"Sometimes, dead is bettah..."

Not sure I will be down with this remake. The other is a Horror masterpiece. If they stick even closer to the book, then it might just work. Will really miss the presence of Fred Gwynne though. :(

I have absolutely no interest in another remake or anything Alexandre Aja has directed or might direct.

However, I think Pet Sematary is a decent film. Overrated by some and underrated by others. It's very interesting, mostly in its' reputation. It's sometimes a lot of fun, sometimes admittedly very scary, and sometimes one of the dumbest films I've ever seen in my life.

I agree Perk-a-Dan but I still liked it. I can't say that about many movies. Fred Gwynne was perfect for the part and yes he will be missed. It will be interesting to see it with todays special effects.

Fred Gwynne was perfect for the part
He's one of the undeniable brilliant touches of the original. Another would be the gore, which is fantastic. I loved the "hide and seek" scene. As most people do- for the scalpel. I loved it more for the throat-ripping. What could they possibly improve on... other than the face leaping out of the water / stonepile bit which was one of the dumber moments in the film. Especially since you can't tell whose face it is. It really looked like the father-in-law. Not Gwynne, who Mary Lambert said it was supposed to look like (thank you, audio commentary).
