"Pet Sematary," is about a family the Creeds, who find out that on their property is a cursed cemetery that brings back your loved ones but it comes at an expense. The story comes from the mind of horror master, Stephen King and his story went on film from the director, Mary Lambert, who did a good job at making the book into a film. She got the heart of the story and the point enough to make it entertaining. Its a generally creepy film that does tug at the heart even.
Jud Crandall: You've done it you stupid old man. Now you've got to undo it.
So you can go on Netflix watch the movie tonight and pick up the novel and read that too, for some extra creepiness. "Pet Sematary" is like the modern take of "The Monkey's Paw," meets any Indian burial story you've read. The story is, be careful of what you wish for and when something dies, let nature takes it place even how bad it hurts.
Victor Pascow: The barrier was not meant to be crossed. The ground is sour.
So "Pet Sematary" is the pick for 31 days of 80s horror on Netflix is,
