Unsettling PET SEMATARY Clip and The Horror Film is Being Praised By Audiences
Well, according to a bunch of reactions from audiences and critics who attended a screening of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary at SXSW, the movie is going to be the fantastically terrifying horror movie that we are all hoping it is! It’s always encouraging to see good reactions to films that we’re looking forward to!
I’ve included a few of the reactions from people for you to read through below, but first, I’ve got a new clip for you to watch! This is kind of an unsettling clip as it features the scene where Louis Creed (Jason Clarke) reunites his wife Rachel (Amy Seimetz) with their daughter, who was recently raised from the dead. As you’ll see, she’s not very thrilled about it, and is absolutely terrified!
Below you will find some reactions of the film from those who have seen it. As you’ll see, it sounds like it’s going to deliver some intense nightmarish scares!
#PetSematary delivers a solid sense of dread from start to finish. It earns its well-timed jump scares, and terrific sound design and gnarly effects add extra layers of creepy. I think King fans will dig it.— Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) March 17, 2019

#PetSematary is *vicious* and I LOVED it. Super brutal visuals and was thrilled to see Widmyer & Kölsch fully embrace the deeply unsettling themes of mortality from the book. And WOW Jeté Laurence. They really pushed it with this adaptation & it worked for me - big time. 😺 #sxsw— Perri Nemiroff (@PNemiroff) March 17, 2019
*sigh* #PetSematary is very average. Good acting, sound design, and production value. But it’s never scary enough, never tense enough. Once the horror stuff REALLY kicks in, it’s pretty much over. I don’t know what I was expecting, but I wanted more out of this.#SXSW2019 pic.twitter.com/vEW1v2w8aG— Kevin L. Lee (@Klee_FilmReview) March 17, 2019
#PetSematary: This adaptation of Stephen King’s novel makes for an undeniably fun popcorn horror flick. That said, even with slicker 2019 production values, a sharper script, and a couple of neat twists, it hits the beats in surprisingly similar manner as the first film #SXSW19 pic.twitter.com/iksGttyusI— Caleb Masters @ SXSW19 (@CMastersTalk) March 17, 2019
#PetSematary is a hoot and a half! Super dark, twisted, gory, and surprisingly funny! More of a dark comedy than the original movie, and it all works once the fucked up third act kicks in. The cast is fantastic. Jeté Laurence is a revelation! What a way to end #SXSW— Rafael Motamayor @ SXSW (@GeekWithAnAfro) March 17, 2019
The movie was directed by Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kölsch and it also stars John Lithgow as Jud Crandall.
Based on the seminal horror novel by Stephen King, Pet Sematary follows Dr. Louis Creed (Jason Clarke), who, after relocating with his wife Rachel (Amy Seimetz) and their two young children from Boston to rural Maine, discovers a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near the family’s new home. When tragedy strikes, Louis turns to his unusual neighbor, Jud Crandall (John Lithgow), setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences.
Pet Sematary is set to be released in theaters on April 19, 2019.
