Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
Sometimes dead is better.
Dr. Louis Creed's family moves into the country house of their dreams and discover a pet cemetery at the back of their property. The cursed burial ground deep in the woods brings the dead back to life -- with "minor" problems. At first, only the family's cat makes the return trip, but an accident forces a heartbroken father to contemplate the unthinkable.
Now, I want to play with you...
I'm sorry, I'm a grown man and that little kid still freaks me the fuck out. Yes, the scenes where little Cage is clearly a stiff mannequin fighting with his father Louis are evident more today then ever before because of glorious high definition... but god damn look at what he did to Fred Gwynne! He was beloved Herman Munster for God's sake!
The bad parts of the film for me have transcended into camp and I am blind to anything critical. I did note this time around that the scene that seems to bother me most is seeing that big red 18 wheeler, as if it's this unstoppable indestructibly force of…
Fuck you Trey Parker for making me consistently laugh everytime I watch this film now. This is still in my top 5 favorite horror films.
I have seen this movie more times than I can keep track, tonight we decided to show my brother-in-law Pet Sematary because he had never seen it before. It was tonight, while watching it that I realized just how bad this movie is.
Often times nostalgia gives you these good feelings and clouds your judgement when it comes to seeing a movie for what it really is, unfortunately, nostalgia isn't helping Pet Sematary any longer. This movie isn't that terrible but the acting surely is horrible. It was really scary the first few times I watched this in the early 1990s but I was also pretty young then.
The way Ellie cries is like nails on a chalkboard for me. It never bothered me much before but now it's just horrendous. Everyone in the film is just really terrible.
What a bummer.
"Sometimes dead is better."
i was really into this + the book as a teen, and was pleasantly surprised to find it still made me want to barf but, like, in a good way all this time later. i don't know if it's the creepy images or the horror of grief or that goddamn indian burial ground on top of the end of the world that does it, but this story just kills me. yeah, this could have used some more style or better acting, and i can understand pretty much all the criticism, but i think we can also agree that fred gwynne and the ghost dude and the semetary itself are good as hell - right?
this fucking movie. that little kid looks way too much like my own daughter did at that age.
Pet Sematary is one of the most disturbing horror films ever made, and certainly the most tragic. Dealing with the loss of a child, and the gradual descent to madness as a result of that loss, it's depressing and wonderfully creepy. Sure, it's pretty dated and cheesy at points, but what every horror fan remembers is the imagery.
The Awesome: The imagery, the imagery, the imagery. Macabre, horrifying, creepy, startling, and just plain scary; Pet Sematary has moments that will sear into your mind. If you haven't seen the film, you won't believe some of the compositions in this one. Claustrophobic, tight and extremely intense, Pet Sematary has one of the greatest climaxes in horror history. It's that great, sending…
Extremely dated with its effects and cinematography overall (the scenes with Pascow are a stark example.) Some truly iconic scenes came out of this movie though, the Zelda and Achilles tendon slicing scenes in particular.
It really doesn't compare with the original book by Stephen King although few King movie adaptations do. I might be biased in that respect as I really enjoyed the book. The movie, as I've said, shows its age very clearly but it is still iconic in many ways and always worth a watch on a cold, dark, lonely Halloween night. Just hope that Zelda doesn't call out to you from downstairs....

Well,this was a very creepy ride. Saw it for the first time, the movie was sitting in my watchlist for a long time.
Great and creepy acting,interesting story. Really enjoyed the whole cat part and the dude with the brains hanging out of him,that was a pretty nice touch. The baby part was very,very creepy,maybe to much for others but good. And honestly there were 2 or 3 times when i got goosebumps and at least one time where i kinda jumped. Highly recommend to watch this alone in a dark room. And the ending.....well don't eat when you watch it :D Overall - A haunting,creepy and a truly good horror film. Definitely goes in my top horror movie list.
Dull enough to put even the most ardent of King fans to sleep.
I'm a big fan of the book, while this is a pretty faithful adaptation of the book, its filmic techniques and acting are laughably dated and melodramatic.

Movie #13 in my Magic & Murder March monthly marathon.
My goodness this blockbuster is rickety. But, far more often than it should, that really works to the film's advantage. And I can't really explain why. When you're a kid and you see this, it devastates you. You can't see all the paste-lacquered potholes in the walls and floors, you just see a happy family torn apart by a dimensional spillover of bad hoodoo from the nasty, vengeful spirits of a bunch of unhappily buried Indians. Wait, no. That's what I see today. When I was a kid, my mind fast-forwarded over all the ambient noise (which, ho! boy, there is a lot of) and just saw cute animals and people…
I would never say any Stephen King book is confusing. He has an easy style that's easy to read. It is true that The Stand from 1978 and Under the Dome from 2009 are both thousand pages novels and have a lot depth but with these books you have know to know what you are getting yourself into. Along with Cujo, Pet Sematary is King's simplest novel with both an easy plot and it is one of my favorite books of all times. The plot involves a family moving into rural Maine with the property right beyond an indian burial ground with a pet cemetery and the family does not know that the both are going to tear the family…
Eu não sei o que dizer desse filme. A primeira vista parece ser mais uma película genérica de terror dos anos 80. Mas tem tantos detalhes que passam desapercebidos para a maioria que acabo não sabendo por onde começar. Bom filme, sem duvida.
Some nice special effects and Herman Munster himself, the late great Fred Gwynne. Such a shame then, that overall it's a bit shit.
