An exciting, gruesome and macabre if not entirely faithful adaptation of Stephen King's novel, this supernatural zombie horror thriller offers good frights, nice acting and shocks abound. Fred Gwynne whom you remember as Herman Munster does a fantastic and perfect performance as the lovable old man and there is a memorable score with some genuine tension, Miko Hughes makes a memorable performance as the three year old zombie murderer with a fetish for scalpals. It's also a gripping tale of supernatural horror you'll never forget and coming in 2008 is a remake that will be more faithful to the novel.
This DVD has great picture and sound with only three extras being three featurettes and no trailer, but this is still a must have for zombie and horror fans.

The extras are the same ones from the DVD but still worth a watch, covering the genesis of the story, the film's production and reflections from cast and crew. You'll get through them in no time at all and director Mary Lambert's commentary track adds to the fun.
Personally, I love this movie. It's downright creepy and has an amazing turn by Fred Gwynne as neighbor Jud Crandall. On a somewhat related note, the last time I saw this film, I didn't have kids and at this point in time, I have two boys. "Pet Sematary" has become a completely different movie to me now and has become even more terrifying now that I fully and truly understand the implications of the story's events and the true horror of what it is to even imagine being in the main character's place.
