So, I'm going to link the video so all of you can have it running through your head as well! Kickin' it old school =)
Pet Sematary - The Ramones
Okay, let me just go ahead and say there will be **SPOILERS** for those that haven't read the book or seen the movie.
I have seen the movie about 6 million 5 hundred and 8 times. And I love it! THIS is the first time I have read the book, and as there ar ...more
Louis Creed and his family have recently moved to the town of Ludlow, Maine. Behind their house there is a path that leads to a 'Pet Sematary', where the children of surrounding areas have buried their beloved pets in years gone by. Deeper in the woods there lies an ancient Indian burial ground, that Louis discovers has some sinister properties when their family cat dies...
It's no secret that Pet Sematary is my f ...more
1. It is one of two Stephen King books I finished in one sitting (the other being The Dead Zone)
2. When I was a kid, I had to make sure the cover of this book was not facing out or I could not sleep. I didn't even like to look at it when I was awake!
It’s probably wrong to believe there can be any limit to the horror which the human mind can experience. On the contrary, it seems that some exponential effect begins to obtain as deeper and deeper darkness falls—as little as one may like to admit it, human experience tends, in a good many ways, to support the idea that when the nightmare grows black enough, horror spawns horror, one coincidental evil begets other, often more deliberate evils, until finally blackness seems to cover everything....more
KING calls Pet Sematary his scariest book, and I can understand why. It is super creepy and super "shocking" where he takes the reader, and his interesting prologue explaining how he came to write this unsettling tale brings a bit of truth to the story.
While truly a horror of a read, it is excellent in respect to its genre, but just awful too if that makes any sense. PS is not particularly gory, but definitely sad, sick, dark, and disgusting with more t...more
Classic King is my comfort place. It's where I choose to live. This beloved story was even more impactful the second time through!
When Dr. Louis Creed decides to move his growing family from Chicago to rural Maine, he could never guess how much that one decision could impact their lives. Like another good 'doctor' before him, Victor Frankenstein, Louis is about to discover the hard way that...
This is really such an incredible story. King's writin ...more
2nd reading, and it still remains my favorite book that I've read so far.
Once upon a time when I was a child, I remember talking with my family about horror movies. Somebody asked what was the scariest movie you've watched, and my mom without thinking said 'Pet Sematary'. I remember laughing and saying 'How on earth could a movie n ...more
When I first read Pet Sematary (I couldn't have been older than 13) I knew right away that it was more than a typical scary story. For one, it made me feel decades older. Wiser. More entuned ...more
I’m so glad I finally read Pet Sematary! What a creepy book. The unease and anxiety just keeps building in this book and it's brutal!
I’ll have to be honest here.
(view spoiler)[I almost couldn’t get through this book because of the grief Stephen King puts the readers through. It overwhelmed me since it felt similar to what I went through in regards to the deaths of my father and brother. (hide spoiler)]
That’s some damn fine writing since it affected me so bad!
But I pressed on an ...more
NEVER PLAY WITH THE BEYOND
I was familiarized with the story since I have watched several times the 1998's film adaptation, but I hadn't properly read the original novel and since it's already announced a new film adaptation for April next year (2019), I thought that it was about time to read the book.
Certainly it's one of the scariest books by Stephen King, in my humble opinion, not only due the main topic but mainly due the characters involved and their interactions.
This is one of the best books I read this year.
Of course, the story is very well written and certainly creepy. At first, I personally thought that this book will be a little bit different, but actual content didn’t disappoint.
While reading, I was constantly guessing how the whole thing was supposed to end, because I really couldn't come up with a possible and fitting solution. But of course, Stephen King knew what to do! He left so much room for an individual interpretation, which is why this is one of my favorite endings to a book ever.
I talk about how much I love King's writing style in every single of my reviews of one of his books ...more
This is the book that really convinced me that hardcore horror novels are not for me. At all.
I can't remember if I was already the mother of a toddler when I read this. Those final scenes from the book have seeped into my psyche. Like the last hundred or so pages of Outlander, these are images that are permanently part of my brain, that I really wish I'd never put there.
The two stars are in recognition ...more
When I was ten years old, my mother and her best friend Andrita took a trip to the local drive-in to catch a showing of Pet Sematary. My father was out with his own buddies, so guess who got to tag along? Yup, me. My mother told me to go to sleep in the back seat, and then p ...more
Video review here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPzUd...
While a third into this Stephen King book, it dawned on me why King had such a strong fan base around the world in the 80s, and was the hottest name in popular fiction. It came to me that reading such a well-written horror book was legitimately one of the most primal, adult things I could do. That's because this type of book can have its own brand of hangover. Luckily, I've not yet dreamed of Zelda, the most terrifying monster in this book.
King had a handle on the human mind. He could then - ...more
