* DownerEnding: One of the few totally straight and unambiguous ones King has ever written. [[spoiler: Jud and Rachel are murdered by the resurrected Gage, while Louis has been driven completely insane. He places Rachel's body in the burial ground, and while his ultimate fate at the hands of his newly-resurrected wife is not shown, we can be reasonably certain it won't be pleasant. Ellie is the only member of the Creed family to survive but the ordeal may have left her mentally scarred for life.]]

* RealPlaceBackground: All the towns mentioned in the book actually exist although Ludlow [[ArtisticLicenseGeography is a little over 100 miles north of Bangor]], whereas in the book it's described as a short drive away. The Howard Johnson's where Louis stays before digging up Gage from Pleasant View Cemetery, and the cemetery itself also exist, and in close proximity to Bangor International Airport as mentioned in the book.
