Story Outline

Pet Sematary

Writer’s Observation

If it will mean watching this movie again, you probably will not want to be buried in the pet sematary. This movie is one of the films that you will hear people asking: what were they really thinking? Is this kind really necessary? Who is in their proper minds will come up with such idea like this? Bloodlines centers on the young Jud Crandall that tells the plot of the entire bunch of crazy stuffs happening around him.

Coming from the not so famous opinion with no actual hatred towards remakes, prequels or spin-offs, reboots, and sequels, it is undeniable that the movie is a totally catastrophe of the movie, founded by someone with an average thinking idea. It is filled with lots of dumb circumstances and ridiculous plot holes that it became hard to watch without really wondering why this project was taken up. For where credit is being due, the movie actually is pretty interesting that moves smoothly. It is competently made with regards to how the shots appear, how the camera worked and the truth that the artists actually do their decent job, but that is pretty much all and that is what is good about it.

The movie can practically be summed down into most of its writings and whoever came up with this idea. It feels really much like their writers had the bunch of “cool” terror film ideas that they wish to just put it here, but with bunch of unwise clichés crammed to one is just how it happened to be.
