Review of Sem ' Pet Sematary ’: A Disturbing New View of Stephen King Classic

Stephen King is very productive monumentally, even now, five decades in his career, making it difficult to reach the top of the bibliography. But critics and fans agree that his 1983 novel "Sematary Pet" is something special, and especially terrible. The story of an interesting American family found terror in a new house believed to be married to the frightened Edgar Allan Poe, his neck stiff with the insane atmosphere of the EC's horror comics of the 1950s.

Faith, Louis and Rachel and their children, Ellie and Gage, moved to rural Maine and found out their possessions including hideous burial grounds for pets, and behind that, even more sinister burial grounds where people loved ones interred "back," as the neighbor of the creed said, Jud. Louis and Jud tried it on a family cat killed by a truck. That didn't work well. Then other things don't work out well.

Novel King was adapted for screen in 1989. Directed by Mary Lambert, "Pet Sematary" is a wild and squirrel-eyed film. This version is smoother in Hollywood. This is played by Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz, John Lithgow and especially Jeté Laurence as young Ellie. Director Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer, showing confusing distrust of their strong source material, weighed on the film with fear of arbitrary jumping. And they replaced King's tragic despair with something more eloquent.
But when they settle in a plot that is in harmony with the novel, this film provides a great shock that approaches the power of the King's vision. I also appreciate the respect and good taste of the choice of filmmakers' cover songs, the blazing cover of Starcrawler from the Ramones theme of the original film.

Correction: April 4, 2019
The previous version of this review incorrectly refers to who played the theme song at the end of the film. That's Starcrawler, not Joan Jett.
