Review By Wesley Collins
As living and breathing vessels with thoughts outside of ourselves, I’d like to think we as humans all explore the world of death through thought and imagination. We think about death so much we often times bring about our own demises. We create and seek that which ultimately destroys us. This unfortunately will always be an undoing of the human race. We’re not comfortable with just research and excavation. We must push things around us and ourselves to extinction. Its seemingly apart of our genetic make up.
Pet Graveyard is a really intense film with a lot of movement. Three young people who met online decide to channel death in an attempt to contact loved ones. They believe they’ll have the ability to brink on the edges of living and dying, reach the other side alive and know death personally. To their surprise, upon returning to the world of the living, their worlds’ spiral as they all must fight to keep death from what he feels he’s owed.
Each scene in Pet Graveyard is pivotal as the main characters seek answers as to what’s taking place around them. I was on the proverbial edge of my seat throughout the film as I was anxious to witness what death would do next. Death is given a rather unique personality and approach that I believe others who watch this film will enjoy also. We all know the only date we truly have is a death date. Unfortunately for the characters in this film, they potentially expedited their own death date and the film does a great job displaying how everyone’s life is affected as a result and whether they’re able to overcome and defeat death.
PET GRAVEYARD is scheduled for release on dvd/digital on April 2nd. Uncork’d Entertainment is handling worldwide distribution.
