Pet Sematary

Pet Sematary by The Ramones

We hesitate to include this, since it’s by no means a terrible song. It’s the bloody Ramones! But what’s bizarre is its inclusion at the end of one of the bleakest horror movies of the decade. We’ve seen small children killed, been witness to genuinely horrific flashback nightmares, and the film, shall we say, does not end in a happy place. Then we leave the theatre or switch off the video to this cheery slice of gabba-gabba-hey. On the up side though, it’s a bit of a relief.

Heartbeat, heartbeat uh-oo-whoah-oooh... Repeat until insane. About as out of step with the cool clinical film that preceded the song as it is possible to imagine More
