Book vs Movie review- Pet Semetary

Okay so I'm sure everyone has either seen the movie or read the book. Its a classic by Stephen king, and scared the crap out of me as a child.


So, if you don't know already the plot line is that theres a graveyard beyond the local pet cemetery that if you bury something that has died, it comes back. But once they come back they don't come back quite right. I watched this movie when I was about..7 or 8. It terrified me when I was little, I couldn't sleep for days. Then  I rewatched it as an adult. And was still pretty creeped the fuck out by it. Mainly because;










For an older movie, it has some pretty creepy special effects.  The movie was really fucking creepy, I'd give it a 8/10


Now I read the book as a kid too, but my vocabulary wasn't that great so I always had a dictionary to try to understand what they were talking about. So I read it a few weeks ago. It was still creepy, some parts were left out from the movie like all of stephen kings movies made into books, but some parts they left out weren't really that important. Though I do wish they would have added a few scenes with gage they left out...  But I give it a 7/10 (Like my opinion matters xD)  But I'd really recommend both of them.


Also, there is talk of a remake of this move, Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and Matt Greenberg are suppose to have a hand in screenwriting and such..I hope they don't fuck it up like they've fucked up other classics.

  1. This trend of remaking class movies should stop. They just keep ruining movies and 80s franchises.

  3. The first one is a decent horror film classic. The sequel on the other hand, isn't that great at all, rather cheap looking and poorly written.

  6. i made a post involving this movie, small world.. and as for the remake, i heard it was because Stephen King was disappointed with the film version, so these guys are going to try to do it justice. Like you said, hopefully they dont fuck it up. and fuck Zelda....

  8. Most remakes end up being pretty cruddy. Well, I liked The Lady Killers and the Dawn of the Dead remake. I've seen this announced on tv but I never thought it'd be worth it. Next time I'll actually give it a try.

  12. Actually think i missed both of these but ill have to take a look. And usually when it comes to his movies his books are usually 10 times better. This might be an exception.
