If you're super into Pet Sematary I guess it's worth a watch. I found it poorly put together (it starts with a long text crawl - just gray text on a black screen...why?), and it includes a lot of detail that would end up on the cutting room floor of most documentaries. A good documentary should give you the impression they had 10 hours of good stuff and had to cram it into an hour and a half. This gives you the impression they had 20 minutes of material and stretched it out. Some of the people they interview seem like they had very little to do with the movie. Then there's this guy that kept popping up with "Filmmaker" under his name, and all of his interview segments were obviously not interviews at all. He sounded like he was reciting memorized essays. I hit pause and looked him up, and he has one credit as a director - this movie. He was interviewing himself. Who does that?
So interesting! Even if you are not a fan of pet semetary it's still a great behind the scenes documentary if you are interested in filmmaking.
