Films featuring jump scares created by a cat.
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.
Though never recognized as one of the best cinematic adaptations of Stephen King material, Mary Lambert's "Pet Sematary" has a lot to offer horror fans. A chilling, sometimes surreal nightmare of wish fulfillment and domestic tragedy, King's own screenplay and Lambert's direction combine for a worthy, high quality piece of horror. Effective atmosphere, well-placed gore, and rivulets of palpable terror set the stage for a film that is engaging, frightening, and memorable.
The story of a young family whose tragedy leads it down dark paths, "Pet Sematary" is a modern-day retelling of "The Monkey's Paw" dressed in a note of studio-horror polish and a touch of late-1980s hokiness. The narrative moves from the domestic to the supernatural with ease, culminating…
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.
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…
¿Por dónde empezar?
¿Por el inicio?
En la breve lista de qué películas marcaron mi infancia y me aterraron como ninguna otra siempre estará Pet Sematary. Recuerdo escabullirme al pasillos de horror en en videocentro y mirar la portada con un morbo incontrolable. Recuerdo que también tenía una copia de Fangoria con la película en la portada. Sus imágenes me intrigaban muchísimo. La foto de Pascow dejaba claro que esta era una película que jamás debería de ver.
Era una película maligna.
La vi de todos modos. Tenía unos 9 años.
No tantos años después mi hermano mayor me pasó una copia del libro. Fue el primer libro de King que leí (¿tal vez uno de los…
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…
Herman Munster warns about paths and roads. Tasha from TNG and her hubby clearly don't know how to look after two kids at once. Touches on heavy themes of loss and grief and what NOT to do (bury dead animals/ppl in an Indian burial ground).
A perfectly enjoyable terrible horror film. As good as a dead rat in our bathtub.
Though this Stephen King adaptation is often considered a misfire like many others, I personally think its one of the best and certainly one of the grisliest. Though some of the acting is a bit off, Pet Sematary perfectly captures the void-like blackness of the book's dealings with death and mourning without lacking or oversaturating the film with its required sentimentality. Plus, Zelda is still 100% the most horrifying character I've ever seen in a film; she warped my fragile little mind when I was younger and still does!
Stāstiņš šaušalīgs, pasniegums kā jau astoņdesmitajos, bet visšausmīgākais te ir galvenā aktiera tēlojums. Reālas šausmas!!! Nav brīnums, ka karjera neizvērsās...
Pats Kings ne tikai scenārists, bet arī macītāja lomā darbojas!
Being made in the era before CG doesn't make it good, but it helps.
Fred Gwynne, baby. Fred Gwynne.
A huge fan of the book I always remember seeing the scene where the child is hit by the truck and not watching any more of it. It was only in my 20s I managed to read the book as that scene had haunted me through most of my childhood. It's taken me like 25 years or something to finally sit down and watch this!
Alongside Carrie this is one of the only great adaptations of King's work.
I always remember in the book when things are getting way out of hand it has a fake section where he wakes up and his child wasn't killed and everything is fine. Then it turns…
Well it had 2 Ramones songs in it, so that deserves 2 stars. But the rest of the movie... Meh
Some very good and intense scenes and overall atmosphere, but also some flat moments and severly bad casting choices when it comes to the parents. On Imdb trivia it said Bruce Campbell should have played the father. That would have been way more awesome.
But anyways, it is a good flick and with an especially cool Pascow ghost.
Bad horror films are so weird for me — especially when they contain some actually effective moments. This has a couple instances that might fit well in a real, serious movie, but they're just extremely jarring when placed amid a slew of really bad cheesy scenes and bizarre throwaway one-liners. The movie veers quite unpredictably between camp and material that seems genuinely serious or disturbing. And Herman Munster is in it.
