Horror Review: Pet Sematary (2019)

Pet Sematary (2019)

Do you read Stephen King? If you do, you’re one of millions of Constant Readers around the globe who follow his work. Books like IT and The Shining are having a revival as the 1980s and 1990s nostalgia hits hard in pop culture, and and King remains in the public eye as an example of a horror author who transcended the genre constraint and proved horror can be meaningful– something we horror fans always knew but that literary critics often dismissed before directors like Stanley Kubrick and Mary Lambert got hold of his work. Now you can find articles guiding readers to his best work, and tips from the master of horror himself for up and coming writers. He’s part of the zeitgeist.

Updated visuals appeal to modern horror audiences, making this a strong year for Stephen King’s brand of horror.

This also means his books, many already made into dubious films, are being remade for modern audiences by fans. However, the original Pet Sematary (1989), directed by Mary Lambert, is considered by many a horror classic. Can the remake hold up? Does it offer anything new?
