So, the remake of Pet Sematary was announced for 2019, and someone had to piggyback on it, imitating its title and promo art. That’s pretty much where similarities end. This movie has more in common with 1990’s Flatliners, in fact. The protagonists are summoning the dead during a seance, sacrificing some of their own in the process, with confidence, and expecting improbable results.
If this was marketed as a witchcraft film, it would probably hit its target. There are horror fans, out there, just waiting for the next Pet Graveyard, but perhaps the last thing they want is a zombie cat. This cat, by the way, doesn’t give a damn about the camera, or the actors. Its eyes glow red when it’s angry. This is how you know you’re dealing with a zombie cat.
The actors are talented, but they struggle with dialogue based on a chaotic story. They are charismatic and they’re the best part of the movie. The set designer slept on the job. We’re talking white, undecorated plaster walls in the real world and pitch-black backdrops in the afterlife. Okay, we’ll blame it on finances. For a budget this size, though, this slasher is worth your attention.
