Author Stephen King is known for his terrifying books that have been transformed into even more gut-wrenching movies.

Writers Matt Greenberg and Jeff Buhler have done a fairly true novel-to-screen screenplay of King’s book Pet Sematary.

Pet Sematary follows the Creed family as they move from comfortable city life to middle-of-nowhere house in the woods when Dr. Louis Creed takes a job as the head physician at a local college. They find spooks and scares of the small town they now live in— including a pet cemetery in their very own backyard. After the family realizes that the pet cemetery is more than just an ordinary cemetery, they run haywire trying to piece their life back together.

The movie not only focuses on what happens to dead when they die, but it has a large hand in asking the big what if question. Pet Sematary may be a movie meant for jump scares and horrors, but it brings a chilling realization to us all — what really happens after death? It was released on April 5 with a gross income of $54 million.

The movie sticks generally close to the book (with the exception of one character’s demise), which is a good thing for those who hate movies that drift far from their original draft. Similarly to all King’s movies, it doesn’t follow the book line by line due to the length of the book itself, but the movie does its justice.

Pet Sematary was a 10/10 for both horrifying scenes and a captivating plot line. King and the other screenwriters knew which parts to keep and which parts to throw out regarding the book it’s based off of.

For someone who watched half the movie through their hands, Pet Sematary is a Stephen King must see.
