Title: Pet Sematary (1989)

"Sometimes dead is better"

 

 Pet Sematary is a well-known cult classic from the revered and demented mind of Stephen King himself. The characters were instantaneously imprinted in our minds with each of their stories; even Zelda, who may have been the greatest scene stealer of them all. Nonetheless, Gage was the one who stole my heart. Pet Sematary did not have a happy ending yet I loved it. I first watched this premise when I was 9 years old. I think it helped me with dealing and accepting death. That it is okay for things to end.  And in the words of Jud "Sometimes, Dead is Better". 

 

 

 

The WTF: There were so many WTF moments in Pet Sematary. Such as the final scene with the kiss...

 

The one with Gage becoming Zelda from her youth painting

What's up with that painting anyway?

The one with a deader than dead Victor Pascow yet speaking

Every scenes with Church after the MICMAC burial ground

A vicious slicer and dicer Gage

All of the depictions of crazed Zelda

The one that got under my skin is a disfigured post mortem Rachel with her eye socket oozing disgusting cadaver fluid yet managing to seduce her deranged husband...ay ya yay!
