The "sematary" is up to its old zombie-raising tricks again. This time, the protagonists are Jeff Matthews, whose mother died in a Hollywood stage accident, and Drew Gilbert, a boy coping with an abusive stepfather.
Too much of everything
The performances transcend the film's tropes, grounding it in characters that feel more complete than this subgenre often produces.
The film makes a home in your brain and the only cure is to see it again.
it has good songs, good cast and a lot of dark humor. it is not a new adaptation of novel but a sequel who propose new road. it represents a good occasion for Edward Furlong to do a decent job and for Edward Anthony to escape from the circle of well - known series. and, more important, the film is the right arena for Clancy Brown to use his great talent for a role who dominate the film. Pet Sematery is not a hidden place but becomes almost the heart of town. the life after the death is presented more complex . the implication of the children is profound because the two friends are responsible for the build of order in community. it is not exactly only a horror but a fantasy movie. more Stand by me than Shining.
PS2 is a sequel I like, nastier than the first, some thanks to some really unpleasant characters, one being a teen bully, Clyde, a standout performance, while another originally bad dude who's possessed, is that of local copper, Clancy Brown. It has shocking and refreshing catalyst, where Furlong's star Mum (Fluegel) is horribly electrocuted at the start, so Furlong and Dad, (Edwards (Top Gun-Goose) a vet- what a coincidence move to the wrong town, where the story of the original is redone, but a spin has been put on it. Furlong making a new friend, tries to resurrect his cat on an Indian burial ground, and guess what happens. More violent than the first, again there's a not so happy ending, but I so like this nastier film, where Brown and Clyde, are unforgettable. For fans of the first, PS 2 is a good sequel, that really works, and should not be overlooked.
Pet Sematary 2 isn't exactly what I'd call bad, but it's really unnecessary. Whether or not it follows the book or the original movie is beside the point, even on its own it just doesn't have what it takes to be a captivating horror movie. The acting was okay but unmemorable, the plot was more for preteens even though the movie was aimed at adults, and the soundtrack was lame. With sequels and remakes there are always going to be duds, and this is one of 'em. At least the ending credits had a good song, by The Ramones, but if you're looking for a really good horror movie this definitely isn't the first one that would come to my mind.
OK now i know that a lot of people hated this movie but i thought it was good i prefer to watch this one compared to the original one if i am honest. Anyway acting could have been better storyline was more or less kind of the same (people and animals die are buried then come back)the movie does flaw in places but then again no movie is perfect. I also found that this one was easier to follow than the first one was so with that being said i would rate this movie a 7 out of 10. And apparently i have to write 3 more lines ummm cant really think of anything to say but i think that its pretty stupid you should just be able to write what you want then post in instead of having to drag it out for 10 lines.
