FULL REVIEW: CONTAINS SPOILERS


VERDICT

Pet Sematary is a simple yet disturbing horror story that deviates a little too much from its thrilling source material. While the scares are clean and the cast bring some chilling performances in this icy atmosphere, the all too-literal narrative overpromises a scary story beyond its horror elements creating an uneven pacing with underdeveloped and bland subplots beyond its generic plot.

★★★★★★☆☆☆☆ 6/10 – Consider
