  1. Pet Sematary by Stephen King

Although Stephen King is noted for his works like Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption, Carrie, The Shining, and The Stand, Pet Sematary is definite must-read for people who are looking for a really dark and disturbing read. The novel starts out sweet and innocent as Dr. Louis Creed and his family moved to rural Maine. Even though they are close to the ideal family and living in a calm and tranquil home, the horrors began to creep in when the family’s cat, Church, was run over by a car. Knowing that Louis’ daughter will be devastated from the loss, Jud—the Creeds’ neighbor—decided to help Louis by taking him to the ‘pet sematary’ (a misspelled sign by the local kids), which was located behind the Creeds’ home. Beyond the ‘pet sematary’ was a secret burial ground built by the Native Americans where, according to Jud, resurrects the dead back to life. When Church came back to life, things began to operate smoothly again until Gage, Louis’ son, was hit by a truck. Desperate to have his son back, Louis exhumed Gage’s corpse then buried him in the Micmac burial ground. Gage came back as a demonic monster, proving that there are times it is better to leave the dead alone.

  1. A Dark-Adapted Eye by Ruth Rendell (as Barbara Vine)

The story is set during the World War II, with the story narrated by Faith Severn, who recounts her memories of her two, snobbish and vain aunts: Vera and Eden. At the encouragement of a crime writer, Faith expounded on her aunts’ lives like how Vera had a poor relationship with her son Francis and devotes her time in taking care of her younger sister Eden. When she was 40 years old, Vera gave birth to Jaime and was immediately attached to the baby. Unable to bear a child, Eden began to assert her right to adopt Jaime, using her husband’s wealth and power against Vera. Later, however, Vera was condemned to death for murder. Who did Vera kill and why? What happened before the murder? Who finally won custody over Jaime?
