Why Salems Lot is the scariest book of Stephen King

    The night I read Salems, I read all of it. No sleep for me. I thought Stephen was God. I loved the movie version, too. It scared the liver and lights out of me.

    grin willard Grin. Boasting a profile u could cut cheese with.

    Pleaze, yer a kid. Or photograph well! Which is really, the same thing. I only had four hrs sleep last nite, unless you count in how many times I hit the snooze. Which was a lot! And I worked 2 jobs & am still awake, and fairly energetic. And I had nightmares! Maybe nightmares don't affect quality of sleep. I don't know. It's still REM. Well I'm up 19 hrs awake. And I'm drinking a Stoli & ginger ale and am about to eat a popsicle!

    Salem's Lot is probably the scariest King book after It. But it's definitely on par with It in other areas. It's one of the most special and memorable reads I've ever had, and when I think about my all-time favorite King books, Salem's Lot is always one of the first few that come to mind.

    Salem's Lot is a little like Ghost Story by Peter Straub. Pure atmospheric terror.

    Salem's Lot certainly left an impression on me as a child. I wouldn't say it warped me, as I was already into things like the Universal monster movies and reading Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine. It was definitely an eye opener in terms of what I thought vampires were all about.
