What the Critics say
Gabi Zietsman For a horror fan, Pet Sematary was a complete letdown and another example of a studio making a horror just for the money instead of for the art.
Jim Judy While not perfect, I enjoyed the flick for what it is and is trying to do. And I’m certainly glad I don’t live in a house with a dumbwaiter, own a property that has a pet cemetery on it, or have the desire to bury something in one.
Tomatometer Pet Sematary takes its source material in a few different directions, but this remake feels like an exhuming almost as often as it does a revival.

Jeffrey M. Anderson Dark, violent remake focuses on emotions over gore.
