Given Hollywood’s current concurrent tendencies toward restart hosting and Stephen King’s properties, it should probably come as no surprise that a series of past film adaptations of the Master of Horror is ready for review. Particularly when you consider the critical and commercial success of the new 2017 version of “It” and the notorious unevenness of previous screen adaptations.
This brings us to the latest version of King’s “Cemetery Cursed”. This new film, based on King’s 1983 novel of the same name, is a remake of the 1989 version directed by Mary Lambert. This film tells the story of the Creed family and their move to a small rural village, wherein the forest behind their new home, they find a dark and dark place, a place where death is no longer an end, but the beginning of a much more horrible world.
However, while the cast selected is stellar and co-directors Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer do not lack skill, the final result does not clarify the line established by the novel or the original film. That’s not to say that this version doesn’t have merit, but those with a strong attachment to previous works will probably be somewhat disappointed.
Louis Creed (Jason Clarke) is a Boston doctor who decided to move with his family to the small town of Ludlow, Maine and practice his beautiful profession there. His wife Rachel (Amy Seimetz) and children Ellie (Jete Laurence) and Gage (Hugo and Lucas Lavoie) join him as they move from the bustling streets of the city to an old farmhouse on a vast expanse of land.
It doesn’t take long for the Credos to witness something strange: a procession of children, wearing masks, who enter the forest behind the house. As a result, they learn that their properties house the city’s “Pet Cemetery,” a place where villagers bury their dead pets, thanks to neighbor Judy (John Lithgow) who provides the information.
Although there is really something else in the forest, something buried in the recesses of the trees. And when Ellie’s beloved is hit by a car on a nearby road, Jud takes Louis on a journey that reveals how powerful the forces in the forest area. It really is sinister and powerful. A horrible tragedy occurs, Louis is called into the forest once again, through whispers. There is something deep in those woods, something that opens the doors that are meant to remain always closed. Something that turns the endings into twisted and terrifying continuations.
This remake of “Cementerio Maldito” is a softer version of what the previous novel or film tells. In some ways, that work, securing the narrative with quiet moments that increase tension. There is more than one tragedy in this story, but that sense of sweeping is more or less absent in this version.
The film is well made, with some solid aesthetic options. The compass is solid and the fears are there for the first part of the film, but the third act of the film is too fast and at the same time not fast enough; The end of the film also sees some changes that the King’s fans will not find well.
This new “Cemetery Maldito” is terrifying on its way, with strong performances and an interesting look. But it is also strangely accelerated with some discordant changes to the source material. Overall, he’s pretty good, but not good enough to hit his predecessor from his pedestal.
