Has your cat ever looked at you the wrong way?
I didn’t think mine had until after I watched Stephen King’s Pet Sematary. Then, I couldn’t look at her the same for weeks. Was she plotting to kill me? I wouldn’t be able to tell.
Maybe I shouldn’t have watched this movie right before the full moon, because she was definitely acting strange. She clawed me out of the blue… What was going on?
Thankfully she returned to her normal, sharp and playful self, but Pet Sematary really threw me for a loop. It wasn’t even that scary to watch, but it left me with an uneasy feeling. I’ve read the book and watched the original movie, and it brought up a whole bunch of feelings I had experienced previously. Of course, back then I didn’t have a creepy feline in my house.
Have you ever wondered what a person would be like after bringing them back from the dead?
I can only imagine that after lacking oxygen for that long, things would be a little awry. But murderous? I’m not sure. Either way, if an old man invites you to bury your daughter’s cat and then you decide to bury your daughter to bring them back to life, it’s probably a bad omen.
Stephen King is a great writer, and he has taken me on many creepy and scary journeys through his novels. Pet Sematary sat on my mom’s shelf for a long time before I got the gusto to read it, and it is sure to impress.
The best part about Pet Sematary, and really many of King’s film adaptations, is that it doesn’t play up the gore. You don’t need a severed wound to give you that jump every time. Sometimes the storyline is just perfect and twisted enough.
I give Pet Sematary nine out of 10 popcorns.
