    Could be good.

    That's mostly raves by fanboy blogs. (Is anybody surprised that Dread Central and Bloody Disgusting gave this a "fresh" rating?)

    I'm gonna wait for you guys to see it first and then decide

    Bloody Disgutsing is a blog that any one can submit to. They have ZERO credibility. They exist only to try to get shit quotes on dvd covers.

    HOW DOES THIS ONE STACK UP AGAINST OTHER STEPHEN KING ADAPTATIONS?
    One of the best Stephen King adaptations in the past decade.
    – Monica Castillo, The Wrap

    Not merely a solid entry to the long list of films based on King’s work; it joins the ones sitting at the top as one of the very best.
    – Perri Nemiroff, Collider

    Pet Sematary is one of the best Stephen King adaptations ever.
    – Chris Evangelista, Slashfilm

    A solid if not earthshaking horror pic built around notably good performances.
    – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter

    A bloodless bastardization of its source material that sinks under its own uninspired storytelling and horror movie cliches.
    – Bryan Rolli, The Daily Dot

    HOW DOES IT COMPARE TO THE 1989 VERSION?
    Sometimes, different is better.
    – Dan Caffrey, Consequence of Sound

    The 1983 novel sees the adaptation it’s always deserved.
    – Jonathan Barkan, Dread Central

    The new Pet Sematary pushes the envelope, and then some, going further than King even dared. The fact that this is a studio film is both surprising, and thrilling.
    – Chris Evangelista, Slashfilm

    This Pet Sematary is more effective than the previous adaptation, at least until the climax.
    – Britt Hayes, IndieWire

    They’re not doing nearly enough to distinguish this version from the one that came before.
    – Peter Debruge, Variety




    I'm a pretty big fan of the '89 version, but there's certainly room for improvement in the acting and SFX department. I'll probably see this opening weekend.
