PET SEMATARY: B+

Fans of the original Pet Sematary bawl at any and all changes to their beloved 1989 horror classic, but believe me when I say the major change only strengthens the plot of this bleak Stephen King adaptation. While some of the pacing doesn't sit well with me (Rachel's telling of her relationship with her sister, Zelda, seems hurried in particular), the acting-- particularly from Jeté Laurence, is great. The major horror at the heart of this reimagining is grief, and this movie is steeped in it. It's worth your time and your dollars.
