Well it's not as awesome as the first movie, but heck who expected it to be? At the same time I don't think it's nearly as bad as it's reputation would have you believe. Furlong is fine in this as a boy who's mother was electrocuted in front of him, guess where they try to plant her? Aside from having the pet semetary involved this has basically nothing to do with the first story, this is more of a zombie story more than anything. See the boy learns of the burial grounds from his friend who's abusive stepdad is living proof of the semetary's power. The thing I remember the most was the disgusting skinned rabbit, and really this had a few gross things in it. It just seemed like a poor addition to the other film, but on it's own it's alright, it could use a little pepping up and some livelier characters though...
