Wow! This sequel is just as incredible as the original. Now there's something you definately don't see every day! After I saw the fabulous PET SEMATARY, probably the greatest movie on Earth, I dreaded the thought that there was a sequel because I thought it would just be cheesy [stuff]. I decided to rent it and see for myself. BOY WAS I WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!! Believe it or not, this really IS just as good as the original.
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.

"Pet Sematary Two" was directed by the same Mary Lambert who directed the original "Pet Sematary" and the similarities in style are clearly evident between the two movies. Once again, Lambert paints a disturbingly dark and morbid picture in part two of this horror movie series.

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...

After his actress mother's tragic, onset death, Jeff Matthews moves with his veterinarian father to the small town of Ludlow, Maine. It's the town where his parents were from, and it also just happens to be the same town in which the entire Creed family met their tragic deaths a few years earlier. And, just as with the Creeds, Jeff, his father, and his new friend Drew will succumb to the deadly curse that is the Pet Sematary, a local bit of cursed ground that brings the dead back to life, but not as they were before. When someone is buried in the Pet Semetary, they come back evil and dangerous!

The first "Pet Semetary", penned by Stephen King, is a horror classic, and deservedly so, despite the fact that the little girl in the film, whose role is pretty major, annoys the heck outta me. It's well written, acted, and truly disturbing and frightening. "Pet Sematary 2" is a film I suppose you either love or hate. The acting is fine, for the most part, very good in some cases, and while the story may be a bit less mature, it is still highly entertaining! It's not as scary as the original film, but it is still creepy and engaging. Edward Furlong is the focal point of the film as Jeff, and he does a good job carrying the picture, while the show does get stolen a bit by Clancy Brown as the ominous and unpleasant Sheriff Gus, Drew's cold and abusive step-father. "Pet Sematary 2" may not be on the level of the first film overall, but in some ways I might even like it more. It's just, well, more fun to watch. It's not as scary, as I said, but it's still pretty dark and messed up. The climax gets a bit hokey, but it's one heck of a ride I do recommend. Go into this one for some great popcorn horror, go to the first for some real Stephen King type stuff.
