Storyline Heading
Louis Creed, his wife Rachel and their two children Gage and Ellie move to a rural home where they are welcomed and enlightened about the eerie 'Pet Sematary' located nearby. After the tragedy of their cat being killed by a truck, Louis resorts to burying it in the mysterious pet cemetery, which is definitely not as it seems, as it proves to the Creeds that sometimes, dead is better.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Horror Thriller - This is a horror film based on the Stephen King novel, and as such is not for kids even though a child is at the center of the story. The target is the younger adult horror core. Jason Clarke fans should enjoy though John Lithgow's role is only a small supporting ones. There is graphic violence involving children and animals as well as strong language.

Critic's Review Heading

NY Post Full Review
Above Average ...doesn't get creative enough with the haunting images that were so memorable in King's book. And when making a movie out of this story, you absolutely must get creative... Although mostly routine, "Pet Sematary” is intermittently scary.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Good ...a blood-curdling chiller that adds new twists to King's novel yet stays incredibly faithful to its dark spirit. Smartphones and other products of the digital age have been added, but the plot trots along the same surface... ...while the remake has its fair share of laughs, the humor is cutting, not campy...

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average While there are a few narrative deviations from the original story...none of them are really significant or meaningful enough to warrant much afterthought. The new ending, in particular, is a headscratcher of a twist
