As with most remakes, this one should have stayed dead, which echoes the basic plot: A family moves into a country home near the titular burial ground, which reanimates any animal or human that’s buried there. Anyone who cherished the original or hews to the book might be upset by some of the plot point reworking. There’s a profusion of jump scares and some of them work, but when it’s time to create real suspense, this directing duo (Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch) falls short. It does manage to maintain a sense of dread and the performances are strong, but it breaks no new ground for the genre (pun intended), is only mildly scary and really didn’t need to be dug up again (pun again).
