On The Flap
Can Stephen King scare even himself?
Has the author of Carrie, The Shining, Cujo, and Christine ever conceived a story so horrifying that he was for
a time unwilling to finish writing it? Yes. This is it.
Set in a small town in Maine to which a young doctor, Louis Creed, and his
family moved from Chicago, Pet Sematary begins with a visit to the graveyard in the woods
where generations of children have buried their beloved pets. But behind the
"pet sematary," there is another burial ground, one that lures people to it with

mostly you do it because once you've been up there, it's your place, and you belong to it
" ... up in the Pet Sematary -- and beyond.
