    Pet Sematary (2019)

    Did anyone see this movie when it came out? Is it any good?

    I vaguely remember seeing the original, so no- sorry I can't give a review.

    What I can do is relate the dread I had while reading the book and realizing what was coming as the truck approached. I said to myself, "Don't do this you (insert the worst epithet you know here...) !! (Referring to the author, of course.). My blood pressure is rising even now as I type this...

    I did not see the first one and did not know there was a second one.
    I have no plans to see it, even if it shows up on free TV.

    I read the book back in the 80's. It isn't so much scary as disgusting and made me uneasy. King is like that for the most part - he rarely has any truly good people in his stories and most appear either stupid or are just unlikable (caveat - I did read a LOT of King in the 80's and my favorite was actually The Stand...until it went right off the rails into metapsychobabble).

    I also watched the movie from the early 90's (? - too lazy to check) and it tried to give that same aura of unease while not really being more than a run-of-the-mill jump-scare flick, for the most part.

    I have not seen the new one but have seen several reviews of it and know that the story has been changed significantly and lots of stuff has been added that wasn't even in the book.

    I tend not to see movies made from books because I am usually disappointed in the result. I’ve read most of King’s earlier work and enjoyed them, especially “The Stand” and “Needful Things”, but as time went on King became more dark and twisted. I won’t even try to read his recent stuff for two reason, it’s really out there and he’s a very vocal flaming liberal.

    There are "four boxes" that can be employed to resist the downfall of America, the ballot box, the soap box, the jury box and, lastly, the ammo box.

    The only SK book I've ever read is MISERY. My daughter recommended it to me to read. i FOUND IT GRUESOME, but, relistically, I've kw a few like that when I was a young, crazy guy.

    Never found myself desiring to see one of the movi9es.

    You must be careful what you pretend to be, because in the end, you are what you pretend to be.
    ....................Kurt Vonnegut, in "Mother Night"

    All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted. . . . . . . . . . . . .. — Frank Herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune
