Pet Sematary 2019 – new but not improved

After seeing the new remake of the Pet Sematary,  I went home and dust off the original dvd and rewatched it again because somehow I found the new remake is not as scary as the original one despite the fact that the second half of the new version was completely altered to keep the story fresh. And I was right, the original one was much scarier and more grotesque. Even in the new horror standard. Somehow the sleeker production and awkward pacing stripped away the scare factor of this horror classic. That’s too bad because the actors in the new remake are pound per pound, much better caliber of actors than the ones in the original version.
