I've read the book and seen the movie. This is one of the rare exceptions that I like the movie better than the book, but I didn't really enjoy either one a whole lot. One of my least favorite King stories.
Favorite movie dad - I can't think of one off the top of my head. I do like Tom Mason (Noah Wylie) from Falling Skies.
I'm looking for my inner athlete, but I'm afraid I may have eaten her. If I'm very quiet I can hear her screams of terror.
Pet Sematary was a great book and movie. My favorite horror dad is..... Jim Thurman from the book The Rising by Brian Keene. He is trapped in an underground bunker during the zombie apocalypse. His son is hundreds of mile away in an attic with his mom and Step-dad zombies and downstairs. He manages to get out one phone call and it is to his dad. Dad has to believe his son will survive and he goes to rescue him. Yes, the animals are zombiefied also. Great book and great dad. This would be a great film.

I love Pet Semetery! It is perhaps my favorite book ever and I really like the movie as well! I think my favorite movie dad would be David Callaway from Hide And Seek. On the really twisted side I like is Man from The People Under The Stairs.

Today's movie was chosen based on the dad in the movie... Pet Sematary. A dad who would do ANYTHING for his family.
I'm sure most of you have seen this movie. I watched it again recently, myself. Always a good one to me. How about you?
Do you have a favorite horror movie dad? One of my favorite horror movie dads is Jack Torrence... but I think I posted the Shining not too long ago, didn't I? Or how about the dad in Frailty... he THOUGHT he was doing his best for them.... and we can't forget Darth Vader! :)
. I hope you (especially you Dads!) have a wonderful and relaxing day!
