Dr. Louis Creed and his wife, Rachel, relocate from Boston to rural Maine with their two young children. The couple soon discover a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near their new home.
King decided Norma Crandall, Jud's wife, wasn't vital to the story when adapting his own book for the 1989 movie because she doesn't appear at all. She shows up briefly in this version to torment Jud.
How long have you lived here?
Jud Crandall: In Maine or in that old house?
Jud Crandall: Well, the answer to both is all my life.
During Louis's first trip to the burial ground, some lightning is seen near the horizon. Thunder follows about a second later. The lightning appears miles distant, and the thunder would have taken much longer to reach Louis's location.
