The first sixty odd pages of Salem's Lot is the scariest reading I have ever come across. Why? That's a good question and hard to answer. I last read Salem's Lot about four years ago. There is a sense of dread and confusion and you know it's coming. Also, the central character is very well written and easy to identify with. Salem's Lot is my favorite Stephen King book if not my favorite book ever. I hope they make the movie the way I think it should be made. I didn't mind the original movie. I don't mind Pet Sematary Two as well. I can't remember the name of King's short story that is related to the novel, about the soldier that comes back from war and he gets buried. I love that short story as well.
