Un update to the "Pet Sematary" story in a weird science "Flatliners" scenario. This reabilitation of an old narrative gives it a modern frankenstein feel and, sadly, a underachieved paranormal ringu-like aesthetics. The most predictable and anoying aspects, though, I found, were the thriller constructed narrative and the female trauma turned to histeric rage background theme. Oh, and not that scary, too.
I almost feel ashamed for watching this. I almost feel like being insulted. I almost feel that ''Insidious'' is a masterpiece compared to this. I can't even grasp the shittiness of this movie. Why did I watch this, my horse?
Oh dear. It's the usual tragedy: a flicker of an interesting premise wasted by a singularly derivative script wholly dependent on cheap, predictable jump scares, undercooked plot elements and a hard-headed anti-Science bias. Should 'Pet Sematary''s Stephen King have sued for plagiarism?
Great actors and a very strong sci-fi bottle story couldn't quite stay together with the glue of a very formulaic and predictable horror structure. But, two days later I am still thinking about the morality and questions brought forth in the premise.
