We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson's case, by shouting out one word - SHAZAM. - this streetwise fourteen-year-old foster kid can turn into the grown-up superhero Shazam.

Louis Creed, his wife Rachel, and their two children, Gage and Ellie, move to a rural home where they are welcomed and enlightened about the eerie 'Pet Sematary' located nearby. After the tragedy of their cat being killed by a truck, Louis resorts to burying it in the mysterious pet cemetery, which is definitely not as it seems, as it proves to the Creeds that sometimes, dead is better.
According to Kevin Kölsch, "Ellie is the one who has the self-awareness to know what is happening to her and she has the vocabulary to ask questions about it." See more »
During Louis's first trip to the burial ground, some lightning is seen near the horizon. Thunder follows about a second later. The lightning appears miles distant, and the thunder would have taken much longer to reach Louis's location. See more »
Pet Sematary nails its atmosphere and tone in a perfectly sinister Stephen King esc way, and makes for a very interesting ride. Though the pacing of the film may seem a bit slow at times, when the film picks up its feet, it grabs your heart easily and makes for one of the most enjoyable horror flicks of recent days. Nearly every actor in this film deserves some credit, especially that of John Lithgow as Jutt and Jason Clarke as the father of the family. The daughter also does a pretty great job at her truly horrifying and changing character, and Church the cat once again remains a very prominent horror figure. The music in the film provided for some fabulous suspense, and the overall look captured was unique and quite fitting. In all, Pet Sematary may not be the most original film this year, or the most unpredictable (as the trailers pretty much spoiled everything), but it certainly is an interesting ride, and provides an experience that is nearly unforgettable.
My Rating: 9/10
