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.
Despite a good cast this movie falls hard due to lackluster production design and a very weak script. It starts out in a pedestrian fashion but manages to entertain nonetheless but after 30 minutes it becomes apparent that the director and the screenwriter does not have what it takes. The actors are left adrift with a terrible plot and rote dialogue.
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.
