Movie Monday is a feature here on my blog, in which I’m rambling about movies I’ve watched lately.
This week I watch a new version of Pet Sematary, a movie based on the novel by Stephen King.
If you know me, you know I appreciate good horror.
And because I watch so many movies from that genre, I like to think I can recognize the good one.
This, my friends, was a good horror.
We all know about Pet Sematary, or at least, most of us have heard of it before. It is a well known novel by Stephen King, and there is also a movie from late ’80s (that even got a sequel).
There are also so many references in other books and movies considering this story.
I have watched the original version of the movie few years ago, and I remember that I liked the idea of the story, but the movie itself didn’t win me 100%.
It was a bit silly and, as strange as it sounds, unrealistic (here I talk about 2 year old fighting adults with straight of a professional wrestler), but overall, it was a good story.
When I heard the new version was coming out I was pretty excited.
After watching the trailer and realizing there were more elements to the story, I was bumped, I knew I had to watch it.
Pet Sematary didn’t disappoint. No, I was thrilled! It was so much better then I expected, and it brought to the table so much more then the previous version.
It is also different then the first movie, and because I haven’t read the book, I don’t know which movie follows the actual story (if you do know, please enlighten me).
In this movie we got to see more to the characters, learn their past and really get to know them.
My favourite character was the cat, which in my opinion wasn’t evil at all. Or at least, Church wasn’t THAT evil (he even reminds me of my GiGi). Every time there were scenes featuring him, my mood would just lighten up. I guess that’s because I’m a cat lover.
Overall, I would definitely recommend Pet Sematary because it is the best horror movie I have watched in 2019.
