Indian burial ground in the neighborhood, which has mysterious rejuvenating powers. However, when the Creed's infant son meets a fate similar to the family pet, Mr. Creed can't resist temptation and he brings an unspeakable evil back from the grave.

Plot Synopsis:

Dr. Louis Creed, having just moved to Maine with his wife and two children, is heartbroken when he finds that his daughter's beloved cat has been hit by a truck and killed. Thankfully, a strange, elderly neighbor called Jud knows a secret that may spare the young girl's tears. He takes the dead cat to an ancient Indian burial ground that lies hidden in the surrounding hilltops; and when he buries the feline there, it comes back to life a few days later.
But Louis can't be trusted with the secret, and, despite strong warnings that something horrible will happen, he uses the power of the burial ground to bring his son back from the dead -- after the child is killed the same way the family cat was.
