List Rules
Vote up the reasons that make you want to watch the movie with a friend.

Pet Sematary is definitely a terrifying tale. Not only does it incite fear by turning innocent children into sinister beings, but it also increases the drama, forcing you to care about the Creed family and what happens to them. Even reading the book makes you yearn for some human companionship. 

The 2019 adaptation of Pet Sematary, which received a launch date of April 5, 2019, is likely to be one of the scariest films of the year. In fact, the legendary author Stephen King actually warned viewers about the film's fright-inducing potential.

Even if you're brave enough to watch most horror movies without someone to help ease the tension, there are plenty of reasons why Pet Sematary is too scary to watch alone.
