Pet Sematary marks the first time Stephen King has adapted his own book for the screen, and the result is undead schlock dulled by a slasher-film mentality - squandering its chilling and fertile source material.

....leaden, morbid, rather nasty adaptation of Stephen King's novel...

One of the key lines in both film and book is "Sometimes dead is better." Sometimes, though, read is a whole lot better.

[Pet Sematary] has some effectively ghoulish moments, though most of these (like the suicide of a chronically depressed Maine laundress) have no particular point.

Literary success fails to make the leap to film again, with another hacked-up, sloppy screenplay from King.
