Remy – Pet Sematary
I realize the loss of a child must be the very worst thing in the world, and I will not pretend to know I know (or want to ever know) what that feels like, or how irrational you may get in the wake of such an event. Having that out of the way, I would still like to believe that, regardless of the tragedy that had befallen me, were I in Pet Sematary, I STILL would have known better than to bury my son in a graveyard that is known to bring pets back from the dead, but bring them back “different.” It’s totally a variation on the classic tale A Monkey’s Paw, and the idea that we need to be careful what we wish for, because we may just get it – though not how we intended.
Again, I cannot pretend to know what goes through your mind when you lose a child, but I really think “bringing him back from the dead” would not be one of the options I would willingly play around with.
Then again, I also would like to think I wouldn’t let me son get run over by a truck, when it could have easily been prevented.
Great film, terrible parents.
