King's last novel contracted with Doubleday was inspired when his daughter's cat was run over on the road just outside their home. In 1989, it was adapted into a much loved horror film, and in April 2019, 30 years after the original, a new adaptation was released starring Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz and John Lithgow.
King has gone on record stating that of all the novels he has written, Pet Sematary is the one which genuinely scared him the most.
