My Idea of a Stephen King Movie Remake

Let me just say, out of all of the Stephen King movies and remakes (and trust me with a boyfriend like mine, that means I’ve seen a lot), Pet Sematary freaked me out the most. I don’t necessarily mean in a scary, thriller type movie way, but in a rip your heart out, bawl like a baby kind of way.

The actors were a great portrayal of the original cast from the 1989 film. Gage in the 2019 version looks almost identical to the actor from the original cast. I really enjoyed the graphics and how realistic it looked in a extreme gore sense. That is a wonderful benefit that we have with modern technology, along with great artists creating the images. Even the subtle connections to other King stories makes me appreciate it that much more.

I apologize if this is a spoiler for anyone who hasn’t had the chance to see Pet Sematary yet. I will try not to go into too much detail, but the twist that occurs in the 2019 movie is the part that got me the most. I am not the type to cry over movies (even though I must say the older I get the more emotional I get), but this one was a real tearjerker for me. Now not to say the first one wasn’t with the death of Church and the other deaths, but the newer film has a certain emotional pull to it and as much as I hate to admit, made me cry major crocodile tears.

I have to say out of all the movies I’ve watched this year, this is one of the top movies I have seen. Stephen King is a classic, the movies never disappoint, and the remakes have been incredibly successful. Highly recommended!
