*** Irwin Goldman, he hates Louis, but his latest anger towards Louis is partially justified due to [[spoiler:his grandson's death at a very young age and some of Irwin's rage towards Louis was probably out of grief too then just spite]].

* UncannyValley: People and animals brought back by the burying ground usually have this effect on the living. Even for those that aren't in the know, there's something just not ''right'' about them. Louis describes a time when Church jumped into a visitor's lap, and they almost immediately pushed the cat away, somehow sensing that there is something inherently ''wrong'' about the cat. [[spoiler:Jud's story about Timmy Baterman being brought back shows that it's even stronger with other humans.]]

** This was exploited by the filmmakers when they cast a man as Zelda, as they knew it would made her even more weird-looking and unsettling.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: A rare case of ''Author'' Apathy - King was afraid of publishing the novel feeling the thing was too bleak and hopeless. Then it appeared to be a way out of his Doubleday contract, and he submitted it (to his surprise, audiences loved it).

** "Oz the Gweat and Tewwible" strikes some readers as creepy and some as mood-breakingly goofy.

** "Oz the Gweat and Tewwible" strikes some readers as creepy and some as mood-breakingly goofy. It's a hallmark of King's style to [[{{Bathos}} juxtapose the grim with the absurd]] (see ''Literature/{{It}}'' for many examples); whether it's clever or Narmy is up to the reader.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: [[spoiler: At the very end when Louis buries Rachel in the burial ground, is it simply a case of him being driven mad with grief, leading to him repeating his mistakes all over again? Or deep down, does a part of him know that Rachel will simply become a murderous abomination just like Church and Gage did, and is doing it to get her to kill him in some sort of penance for what his actions resulted in, performing a sort of SuicideByCop if you will?]]
