Don’t miss the classic tale from King of Horror and #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, described by Publishers Weekly as “the most frightening novel Stephen King has ever written.”

When the Creeds move into a beautiful old house in rural Maine, it all seems too good to be true: physician father, beautiful wife, charming little daughter, adorable infant son—and now an idyllic home. As a family, they’ve got it all…right down to the friendly cat.

But the nearby woods hide a blood-chilling truth—more terrifying than death itself...and hideously more powerful.

The Creeds are going to learn that sometimes dead is better.


  • Pet Sematary: the most terrifying novel?

    By DKR review
    This novel is hands down my favorite Stephen King novel ever written, it scared the hell out of me and I couldn’t be more excited that they are remaking the movie which comes out next year. I highly recommend this book to those who are new to or familiar with Stephen King.

    Great book. I want to know what happens next :(...didn't care for the Jesus references but still some good lessons about that. P.s., I was attacked by a cat while reading this book 😓
  • Made My Skin Crawl!

    By Dwardeng
    One of the scariest novels I've ever read. Right up there with Dracula, Frankenstein, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and the works of Poe and Lovecraft. King, using supernatural tribal elements slowly and methodically destroys a family. The ending is absolutely terrifying. The only problem Mr. King, is that I don't read your books anymore because I really think you bested yourself with this one.
  • My second favorite King novel

    I loved this book. So much better than the movie, and kept me on the edge of my seat. Worth the read.
  • Just okay

    By Khuyrg
    Scary parts are few and far between. Lots of unnecessary daily life details and dialogue that drag on. I really only enjoy the cat parts. Meow.
  • King's best work
