Sometimes dead is better. Right? Obviously, that’s the iconic line from Pet Sematary that’s been plastered all over the marketing, for obvious reasons, but it’s iconic for a reason. In addition to being endearingly wrong-sounding grammatically (even though it is), it’s also pretty insightful in terms of what it’s addressing.

In the film, a man opts to bring his daughter back to life after a terrible accident. Though while her return may seem like a blessing, the reality is far more horrifying. This new featurette for the film explores this idea, and whether or not we should be willing to go to such desperate lengths to bring back lost loved ones. You can check out said featurette above.

When tragedy strikes, Louis turns to his unusual neighbor, Jud Crandall (#JohnLithgow), setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences. “
