Pet Sematary II (1992) Review:

Mary Lambert returns to directing a sequel from her classic and truly scary horror film, Pet Sematary. The first movie is clearly better than the sequel, but surprisingly, I found that one more enjoyable to watch. It’s a valid point that the first film was so ultra-depressing, that the sequel had a good chance of being an easier watch. However, not only was Lambert’s sequel more entertaining but the feel, pace and writing were at a complete 180 degrees. The writing was lighter and often contained humorous dialogues, especially by Sheriff Gilbert. Edward Furlong, Anthony Edwards and Jason McGwire were all great but Clancy Brown stole the show as the Sheriff, and absolutely nailed the dinner scene and one-liners.

The movie is undoubtedly a guilty pleasure for myself, but many viewers may not enjoy the quirkiness and good amount of odd disconnected scenes. Important to note is that there isn’t a lot of mercy shown towards characters in this movie either. It’s dark, gritty and with way more humor and gore. Take a chance on Pet Sematary II, it is often overlook (since Stephen King didn’t write a book on the story) but it is well worth the watch.
