The dull moments aren't helped any by leads Jason Clarke and Amy Seimetz, who are both low-energy.

However, the second half is just a meaningless movie of walking dead.

Also, the main character felt so boring and had very little backstory to him, so there was little connection between him and the audience, whereas the wife character, played by Amy Seimetz had a really horrific past to her and felt more stretched out, so it's a shame that she had less screen time.

The slowest scenes are the bits before the family members get reanimated and by the time we hit the halfway point, I was wondering if we were running out of time.

Awful, boring, slow paced, not scary in the slightest, boring characters, boring actors.

This movie is rushed, with wooden and uncovincing acting, and I couldn't even finish it because how boring it was

Especially the dad just feels bland.

The film makes a big accent of the things we were afraid as children, and I, personally, find it great, definitely worth watching, and remember never to cross the line.

Let's just say that the 1st hour is a BORE FEST, Characters make dumb decisions and express feelings "out of the sudden".

Best trailer for the worst movie .

This movie was so boring and predictable.

So intriguing and shocking.

Unnecessary and Bland .

Plus the cliffhanger ending is formulaic and contrived.

Pointless Remake .

A remake worth watching.

Though the pacing of the film may seem a bit slow at times, when the film picks up its feet, it grabs your heart easily and makes for one of the most enjoyable horror flicks of recent days.

Completely ridiculous, save your money.

This movie is not really scary, but it is intriguing.

The scares were far too predictable, and anyone who has seen any sub par horror film in the last 10 years will be disappointed by the complete lack of suspense created.

This movie had me on the edge of my seat the entire time.

Worst movie .

The film was also much too fast paced, and would hardly give you time to sit and think about what the characters were saying or what was happening before hurrying on to the next thing.

The film itself feels very disjointed.

In the end there really isn't much to say about it, it was just a very bland and forgettable Stephen King adaptation.

If you haven't seen the original, this is worth watching.

Dont waste your money and only waste your time, when you can watch it at home for free.

An Interesting Idea But A Dull Execution .

It's alright, but very predictable .

A very drawn out and somewhat ineffective new adaptation that squanders potential .

The scariest element Rachel/Zelda story was what I was expecting to benefit most from a remake and they pussied out on showing it, yet they show a creepily drawn out scene of a father strangling/straddling his 9 year old daughter.

Plus the ending is so predictable it doesn't even make you care.

All the scenes were too predictable and was lacking the wow factor...

The first 3/4's goes slow and the last 1/4 is completely rushed.

I wanted either a more exciting climax or it to just end really.

It was very slow to develop.

If you talk about pointless remakes that never should have made it off of the concept idea drawing board, then the 2019 "Pet Sematary" is definitely one of the high ranking movies.

Even though his character is the most boring - which is attributable to the writing - Clarke is able to develop his character past the limitations posed onto him.

An Empty Tomb .

Yes, they used a puppet for some shots in 1989, but they also had the real kid playing Gage do some pretty intense stuff and nothing in this new version comes close.

It was just uninteresting and flat scripting.

Don't waste your money .

The final act shows that the filmmakers can create tension and actually make things engaging, and luckily this section of the film exists.

Kinda slow movie with a great final act .

If that is the case than that explains the very slow burn which ends in complete pay off.

It was an enjoyable remake that should make most people happy.

I was left feeling disappointed and bored.


It was an enjoyable movie with a sold cast, good soundtrack, and good directing.

Can get boring, predictable, and expands only a little on the 1989 movie

Better than I thought, worth watching .

Instead it was a slow plodding story line (it almost put me to sleep!!!

Bland and forgettable.

The role of Pascow the ghost is pointless with his 3-5 minutes of screen time.

Don't want to put in any spoilers, but seriously, don't waste your time.

I am a fan of the original, I've never read the book, but this film is really entertaining.

Saying that, none of the cast - bar John Lithgow, who is one of the saving graces of the first two-thirds - are really all that engaging.

The scares are mostly noise and the third act of the film is drawn out with such terrible execution.

Waste of time...

I fell asleep in the theater, I wasted my money on this!!!

Pet Sematary is one of my all-time favourite novels and while I've never been overwhelmed by the '80s adaptation, at the very least it was entertaining and felt like they put in a decent effort.

It's all a bit bland .

Most of the movie looks cheap and basic and the fact that they changed the storyline to Ellie dying instead of Gage is just confusing.

This doesn't deserve any rating, it's just awful garbage and was a huge waste of my time.

Furthermore, this movie still manages to be exciting and the tragedy scenes hit you really hard.

It's worth watching so just watch and don't be a jerk.

really makes for a compelling character.

Save your money, wait for the DVD

Most of the film felt like one long drawn out jump scare followed by the next, it dragged on at points which is a bad feeling in a movie that's less than 2hrs long.

Because seriously, you all just don't get what makes his books so great, so terrifying and so engrossing.

Bland .

Don't waste your time.

Suspenseful and creepy, Pet Sematary is a worthy adaptation of Stephen King's novel and is considerably better made than the dated original, which is not saying too much.

Another pointless remake.

The first forty-five minutes of the film is essentially a massive set-up for the whole idea within the film, and whilst one of my favourite scenes in the film occurs within this, the whole period within the film just felt very boring and was just exposition with little inserts of scary sequences.

All the cinematography and settings were stunning and you can tell that Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer, the directors of the movie, took their time to make sure that everything looked right in the shots.

Walk out of the theater bad .

Go away dull soulless remake, die already 💀

A lot of changes made the movie feel empty, not enough character development, probably because of the lack of time.

Nevertheless, it's still an enjoyable horror film that takes itself and the source material seriously, and will no doubt please both fans of the novel and original film.

Needless to say it was SLOW, very NOT scary, and the remade title song originally performed by the Ramones is a complete travesty!

Don't waste you're time watching this.

Firstly relying on too many predictable jump scares.

I was so excited to see the pre-screening, but it was boring, dreary and not worth watching at the movies.

Just plain dumb and dreadfully boring.

Yawn-Worthy .

Sadly the movie was kinda slow and I fell asleep but it worth watching.

How they took that source material and made so boring is actually quite impressive.

After making the bland and cliché 'Truth or Dare' last spring, this director became the screenwriter of this adaptation.

It's not too scary at all, the plot twist is predictable

I highly recommend it.

I watched over 200 movies in the last 3 years in the theaters and its the 1st time i walked out that's how bad it is

What few jump scares there were and in fact, every turn in the plot, you could see coming a mile off and to top it all off, a very abrupt and dull ending.


The film is not bad at all, it is still extremely entertaining and at times very creepy.

Jason Clarke as Louis was fine, it's just that his character was so bland in this and I just wanted him to leave.

A good drama with elements of horror turned into a boring massacre with a comic ending.

Maybe it's just me, but I found this movie to be boring.

Over-hyped, boring, cliched, stupid, don't waste your money.

I understand not wanting to copy the first film but at least try to stick close to the material and not go bananas and put one of the most cliche, boring, retarded endings this year has to offer.

Just plain boring and the ending are...

The acting was boring and predictable.

Maybe that's also why they added those cliche masks.

I think this one was definitely more suspenseful and entertaining compared to the original and has an excellent ending paving the way for a potential sequel if the right story can be put together.

If you like Stephen King and weird intense movies, this is the one for you.

there was no atmosphere to this movie, it felt bland and generic to me.

It starts slow.

Are Stephen King Thriller Horror Movies Supposed to Make U ZZZ?.

Besides the fact that they gave away the biggest twist in the trailer, the pace of the movie is slow and wooden.

Other unecessary, cliche "horror movie" additions: a kids creepy drawing that went nowhere and dubbing light hearted music over a grisly scene.

Don't waste your time.

The ending also fails to impress, and it's pretty predictable.

Don't waste your time or money on this version.

A complete waste of time !

Too long and drawn out.

Sure they added new stuff, but it was just too much copy-paste for me to be enjoyable.

The director does a great job of creating a creepy and engaging atmosphere/tone for the film; a sense of overwhelming dread or doom.

In conclusion: Don't waste your money

It is very bland and cliched, the characters are poorly developed and cliche.

Basically, this movie was suspenseful because we know what happened in the original.

They took one of King's best stories (AND film adaptations) and remade it about as generic and predictable as you can get.

Waste of money .

Just bored and wishing I'd gone to see another movie.

1 Star is too much for this bore.

Intense .

The movie took it's time and I think it's a good thing, as I was afraid of getting modern cheap scare to balance the slow burning aspect of the original material.

This movie was so bad, I got bored in the first 30 minutes and couldn't wait to get out.

I often regret going cinema, cause films nowadays are so boring or bad or just stupid.

Cheap jump scares, bad characters, the film is really boring.


I was just bored.

The movie was great and I enjoyed it throughout.

Predictable and poorly done .

In my opinion, save your money and catch it on TNT in a year.

Starts off ok but quickly loses control and nose dives into a predictable crash, that doesn't even explode on impact.

The relationships between father, daughter, mother and neighbor all formulaic to the point of appearing like a caricature of 'normal people' in simple contrast to the carnage to come.

Very bad and boring movie no scary scenes no jumpscares not comparable to the original movie the original was much better

The guy playing Louis in the original was not a super good actor, but at least his breaking point was intense, and the one playing Rachel was really likeable ...

This film was just boring, not even scary to be honest, idk how yall got scared over some of the boring scenes.

Very dull and average remake that quite fails to do the source material justice or compare to the classic original.

Overall, not a terrible movie, and quite enjoyable.

Its creepy,horrific and thrilling.

Zzzzzzz its so god damn boring.

Saw it in cinema and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Good remake, worth watching .

Probably because of a slightly uninspiring realization and a confusing Jud's character.

It annoys you with cheap, predictable jumpscares that aren't even well done.

Towards the end it became so dumb that I kind of went with it and enjoyed it as I had a few moments when I just wanted to laugh out loud at the stupidity of the movie and the characters.

To be frank, I literally fell asleep in the theatre two maybe three times.

Textbook Predictable Horror Movie .

The first hour is a snore fest and the last 40 minutes is so rushed and definitely doesn't hold up to the original.

This movie is just another saranic propaganda.

Don't waste your time or money on this film.

Waste of Time .

Competent acting and shot composition (if a little bland at times) is wasted on poor narrative decisions.

Could've been a little more unpredictable with the scares.

Plain and simple, this is one of the WORST movies EVER MADE.

Plus, a couple of the exciting moments from the trailer seemed to have been cut from the movie.

So exciting see Stephen King's popularity grows again!

Ya boring.

I could try to explain why, but it's probably best to just say it quickly felt unintentionally and weirdly pointless - a movie-by-the-numbers.

It used up every possible cliche - the couple moves to the countryside, the wife has a troubled past so she's unstable, there's a creepy drawing done by the kid, the creepy neighbour who's actually not creepy at all but kind and wise, etc, etc. It was so predictable.

Again clumsy acting plodding set ups and Overly drematic scare set ups.

It changed it up a bit from the first one so it wouldn't be too predictable and it kept the chills and goosebumps going throughout.

The ending incredibly predictable.

Good, but predictable.

All things consider, a very decent remake, worth watching, and faithful enough to King's Intent that I'm still content with it as a die hard fan.

Devoid Of Entrrtainment & Boring For Most Of The Movie .

The worst movie I have ever been to.

It's predictable, generic and, frankly, it's quite boring for quite a while.

I was bored.

This is a pretty standard modern cash grab cliché horror remake that had the chance to be something very intense and well executed that was just kind of there .

The entire thing was disappointing and actually a waste of time making it.

Great movie, worth watching.

A very bland and forgettable Stephen King adaptation.

Some of the scare factors are also pretty effective but without a doubt, my biggest praise for the film are the unexpected twists and turns.

Every scare was predictable so it was not a scare.

Everything similar to the movie wasnt as fun or entertaining (except the hospital gore scene and the makeup on the mom's chained sister) and everything different wasnt nearly as good.

It was slow moving and did not have any scare value to it.

I was dragged to this pathetic excuse for a horror film against my will and I really resent going.

Boring Remake .

All in all, don't waste your time or your money on this.

I thought was US was slow and terrible...

Unfortunately, this film as a disappointment, has a slow build, and completely ruins itself in the last 30 or so minutes.

Starring the ultra bland Jason Clarke this goes down different roads than both the book and the original, it teases following the source material multiple times then suddenly goes in a different direction.

Pet Sematary mainly sucked because it was so damn safe, boring and felt like an average remake, not a creative way to redo the story.

Stephen Kings Pet Semetary is a story of loss, of the anguish and confusion that accompanies loss, and the depths that people sometimes go when their emotions careen out of control and fantasy becomes a sanctuary.

In lieu of a investing story about grief and loss, we have a pretty boring excuse for a set-up with a few jump-scares here and there.

It relies on predictable jump scares for the horror element.

I was bored a lot of the time.

Jason Clarke is definitely a better actor than Dale Midkiff, but he's a bit too intense from the start which hurts the film a bit.

Very dull with a terrible ending.

It was one contrived pile of sludge to the next.

), but his character throughout the film comes across as rather predictable.

Oh and the dialogue, the dialogue was so pointless and stupid, "What is this?

Six people got up and walked out...

The story is absolutely fascinating and Lambert's movie was the very first horror movie I saw at the age of eight.

"So, here's a definition of waste of time.

The first hour consisted solely of identically structured jump scares that became more and more predictable as they kept happening.

Like watching paint dry.

It is a lot more intense than the original and has more scares and blood/gore.

The first half of the movie I wanted to hang myself from boredom.

Really enjoyed it .

Basic, But Enjoyable .

So bad that I walked out of the theater halfway through.

It's never 'scary' but there's a good level of tension, you're actually invested and overall it becomes fairly entertaining.

There is another more mundane horror though, that of trucks and cars which threaten to snuff out life at any moment.

Really boring, I left unscared.

With a threadbare story, most of which is already crammed into the film's second trailer (avoid it if you can), the film is not interested in offering any depth to its horror, instead relying on the audience to get on board with the idea of reanimated corpses at face value and it leads to some pretty silly, but still highly entertaining, moments.

I left the theater angry because it wasn't as good as they could have made it or even as good as the trailers portrayed.

This is your typical, predictable Hollywood teen scream cash grab littered with plot holes, poor acting, no audience participation, and zero character development.

I'm hoping this will be the worst movie I'll watch this year.

The reliability of this formula actually grew annoying because it made the movie very predictable despite the changes.

Another satanic propaganda.

The story is good and taking you till end in a thrilling journey.

An intense nightmare.

Snapping my jaw from a sweet long yawn I will admit that a few moments got me a little: the main scares come from screamers and disgusting stuff that you don't see every day.

Boring, not scary.

I'm getting sick and tired of all these watered down, drawn out remakes.

Don't waste your money.

Did not c the first part so this one was a good movie for me , it was intense , gripping as well .

Boring .

First horror I've seen in a while that I've enjoyed and it felt quite short because it was so gripping throughout.

The effects were bland and expected and ordinary.

Getting to what I didn't like about Pet Sematary, the first thing is that the movie is SLOW.

I don't even know why I'm reviewing this to be honest, it was such a piece of garbage and a complete waste of your money.

So Boring .

Didnt have high expectations, so this movie was quit enjoyable.

Adding onto this, there are WAY TOO MANY JUMPSCARES here and they really do become very predictable and feel cheap after a while.

The film is very slow moving and unnerving with little to no jump scares, which is a plus.

There is much more of a gripping story to Pet Sematary than the afore mentioned horrors, making up slightly for its use of jump scares.

It's horrible, endless dialog going nowhere, felt like hours when minutes had passed, I frankly can't believe anyone thought it was good and it certainly wasn't scary in any way.

Everything else was just bland and essentially just filling.

The little girl comes home and she murders in broad daylight, dancers and there's all this unnecessary drawn out sequence for the sake of filling up screen time.

The movie starts off extremely slow and then rushes through.. Certain elements from the Book/film that made the story TRULY terrifying were omitted from this film...

Boring and obvious.

Save your money and wait for it to come out on redbox.

I hate stupid horror movies where all they do is make you jump from unexpected appearances or loud noises, this is not it.

The cinematography is also muddy and, often, overly-dark, giving the picture an indistinct and generally dull appearance.

The effects were bland and expected and ordinary.

And that made it very predictable.

Great and entertaining.

When there was an intense scene it would just cut to a happy go lucky scene.

Surprisingly dull .

Yes, the story is predictable but still enjoyable.

They're constant and incredibly predictable.

It's such a waste to have him in such a pivotal role and his performance is bland.

I enjoyed it at the theater.

Flat characters and zero nuance make this an empty shell of a movie .

Clarke's performance as the hero/doctor/dad was predictable and the most interesting part of the story was the wife's inner guilt about her sister's death.

Don't waste your time.

Don't waste your money .

I found it pretty boring & predictable and they left out some really good material from the original that could have improved it.

Though I haven't seen the original, this film is a genuinely scary and suspenseful fright fest that left me gripping my seat and urging my date to hold my hand because I was so frightened.

The exposition, however, can be dull at moments.

What is it about Stephen King that brings out such a mish mash of irregular results, that range everywhere from the unwatchable terrible to the breathtaking brillant.

Very boring .

Don't waste your money.

Totally worth watching.

So you have an overall boring story with a few strong scenes.

Cliche after cliche.

I could go on and on at even further length about how painfully wimpy and pg13 this so called horror is but it'll be buried under the paid for reviews and the reviews by people who think Rings was a decent horror movieI dont care about remakes taking liberties with the book or the 80s movie as long as the movie is entertaining and this is so far from entertaining I honestly wish I could score less than zero.

I felt as if this was a great jumping in point for newcomers because the concept and lore of Pet Sementary is really intriguing with its supernatural execution and this fresh adaptation delivers.

You're Boring .

Furthermore, the location and setting of the film really made the majority of the film's unsettling and intense scenes, which leads me onto my next positive.

The movie kept you on the edge of your seat the entire time.

Lets just skip the boring old guy and google stuff because modern age, ehh ?.

Sadly, the story has not point, it is going nowhere and events seem to be randomly taken out from a hat.

Totally boring remake and not scary at all.

This movie is a total waste of time and money.

The film has a slow build.

It all seemed a little cliche for me.

All in all it's a very forgettable movie with flares of King's brilliant novel but not nearly enough to make a cohesive, engaging film.

There are almost no creepy visuals or atmosphere, the cinematography is bland and flat.

Sadly, the first half of the film was just boring, with terrible dialogue and Jason Clarke felt like he was phoning in his performance, while John Lithgow was criminally underutilized when they could have beefed up Judd's character a bit rather than just use him as an exposition mouthpiece.

The story is also pretty predictable.

But they did absolutely nothing with this movie, it's just so boring and drawn out.

An Suspenseful And Effective That Proves That Sometimes Remake Is Better .

The first half turns out to be quite boring as the story is slowly unfolded in order to touch on the most minute of details.

Slow, horribly acted, felt like a made for TV movie they're trying to cash in on, some plots go no where, more then a few "what the heck was that?

I remember watching the original and of course reading the book, so this as with Dunno could never replace the original for me and I can't say how someone new to this film would find it because it is in my personal opinion bland.

intense well polished and great cast, I like the fact the main family have issues prior to the events that occur ...

Don't waste your time.

The movie feels bland.


This was just one long snore with 3-4 good jumps in it.

It is a compelling character element, and portrayed beautifully by Seimetz.

Very Enjoyable .

the devotion of time to a useless activity "the waste of time could prove fatal"Type of: dissipation, waste, wastefulness useless or profitless activity; using or expending or consuming thoughtlessly or carelessly

A family tragedy strikes shortly after Church's unexpected return, and it is one that will push Louis to his darkest limits.

They focused too much time on the cat and then rushed a really uninspiring ending.

It was pretty boring for tha most part , It have been a few hours now since I saw it in the theatres and I can't remember anything special about it, you can decide if that sounds good or bad.

I wish I left early, the final 30 minutes was a boring and cliched slog.

Despite a few changes from the original source, everything remains the same, however, the screenplay doesn't take you to the fear zone, and the story develops a rather flat, boring story.

Slow, boring...

Found the film a little slow especially the first hour although not completely boring at the same time.

I really enjoyed it.

The entire movie was forced, rushed and dull.

A thrilling experience from start to finish.

Maybe the actors weren't good, but definetely, the director should have modify the way the story goes, cause there are pointless scenes and you will fall asleep before you get some real action.

Total waste of time .

As I have written above, with a little bit of touch, this story could have been turned into a masterpiece, but as the way it is, Pet Sematary is still watchable and enjoyable.

It was different, and I enjoyed it.

A lot of the scenes very predictable.

The last 15 minutes become comically predictable, and the ending is just another unresolved plot point.

Very poor movie and a waste of time.

The movie was also extremely slow, boring, and just ridiculously idiotic.

This movie was boring, poorly acted, and hollow with no atmosphere.

Total waste of time for me.

What the 1989 version did or didn't deliver, THIS version was waaay off the mark and simply a waste of everyone's time involved.

Overall the story worked for me, but.. towards the end it got just a bit.. boring, I guess.

After the first ten or so minutes of the movie, I was on the edge of seat the rest of the way.

Speaking of the predictablity of the story, this movie is littered with tons of predictable jump scares.

I enjoy the 1989 film for different reasons as it's a schlocky horror movie that's just funny and not creepy, but the remake takes itself a lot more seriously with grounded characters, a creepy atmosphere, a slow pace and a tight script to tie everything together.

So slow!

Skip it and save your money!

This does that well as right from the start, as based on how dreary a chunk of it feels, even when nothing scary is happening.

Luckily then, once things really get going (which unfortunately happens far too late into the narrative) it's quite enjoyable.

Don't waste your time .

Urg, it's only been however long but I'm already sick of hearing the praises of this stupid bland little movie!

Bored Sematary .

Just another ho hum hyped up movie that will be forgotten in a couple of months.

I'm sure that die hard Stephen King fans will take issue with some of it but it was worth the watch for me.

many seem to like it and i wanted to like it but its nothing more than a run of the mill, cliche filled horror movie.

TOTAL waste of money and time.

Personally the reason why the originally stuck was not because it was an intense horror...

I will say the movie was entertaining and it didn't leave me disappointed.

Bland .

Dull as hell.

Very intense.

I fell asleep at that part and I had to open again and again to understand what was happening that time but I kept falling asleep.

Almost the entire story was spoiled during promotional material but of the surprises that remain, they are predictable and underwhelming.

That was just bonkers to me, what a trite and cheaply nasty way to end the movie.

A really enjoyable horror with genuine chills - ideal for newcomers unfamiliar with the source material .

Subtracting authentic horror to add cliche scare hacks was bad.

The premise certainly has lots of potential, and it's all very intriguing, it just fails to execute itself really well, or give any sort of satisfactory resolution to any of it.

It felt dull, rushed and unauthentic.

I was that bored with it, I ate 90% of the popcorn before the film was 75% through.

Creepy and intense throughout!

This is the worst movie adaptation I have ever seen.

Very unconvincing, boring, without a proper pace.

I left the theater wondering what would have happened to that poor boy.

Just like the original, it was not scary, mainly because the scares were the most predictable scares you could think of, it's just like any other horror movie that has come out in the last decade.

And while this, as a standalone film, is worth seeing, and is a solid, if uninspiring horror film, one cannot feel that they yearn for the original and Miko Hughes, who was wonderful as Gage back in 1989.

No spoilers, obviously the deaths were switched but for the better, this was beyond better than the original and definitely worth watching again and again

Even Stephen King enjoyed it,it deserves a solid 8/10.

It was kinda boring and the performances weren't good.

Much like It: Chapter One, there is an over-reliance on predictable and silly jump scares, and ultimately, what could have been a mature and emotionally affecting story gives in to the worst excesses of the genre, betraying both itself and the original novel.

Pet Sematary is the opposite, it feels tired, generic and most of the actors stumble through their scenes appearing just as bored as we are watching them.

A fairly boring film.

The 2019 remake of pet semetary is a bland and forgettable film that doesnt take any risks.

It dragged until what seemed to be a messy, rushed ending.

It was so boring, even the jump scares were taken inducing.

I really enjoyed it .

Suspenseful Masterpiece .

This movie was so dull and d grade should have been straight to video.

But, the movie turned out to be a super boring disaster.

The first part of this film was slow, the next part was intense and interesting and felt right, and the last part just took the film in a whole different direction.

Instead, we have a generic concept (I mean, it was generic in the 80s, to be frank) that's executed generically; every aspect is done in the most contrived way possible, to the point that it almost seems by design.
