One of King's few forays into Lovecraftian horror. Also shades of Stoker's Dracula with the epistoltary form of the story. A good read. King wears his influence's on his sleeve in this one.

I loved this story & also think it would make a great movie...kind of like The Village, but a lot better. This story scared the crap out of me when I was younger, & I recently reread it, & it still scares the crap out of me.

I thought this was one of his most powerful stories ever! Everything, including the Stoker-esque style of letters and diary entries is rivetting. Yet no postings. Surprised. I'd enter this as the number 1 story for a movie if I had my way...

What an excellent short story. I first experienced this peice via audiobook, and as always turned off the lights to listen to it in the silence of my own mind and imagination. Wonderful. It took me on a journey that reminded me of Old Testament rage, sinful tribes and civilizations, and the oppressive force of a hungry and ancient evil. The sheer potency of the evil presence described in this story is most striking, and we get to take a front row seat to watch as a head strong man tests his power of will against the seething, hissing rage of uncountable ages. This is not to be confused with 'Salem's Lot, but is an equally great tale giving us a glimpse of a purely evil force.
