Hello, I've been working my way through this thoughtful book, and one sequence early on has particularly piqued my interest: King's definitions of terror, horror, and revulsion. FYI: Terror: The creeping feeling of dread as the door in a haunted house cracks open just a little bit. You know something ill and foreboding lies beyond, but as yet it is unknowable and outside of your direct sensory information. It's the atmospheric dread of the build-up. Horror: The door swings open and a monster appears. You come face-to-face with a real threat, be it a ghost, bug monster, or wolf man. It is the shock value of immediate dread that hits you. Revulsion: The monster disembowels your stalwart companion, and you lose your lunch. This is the primal, nauseating gross-out level. King views this one as cheap, or perhaps low class. Anyway, I'd like to posit this question to the forum: Can you think of a particular King story that exemplifies one of these categories of horror fiction more than the others? Or that use a combination in an especially satisfying way? For my two cents, I enjoyed the terror build-up in Pet Sematary. The Wendigo seemed unknowable and terrifying, while Gage and Winston were more horrific and revolting.
