‘Salem’s Lot

(1 customer review)

£10.99

‘Turn off the television – in fact, why don’t you turn off all the lights except for the one over your favourite chair? – and we’ll talk about vampires here in the dim. I think I can make you believe in them.’ Stephen King, from the Introduction.

‘Salem’s Lot is a small New England town with the usual quota of gossips, drinkers, weirdos and respectable folk.

Of course there are tales of strange happenings – but not more than in any other town its size. Ben Mears, a moderately successful writer, returns to the Lot to write a novel based on his early years, and to exorcise the terrors that have haunted him since childhood. The event he witnessed in the house now rented by a new resident.

A newcomer with a strange allure. A man who causes Ben some unease as things start to happen: a child disappears, a dog is brutally killed – nothing unusual, except the list starts to grow. Soon surprise will turn to bewilderment, bewilderment to confusion and finally to terror . . .

  1. Paula Fullerton (verified owner)

    This has a sense of foreboding from the very start. Similar to the feeling I got when I first watched Twin Peaks… there is such a sense of menace hanging over the town of ‘Salem Lot. Highly recommend. Terrifying doesn’t describe it.
