The movie is about this kid Jeff Mathews and his father who live din Hollywood with Jeff's movie star mother Renee, until there was an accident while filming a movie and Renee got electricuted and died. Jeff saw the whole thing. So his father decided to move to Ludlow, Maine (the place where all the stuff happened with the Creed family from the first film) and Jeff gets himself a new kitten from the kennel where his dad is going to work.
When he starts school, Jeff hears talk of an acient Indian Burial Ground that "makes the dead rise." Then Jeff makes friends with pudjy Drew Gilmore. When Drew's abusive trigger-happy father Gus shoots Drew's dog, Jeff and Drew bury him in the Burial Ground. When Drew's vengevul dog comes back from the dead and kills Gus, They bury him in the Burial Ground. Gus comes back and all hell breaks loose and all citizens of the town are in danger.
So, it is more fun and enjoyable than the first, but not so much fun that it's cheesy. It's just not as serious as the first. It is still very disturbing, as the first was. See it if you liked the first one.
Basically, the plot centers around a young boy played by Edward Furlong who is absolutely devastated by his mother's grisly demise...naturally, he would do anything to get his mother back and eventually does. The basic premise behind this movie appears to be that the evil force behind the pet sematary is calling upon Furlong's character to resort to the pet sematary to bring back his mother along with some incredible evil as well.
Overall, the movie works a good bit like the original and while it is certainly an entertaining enough movie for horror movie fans, the sequel is not nearly as effective as the original. One strong area that the original "Pet Sematary" had was the very interesting character of Jud played very well by Fred Gwynne...Jud's character carries the momentum of each scene in the original and basically made "Pet Sematary" work, but we don't have that strong character presence to make the wheels go round in this sequel, therefore the movie comes across flat. What we do have in this sequel is an average horror movie that attempts to cash in on the success of the original classic.
Perhaps, the characters in "Pet Sematary II" are just weak in general (no disrespect to Clancy Brown or Anthony Edwards), but something is missing here in part two of this series despite the similarities in the dark and disturbing atmosphere painted so meticulously by Lambert. Quite frankly, I did not like the casting of Edward Furlong as the main character to begin with...Read more ›
Gory as hell sequel to the 1989 horror classic "Pet Semetary" isn't bad as some people claim to be! I thought this was a fun sequel with good amounts of gore like animals being ripped apart by the dog, throat-ripping, cannibalism and more. The acting is kind of medicore compared to the original's performances which were great by the way but there is some bizarre dreams in this movie and some nice kills by the zombies. It sure isn't like the first one but it's still a enjoyable follow-up from the same director.
The only extra this DVD has is a theatrical trailer but that's OK.
