I haven't read all the replies to your post, so this might have already been said, but...
You're right. SHAME ON YOU! A movie will almost never equal the book, and Steve is known for writing very long novels, which cannot possibly fit into a mere 2-hour movie.
I'm not knocking movies. I watch them regularly. Typically, even when I really like a movie, I will notice all the really good parts that didn't make the transition from the book.
Anyway, in response to your question. I really loved Pet Sematary.
