Pet Sematary (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Pet Sematary 2019 is an odd film.  I get what it was trying to do as a film, but starting off by marketing yourself as from ‘The Writer Of IT’ already tells you this is going for the mainstream.  I kinda liked the somewhat janky 1989 Pet Sematary, it was pretty edgy for it’s time and did a lot with it’s modest budget.  The 2019 version makes some odd choices and whilst I kinda liked the ending the journey was pretty unsatisfactory.  Thing is it’s just felt like another modern day horror – Part Ring, part Annabel, part whatever and a lot of the charm of King’s book is lost.  So personally I’d stick with the original…

Best Bit: The ending
