AllMusic Review by

While Elliot Goldenthal's first Hollywood score pays obvious homage to landmark efforts like Bernard Herrmann's Psycho and Lalo Schifrin's The Amityville Horror, Pet Sematary also succeeds on its own terms, introducing many of the avant-garde approaches that would distinguish the composer from his contemporaries in the years to follow. Employing a small orchestral ensemble, electronics and the wordless vocals of a boys' choir, Goldenthal crafts music of uncommon atmosphere and visceral intensity; his more experimental techniques never lapse into self-indulgence, instead serving the narrative by subverting listener expectations time and again.
