I was bored a lot of the time.

Another pointless remake.

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.

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

Pointless movie without soul .

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

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

Bored Sematary .

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

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.

The whole thing is so boring you find yourself just waiting for it to end.

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

I thought was US was slow and terrible...

Lithgow was as bland as they come.

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

It was really hard for me to get into the story as I found either something completely unbelievable, or the mom or dad was going off on pointless dream sequences or memories.

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

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

Subtracting authentic horror to add cliche scare hacks was bad.

Just plain dumb and dreadfully boring.

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

The story is also pretty predictable.

Best trailer for the worst movie .

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.

Very intense.

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

This movie is a total waste of time and money.

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

Walk out of the theater bad .

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


But soon enough, it all goes downhill with every horror cliche thrown at the viewer...

"The movie was pretty predictable once the daughter was hit.

Some techie nerdy notes - The Dolby ATMOS surround sound was also well executed, making me feel engaged and immersed in the Pet Sematary world, with plenty of sound activity moving around the room, crispy clear dialogue, and powerful action sequences or jump-scares that simply sound great.

This was hard to watch, seriously bored !

I was SO bored I exchanged my ticket for another horror movie currently in the discount cinema- Us.

I was bored.

Don't waste your time or money .

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

Waste of Time .

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

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.

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

Skip it and save your money!

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

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

It was very slow to develop.

Don't waste your time by watching this crap...

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

Good movie overall If you cant stand a slow paced movie dont watch it

An intense nightmare.

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

The music is perfect, it builds up as the situation starts to get intense.

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

Unnecessary and Bland .

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

Good slow paced horror flick .

It starts slow.

Total disappointment and complete waste of my time!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This is the worst movie adaptation I have ever seen.

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

Boring Remake .

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.

Don't waste your time, failed attempt and borders on comical rather than scary.

Too predictable .

It all seemed a little cliche for me.

Very dull with a terrible ending.

It's alright, but very predictable .

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.

To be honest, it's a little boring.

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.

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

The first half was a kind of entertaining, but the remaining half was a dull horror flick when you already know what's gonna happen.

Well made but formulaic .

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

Don't waste your time.

I highly recommend it.

Very poor movie and a waste of time.

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

Save your money, wait for the DVD

Don't waste your money.


The film has a slow build.

Predictable, and Does NOT Top the Original 1989 Film .

Just plain boring and the ending are...

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

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

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.

The movie is really slow and boring.

Totally worth watching.

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

So exciting see Stephen King's popularity grows again!

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.

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

Bland .

really makes for a compelling character.

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.

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

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

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

Firstly relying on too many predictable jump scares.

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

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

This movie was so boring and predictable.

I was just bored.

Better than I thought, worth watching .

Too long and drawn out.

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

Worst movie .

Predictable and poorly done .

Saw it in cinema and thoroughly enjoyed it.

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.

Ellie's death was done in a way that felt a little too cliche' once she was brought back by her grieving father.

TOTAL waste of money and time.

While not unwatchable, bit enjoyable in parts, the movie is kind of strung out and very predictable.

Overall, not a terrible movie, and quite enjoyable.


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

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

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

Another satanic propaganda.

I am only halfway, but oh my gosh.. Bored.

Instead, it was boring, not scary, and made no sense.

A fairly boring film.

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.

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

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

The ending to this version was much more satisfying, compelling and well executed for the same reasons already discussed here by several reviewers (most notably, Ellie's incarnation vs.

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

Boring and that pretty much sums it up.

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.

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

This movie is epitome of boredom.

confusing and abrupt.

Plus the cliffhanger ending is formulaic and contrived.

Suspenseful Masterpiece .

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

It is as clichéd as a movie can be, did not have a single scare in it (although it was packed with unnecessary and unscary jumpscares) and was boring, dragged and honestly a huge let down.

Instead it was boring.

A pretty dull and disappointing ecranisation in my opinion.

Very unconvincing, boring, without a proper pace.

Cliche after cliche.

A waste of time .

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

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.

A very bland and forgettable Stephen King adaptation.

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

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

The worst movie I have ever been to.

The mothers tragic Side Story seemed to detract from the original plot, and rather pointless.

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.

LolPoor character development, predictable, and dumb.

It's all a bit bland .

The effects were bland and expected and ordinary.

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.

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

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

The acting was boring and predictable.

Really enjoyed it .

Don't waste your time .

The movie was really intense and creepy specially the jump scares of Ellie when once she came back alive after she dead.

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?

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

Create something new and entertaining.

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.

pointless movie, no real plot, no ending, and all the "action" happened in the last 3 minutes.

Bland .

Seriously, just don't waste your time.

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

You're Boring .

First half flows like a good yet typical horror flick, unlike the second which could be totally unexpected to someone who knows nothing about the book or the old movie.

The entire movie was forced, rushed and dull.

Good remake, worth watching .

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

Bored to freaking death.

Here, paid cronies attacked again :( Unfortunately, movie is pretty bland.

It's boring and stupid, and that's pretty much all I've got to say about that.

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.

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.

Bland and forgettable.

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

I enjoyed it at the theater.

It's entertaining and creepy.

I really enjoyed it .

I began to wonder why, when this book had frightened me so much, why was this movie so bloody boring?

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

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.

Slow and suspenseful .

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

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

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

Unfortunately this film was a yet another dull disappointment, although it was marginally better than the recent IT remake.

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

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 and obvious.

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

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.

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

Great and entertaining.

Limp, pointless remake .

A lot of the scenes very predictable.

Totally boring remake and not scary at all.

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

The ending incredibly predictable.

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

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.

Waste of time...

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.

Nine times out of ten, remakes are just pointless money grabbers and this is the perfect example.

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

Don't waste your time .

The film itself feels very disjointed.

It was a bit confusing.

Long and boring .

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

A thrilling experience from start to finish.

Another bad Apple advertisement that bored the hell out of me.

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.

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.

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.

There were lots of slow parts with hardly anything interesting going on with a forgettable musical score.

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

Both he and i found it very uninteresting, you see the first half of the movie ticks all the horror element off the bucket list within an hour, for instance, creepy house far from the city, useless-at-relationship couple, one is a brainless bint the other is a panicky doctor.

Waste of money .

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

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.

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

Yawn-Worthy .

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

The movie was great and I enjoyed it throughout.

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

It was just uninteresting and flat scripting.

I will start by saying Jason Clarke is a terrible actor, and a boring one at that, it doesn't really help that Jon Lithgow is unusually creepy as Jud Crandall, a far cry to lovable Fred Gwynne's interpretation for the1989 movie.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

Slow, boring...

Don't waste your time or money .

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

Clichéd, boring, and predictable.

I mean they switched up who died and some little things but I was really bored and I knew exactly what was gonna happen.

Dull as hell.

He's pretty dull, even when Louis is slowly losing his mind.

Another pointless remake of another "so-so" 80's movie.

Kinda slow movie with a great final act .

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

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.

Like watching paint dry.

Yes, the story is predictable but still enjoyable.

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

A dreary King adaptation .

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

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.

Boredom Semetary .

So, the movie was fine and pretty scary but many scenes were predictable and already seen in horror movies I've watched- and I didn't watch too many of them.

Well, this was a complete waste of time.

It relies on predictable jump scares for the horror element.

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

Possibly the most contrived piece of scripting seen since...

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.

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.

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.

Especially the dad just feels bland.

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

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

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

Intense .

Very boring .

Boring .

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

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

I was left feeling disappointed and bored.

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

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.

I was impressed with his performance in this otherwise boring movie.

This movie is just another saranic propaganda.

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.

This movie manages to deviate from the original enough to become flat and boring.

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

Poor and entirely predictable attempt to get some jump scares.

They really take away from my enjoyment of the film since they feel out of place when compared to the rest of the film, and are mainly used during scenes that honestly felt like pointless filler.

I really enjoyed it.

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

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

It felt empty.

Zzzzzzz its so god damn boring.


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 ...

While i'm a bit disappointed, i still thought it was an enjoyable movie and is not nearly as bad as Critics are making it out to be.

The mom falling asleep, then barricading the door in the storage room - which she couldn't even do properly because this woman is apparently incapable of ANYTHING.

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

Seriously, the best actor in this movie is the cat, way nicer than the original and more unpredictable in its reactions.

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

Great movie, worth watching.

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

An Empty Tomb .

And that made it very predictable.

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

Boring and suprising at the same 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...

Predictable jump scares, ominous middle act when learning of the possibilities on the property and a finale that does not lead anywhere as the prospects of a sequel seem slim to none.


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.

While I appreciate the creative license in trying to change the story up, it was done in such a bland and boring manner.

Every scare was predictable so it was not a scare.

It was one contrived pile of sludge to the next.

Go away dull soulless remake, die already 💀

It felt dull, rushed and unauthentic.

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.

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

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

Basic, But Enjoyable .

I truly was expecting some frights but characters too undeveloped and scare tactics very predictable.

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

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.

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

The movie feels bland.

Very Enjoyable .

Rushed and Predictable for all it's "twists" .

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

Yeah ok, expected at least to see something to rate 4/10 but i cant be more honest and i must say that -1h and 35' What a waste of time!!

So Boring .

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

Nigh Unwatchable .

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

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

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.

The changes they did in this new adaptation are pointless.

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.

Surprisingly dull .

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.

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.

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

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

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

The first thing someone logical would have done is added a speedbump to slow down trucks near a home.

Don't waste your time.

Completely ridiculous, save your money.

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

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.

I wouldn't call the movie a horror film, more suspenseful.

1 Star is too much for this bore.


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.

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

The effects were bland and expected and ordinary.

Don't waste your money .

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.

So slow!

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

Everything else was just bland and essentially just filling.

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

A pointless update that brings nothing new or interesting to the table except the very very end.

Devoid Of Entrrtainment & Boring For Most Of The Movie .

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

Boring, not scary.


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

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

Boring scenes with predictable jump-scares, and a meaningless side-story of Mom.

Riffs way to hard on expectations (ohhhh Juds bare foot) but is way too banal to achieve anything newJust awful

They're constant and incredibly predictable.

Pointless Remake .

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

A remake worth watching.

These changes, along with its excellent production value, tight pacing and lovely cinematography, make it worth the watch.

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.

Well that was a waste of my time for watching and their time for making it .

So intriguing and shocking.

I found myself sighing most of the way through cringing at lines from the former movie being shamelessly cribbed and the overall tone was dreary.

The movie was bland and left a sour taste in my mouth.

Waste of time.

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

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.

Bore the hell out of you .

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 .

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.

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

1 hour of the movie is boring as hell nothing literally happens.

Despite having some strange performances and creepy cinematography, Pet Sematary suffers from having a slow pace and a weak third act, making you leave with a bitter aftertaste.

But the original will be more memorable then this boring waste of time.

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

It was different, and I enjoyed it.

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

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

Creepy and intense throughout!

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

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

Total waste of time for me.

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

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.

Its goddam slow, predictable and apart from few jump scares can be barely considered as a horror

It is a by-the-numbers horrow with a predictable plot twist.

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

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

To be honest, I barely made it until the end of the movie, it was really boring.

It was boring.

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

Just all around flat, boring, and disappointing.

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.

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

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

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

Bland characters, obvious scenes and Pascow was so much more instrumental in the old.

Don't waste your time.

It started and finished kinda boring.

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

Boring .



The acting is terrible, the script is boring, the photography is ugly (it reminded of Suicide Squad), the editing is messy, the score is generic.

They turned one of the best stories literature had and turned it into a decent cliche-filled horror movie.

I found the story too disjointed.

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

Its nice to see a slow paced horror with little jump scares come thru the movie theater circuit.

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

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

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.

Trying to waste as little further time on this movie, I'll keep things brief; this is a painfully generic, overly simplistic horror movie & it's unremarkable slasher drivel.

Six people got up and walked out...

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

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.

However, at least that film's cheesy bad acting & awful dated special effects is so unintentional hilarious that it's semi entertaining.

Don't waste your time.

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

Second of all, I thought the first act felt very slow.

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

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.

The exposition, however, can be dull at moments.


It was dull.

Very predictable, continuity errors.

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.

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.

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

In conclusion: Don't waste your money

They are effortlessly capable of making you accept a few drastic changes to the original story and simultaneously keep the 40-year-old and well-known story suspenseful.

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

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.

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.

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.

At the same time, there are far between new original, effective and exciting horror films.

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 .

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

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.

Good, but predictable.

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

Ya boring.

Its creepy,horrific and thrilling.

The acting was horrible, weak jump scares, and the story just dragged.

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

I mean, maybe if you do NOT watch horrors (or any movie at all) I understand thay statement, but it was so overshadowing and so predictable that I believe the kids in the beginning are the ones who wrote the script!

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.

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

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

Don't waste you're time watching this.

Undead Ellie was boring and cliche and the big "dead family" ending was stupid and pointless IMO.

A complete waste of time !

Pointless .

Slow like hell!

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

Total waste of time .

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.

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

Otherwise I would stay away from this film, it's just disappointing and that makes Jack a dull boy.

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

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

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

Overall a soulless, stupid, predictable mess.

I was expecting it to be better then the orginal but it turned into a dull, flat movie.

Don't waste your money .

Really boring, I left unscared.

Boring, still better then the under-acted original .
