Don’t miss the classic tale from King of Horror and #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, described by Publishers Weekly as “the most frightening novel Stephen King has ever written.”
When the Creeds move into a beautiful old house in rural Maine, it all seems too good to be true: physician father, beautiful wife, charming little daughter, adorable infant son—and now an idyllic home. As a family, they’ve got it all…right down to the friendly car.
But the nearby woods hide a blood-chilling truth—more terrifying than death itself—and hideously more powerful.
The Creeds are going to learn that sometimes dead is better.
Renowned for its superior productions, BBC radio may have outdone itself by adapting Stephen King’s Pet Sematary to audio. A clamorous cacophony of talking, whining, whistling, and howling, Pet Sematary is a quick, entertaining earful for those who don’t have other auditory distractions to contend with, such as a car full of talking whining, whistling, howling children. However, the melodramatic prose marries well with the acting; such is the case when one reader–whose voice bears an uncanny resemblance to Kramer’s from Seinfeld–tells another about the effects of the Pet Sematary: “Heroin makes junkies feel good when they put it in their arms, but all the time it’s poisoning their mind and body–this place can be like that and don’t you ever forget it!” (Running time: three hours, two cassettes)
