While I didn't see this title in many stores until a month or 2 past release date, I have never seen the slipcover in person either. I'm pretty sure it's a scarce one as I have no problem seeing the BD at most places now (everywhere but Best Buy has had or still has it).

My copy from Amazon finally showed up on Thursday....oddly enough the office cat that has been hiding (due to too many customers/strangers being around) did as well. Coincidence?

Nice BD with decent PQ and SQ.

I saw this movie in theaters when i was 7 3 times and became one of my fave King movies then i read the book when i was 8 and loved it.

Would anyone consider this movie and it's sequel and the book to be "zombie" or "ghoul" stuff? i mean Gage, Timmy, Rachel, Gus, that punk, the star mom etc. are they zombies or ghouls or are they dead bodies reanimated by evil spirits/demons and possessed and are more in the tradition of the REC creatures and the Deadites?

I consider the sequel to be comedy, the first is serious. Not sure if zombie is a better description than reanimated dead or possessed (possessed is the least likely of list IMO, cuz they died first making them either zombie or reanimated). That's kinda splitting hairs.

So basically they are possessed by the Wendigo right? in the book it said that a Wendigo soured the ground and cursed it forever.

And would you compare the PS undead to the Deadites? and besides turning people into cannibals, do Wendigos also bring the dead back to life?

Sorry to bump this thread, but I just found a new copy of this with the lenticular slipcover!

I can't wait to check this out on Blu, one of the most unnerving films ever made.

I agree. I love this movie because it isn't afraid to GO THERE.

Exactly, it's really unsettling and disturbing. It's one of my top 20 horror films because of it's bleak and atmospheric tone. Sure, it's cheesy and dated at points, but the scares work just as well on repeat viewings.

This is coming from a viewer who only saw Pet Sematary for the first time last October.

Not really. It actually manages to stay away from things that would date it (like obvious 80's styles or music), and aside from the slightly goofy looking Gauge doll that gets thrown around once or twice I find nothing cheesy about it at all.

Good story.
Good script.
Good tension.
Good performances.
Likable characters.
Good F/X.

You know when I think about it, the only part that I found cheesy was the
[Show spoiler]noooo scene after Gage's first death. Yet, that's only as a result of how the acting was handled.


I still find some of the moments at the very beginning to be a bit hokey, but it's all really minor flaws to a stunning horror film.

It's one of my favorite horror films as well. I had visited Maine last summer and did some location scouting from the film and went to mount hope cemetary where gage was buried and it was one cool experience!

That's amazing!

The locations were perfect in this film, everything felt so small and claustrophobic.

Always enjoyed this movie. I saw it on opening night back in 1989 as I was in 11th grade. It was mostly high school kids in the audience and everyone was really scared. It was a a lot of fun. The movie still holds up well and has a great creepy atmosphere - respectable older transfer too especially for Paramount.

I find that scene completely heart wrenching and totally believable.


I do agree on one acting point though, and that is the young girl playing the sister does overplay her part just a tad, but given how flat or annoying a lot of child actors can be, I'll take a little melodrama over an unconvincing turn any day of the week.

[Show spoiler]Sure, it's an utterly devastating and affecting scene, I just couldn't buy the "nooooo" moment. I don't laugh at it or anything, it's just a moment that rubbed me the wrong way.

Maybe it's a grieving thing. I work in medicine. People grieve differently, and I've noticed over the years that people will sometimes get annoyed with members of their family that grieve in a way they do not feel is normal. Everyone has their own internal perception of what they think is correct on this issue. Some cultures grieve very loudly and openly, others very silently and withdrawn. But regardless of the culture, there are always variances between individuals.

That makes sense.

Anyways, I think I will put in this Blu-ray tonight and check out the PQ.
