In Pet Sematary 2, Jeff Matthews (Furlong) is a young boy who is traumatized after witnessing the death of his mother. His father Chase (Edwards) decides to relocate to the small town of Ludow, Maine to lay his mother to rest and make a fresh start. When Jeff discovers that the local pet cemetery contains soil with mysterious powers that can raise the dead. Jeff hastily decides to tempt fate and bury his mother in the cemetery, ultimately learning that sometimes, dead is better.
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a generally pleasing picture, with images that are sharp, with good detail and definition. Colors appear to be well balanced, with accurate fleshtones, rich hues and deep blacks. Contrast and shadow delineation are nicely rendered, with good visual information available in the darkest scenes. Source element artifacts and occasional film grain are revealed. Pixelization and edge enhancement can be distracting, and at times the picture appears slightly unstable and jumpy. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #62 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Widescreen Review is the only place to go for no-nonsense evaluations of the audio and video qualities of a DVD before you drop your hard-earned cash for it. In an industry where the subjective is usually described in the most arcane manner possible (to the exclusion of the unwashed masses), WSR's clear and objective-as-you-can-get reviews give me the information I need to make purchasing decisions confidently.
