Although the story of this one is really predictable, Stephen King really plunges a lot of emotional depth here, making it one of my favorites of his.

I read Pet Sematary a long time ago as I love most of Steven King, and to be honest, the book scared the crap out of me (which believe me is rare); I saw the movie and although it was good also, the book made more of an impact on me.      Steven King sometimes draws out his novels a little too much for me; I like action right through without lots of "down time" and this book fit the bill.  I won't waste your time by telling you what the story was about, as …

   I have been a long time reader of Mr. King and along with the book IT this is one that truly scared me. In my opinion it is King's scariest work. The thing I fell in love with the most was the depth and the psychology of the entire cast of characters. Read if you are a fan of the horror genre or just great novels in general.

I saw this movie 25 years ago, shortly after my father died, so I was in a emotionally shaky state.  I didn't think I was easily shocked --- I'd seen the Exorcist!!  -- but this movie was horrifying to me.  To actually think about bringing your loved ones back was unimaginable.  But to have them come back as monsters was shocking.  I later read the book to see if I'd missed something in the movie.  But I don't think I did!   …

Though it seems to lose pace in the latter half, a compelling concept and skillful writing keep, "Pet Sematary," afloat.
