Pet Sematary: Bloodlines Review – A Disappointing Prequel

“Pet Sematary: Bloodlines” is a 1969 prequel to the 2019 adaptation, but lacks compelling narrative, introduces new characters, and adds little depth or intrigue.

The film’s credibility is undermined by its abrupt plot involving a grieving father and a resurrected son, which disregards the moral dilemma in King’s original story.

The film’s main character, Jud Crandall, lacks fresh perspective and a compelling plot, with flashbacks and underdeveloped relationships, leaving viewers uninterested.

The film’s central zombie son and undead dog conflict lacks depth and explores shallow themes, lacking original King’s themes of grief and death consequences.

“Pet Sematary: Bloodlines” is a subpar horror prequel, lacking fresh storylines and character development, and fails to live up to Stephen King’s legacy.
