‘Pet Sematary: Bloodlines’ Review: Prequel Doesn’t Prove Its Existence

I agree when we say Paramount+ needs more original content that will attract audiences, they definitely need more subscribers and making prequels, spin-offs, and sequels from other movies is indeed a good idea. I’ll just spill and tell you that Pet Sematary: Bloodlines is one of the worst horror movies of the year, staying only behind Winnie The Pooh: Blood And Honey.

This movie feels soulless and lazy, like if they didn’t even wanted to do this. It doesn’t prove why it exists and why it’s important for the future of this franchise, its 80-minute runtime makes it rushed and in the most stupid way possible. I confess I had small hopes during the second act, where things were going well together but the third act literally got me laughing because of how they “destroyed” the evil that was there.

Pet Sematary: Bloodlines takes place in 1969, when a young Jud Crandall has dreams of leaving his hometown of Ludlow, Maine behind, but soon discovers sinister secrets buried within and is forced to confront a dark family history that will forever keep him connected to Ludlow. Banding together, Jud and his childhood friends must fight an ancient evil that has gripped Ludlow since its founding, and once unearthed has the power to destroy everything in its path.

You might be wondering why does this movie not work. Well I’ll give you the answer I can get you: it’s simply a generic horror movie where there is an evil in the town and they gotta do something to kill it but they do it in such a rushed way that made the movie look stupid and non-sense.

Perfomances are really solid, not bad at all, Jackson White and Forrest Goodluck are the highlights for sure. Cinematography for the movie was really simple and so was the rest of the technical aspects, the score was nothing special and neither was the CGI. There’s not really a lot to talk about this movie, it’s a dull yet rushed horror flick that is definitely not worth your time during this Halloween season.

The movie is extremely brutal and bloody, of course the movie got its positive aspects, it’s those type of horror movies that will leave you disgusted. There were some interesting scenes that definitely had my attention, but nothing different from what we’re used to in these type of movies.

Pet Sematary: Bloodlines is a rushed prequel that doesn’t prove its existence. The script is lazy and dull, bringing just another generic horror movie with a boring ending. The cast was good delivering solid performances.
