Required fields are marked *. Jud is like a drug - bad for you in the long run, but it feels so good right now. Despite his small size, he's also able to carry out the bloody, gruesome deaths of both Jud and Rachel. I’m still really new to King’s work, so I haven’t looked into this one yet. If you’ve seen the new spin on Pet Sematary, you know the filmmakers weren’t afraid to stay true to the dark and dreary nature of Stephen King‘s infamously ghoulish horror tale. 1 day ago, by Karen Snyder Duke And I agree, the horror levels is definitely subjective! To repay Louis for his actions, Jud offers to take Louis to the pet cemetery a month later when Church is run over. Like I said at the top, this was a tale about how far a family member is willing to go… They weren’t a perfect family, that’s for sure. Even so, it’s another subversion of the source material that sets up what we know before revealing that things are, in the words of Luke Skywalker, “not going to go the way you think.”.

Pet Sematary by Stephen King is an intense tale about family and how far someone will go to bring things back to “normal.”. Enjoy NOS4A2 and Wraith!

It happens slowly at first, but as the tale goes on, it gets more and more intense while the reader begins dreading what will happen next. Pet Sematary is now playing in theaters everywhere. I read this book years ago and still remember two scenes vividly: the bathtub scene (not an extraordinary event in itself, but some kind of plot point I guess) and the details of the grave construction. Over the years, I have written about a myriad of topics like film, television, music, and even pharmaceuticals. When Paramount dropped the second trailer for its remake of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary back in early February, fans of the novel (and the 1989 film adaptation) were noticeably ruffled by a major, major change to the story. Even so, I still thought that this was an awesome read! The story wraps up with Louis calmly playing cards back in the house with his back to the door, as Rachel's corpse walks in and places a hand on his shoulder before saying in a scratchy, raspy voice, "Darling.". And, sure enough, the dust jacket copy confirms it, announcing that Stephen King found his story ''so horrifying that he was for a time unwilling to finish writing it.'' Actually, there are a number of things that at first seem silly and innocuous about Mr. King's latest thriller. The Ellie/Gage switcheroo has a major impact on the film as a whole, a sort of butterfly effect on the film’s plot, and it all manifests in the film’s ending — which fans of the book will note is very different from the original ending. Per usual, some of it was only mentioned vaguely, which I think helps add to the mystery and terror! The corpses of whatever is buried in this specific plot of land will come back to life within a day, only they act much more aggressive, meaner, evil, or even display cannibalistic traits. In the book’s ending, Gage kills Rachel and Louis finally puts Gage out of his undead misery but deludes himself into believing Rachel will come back OK if he buries her quicker.

Sorry it wasn’t quite as horror as you’d expected! When Paramount dropped the second trailer for its remake of Stephen King’s. ☝️, Awesome, You’re All Set! I tend to dream about the books I’m reading, or something that resembles them, especially if I read right before bed. So ''Pet Sematary'' seems, after all, the book that scared even its creator. What has always made Mr. King so effective as a storyteller is his instinct for subtly exploiting the unconscious hostility and consequent guilt that men and women feel in the routine of living with each other and raising their children. KING calls Pet Sematary his scariest book, and I can understand why. This is not a King novel I’ve read, or a movie I’ve seen (I think I’ve seen bits and pieces of the first adaptation).
