A brand new adaptation of Stephen King’s most chilling novel, rather than a remake of the 1989 film, this all-new version of Pet Sematary digs deeper into every parent’s worst nightmare and captures the nightmarish tone of the book.
If you’re one of the few unfamiliar with the story, you’ll quickly deduce that a busy country trucking route, a pet cat, a toddler, a nine-year-old, and an ancient tribal burial ground with the power to raise the dead will add up to a whole lot of misery. In resurrecting Pet Sematary for a new generation, directors Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmeyer (Starry Eyes, 2014) bring grim atmosphere and a few nasty surprises – not least a bold twist likely to have purists hissing like an undead cat. More downbeat and horrifying than the ’89 film, it’s one of the better Stephen King adaptations.
