One of my favorite authors is Stephen King and he has two classic pet horror stories that if you haven’t read yet, you really should check out.
The first one is Cujo, a story about a big, lovable dog who contracts rabies and ends up becoming the hound from hell. Not only is the narrative riveting but King incorporates little segments that show the situation through Cujo’s eyes and you can see and feel his slow decent into madness.
The second book is Pet Sematary, a story about a family who’s pet cat dies, so they decide to bury it in a special place with supernatural powers that bring the dead by to life. Stephen King has the ability tell a story about a family with a simple, normal life and twist into something truly horrifying.
Also if you are too busy getting ready for the Halloween Tricks and Treats, the library also has the Hollywood version of these novels on DVD.
