Top 'Town With A Secret' Horror Stories

Love those creepy small towns where all is not what it seems. Some of my favorites:

Dark Secret Of Harvest Home - Cornwall Coombe
Children Of The Corn - Gatlin, Nebraska
You Know They Got A Hell Of A Band - Rock N Roll Heaven
The Stepford Wives - Stepford, Connecticut
The Lottery

There must be loads I'm forgetting. What other creepy small towns with a deep dark secret are worth visiting?

Salem's Lot is a good one. Rainy Season and One For The Road are two other good stories by King about two towns with pretty sinister secrets as well.

Of course:

I'd love to see Rainy Season and One For The Road made into films.

So would I. Another good one is Crouch End. They actually aired that in the mini series a few years back Nightmares And Dreamscapes on TNT. The whole mini series was done pretty well I thought.

Those pesky cults and covens.

I see Burned At The Stake takes place in Salem, Mass., a fun loving town.

Satan's Slave gave me a picture for Eye and Tooth removals.

Crouch End is a wonderful story!

Wow Rainbow, you sure know your 80s horror! I don't think I've seen any of those films you mentioned.

I see Demons Of Ludlow was directed by Bill Rebane, director of the classic Giant Spider Invasion.

If there isn't a separate thread for "Top Island with A Secret" then I like to recommend The Wicker Man (1973).
