Spooky Season with Stephen King

While it might be easy to dismiss stories of the paranormal as fake, a “killer clown” story is something that scares even the most hardened non-believer. Maybe that’s why so many people lined up to see the next installment of the highly anticipated movie It: Chapter Two in theaters. If you haven’t seen the first "chapter" of It from 2018 (the highest-grossing horror movie of all time), or Stephen… (more)

I didn't think this was bad for a remake. Although I may not be as faithful to the original since I can't remember it and it's due for a rewatch. And now I'm not sure if I read the book. I didn't think it was boring as some reviewers expressed, but to be fair, I was doing something else while watching. So perhaps it's the kind of movie you can have on the background while you work on your projects.

This movie adaptation is a lot more faithful to the novel as it actually acknowledges the Wendigo. It is a lot scarier than it's predecessor. Highly recommend it

Having actually read the book, and being familiar with the forgettable '80s film, I was excited to see this classic Stephen King book was being revamped! As it crossed the Desk I snapped it up, and wasn't disappointed. It was far more atmospheric, and with few exceptions, more true to the original novel. Even being familiar with the story, there were tense moments; unexpected and jarring. John Lithgow is superb, taking a tired predictable character and making him not only relatable but surprisingly sympathetic. I wasn't unhappy with this rendition, and it was far and away less campy than the previous incarnation.

Awful! I did not see that ending coming, I’ll give it that, but otherwise, this movie just bad.

Pet Sematary I give this movie a 2 out of five. Pet Sematary is based off the 1989 movie and Stephen King book. I have watched the 1989 movie and compared to this one it was a disaster. It definitely wasn’t worth any of my time and was really bad. I did like that they did remake the 1989 movie and bring light to it, because the older one was underrated. Other than that, it was bad, horrible even to say. The first movie was much scary than the newer one, it didn’t even get a little. This movie was really boring I would never watch this movie again. The actors did an ok job with the movie, Jete Laurence who played Ellie did a good job. I didn’t like how they changed the movie like by making the oldest died and not the youngest. It just turned into another horror remake, and at this point I'm sick of remakes. Like can no one think of a new horror that isn't and extension or a remake. People in horror movie really make me mad because why in what world would it be ok to some the things that they do. I do not recommend this movie to anyone simply because it is just a bad movie. @IceCream of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Another lame re-make. There should be law against remaking any Steven King story already put to celluloid. The originals are much better, so what's the point?

This was a pretty good movie! Creepy (especially the mother’s sister) and suspenseful! The only problem was that the movie was predictable at some points. Good acting & special effects! Liked the moral sometimes better to be honest than lie, and by lying are you protecting others or yourself. The ending was great! Overall great show!

Not scary. Ending seems very rush.

This is from the classic Stephen King's novel Pet Sematary. Compared to the other Pet Sematary movies I found this one to be done better. However, the my best experience with this story was actually reading the book.
