Now it might seem at first like King is just treading over familiar Horror terrain:; But Salem's Lot is full of energy, great characters, and, of course, a lotta horror.

What makes Salem's Lot so frightening aren't the vampires, strangely enough. For me, it is King's portrayal of the deep secrets that lurk behind small-town America. Behind every closed door and smiling neighbor lies something dark, strange, and often, cruel. King's description of all this takes place long before the vampires ever hit the scene.
