Review by Dany Swim
Since 2016, when Hollywood isn’t busy making 300 million dollar budgeted super-hero blockbusters, in attempts to launch another cinematic universe, then it’s probably banking on your nostalgia for your childhood dreams or in this case; Fears. Halloween (2018) is a recent example of a film trying to replicate a flavor that hasn’t been in stock since the early 80’s, it didn’t go beyond that, but it had fans wanting more the moment the opening credits showed a rotten pumpkin reverting to its prime. And if that ain’t a literal metaphor for Hollywood bringing back some classic horror films, then I probably really deserved that C on my creative writing class. Today I just witnessed another attempt at the rebirth/remake/reboot in the genre, the Stephen King classic Pet Sematary.
