WHOLE LOT OF TERROR
Welcome back for the final installment of our twisted trip through the mind and fictional Maine landscape of famed horror writer Stephen King.
Our final destination is the mysterious and mournful town called Jerusalem’s Lot, a blighted burgh whose history of unexplained happenings dates all the way back to colonial times.
Of course, the most obvious and informative introduction to Jerusalem’s Lot is the appropriately named Salem’s Lot, a chilling and critically acclaimed mini series concerning the town’s gradual takeover by a manipulative master vampire.
As the townspeople slowly succumb to the ways of the night, it becomes apparent that the town isn’t big enough for both the living and the dead.
The forsaken fields of Jerusalem’s lot are also mentioned in The Shining, perhaps the most well-known of all cinematic King adaptations.
Just as the Lot is haunted by dark deeds of the past, so too is the Torrance family as they are bedeviled by the restless spirits of an isolated hotel.
Even more grounded Stephen King fare like fan favorite Stand by Me contains some mention of the weird and wild Jerusalem’s lot.
The moving tale of boyhood adventure may not seem likely to reference such a dark habitat, but in the King universe darkness is always lurking in the corners.
