Description Edit

Ludlow is a quaint sleepy hamlet town that borders the coastal village of Castle Rock. It was notable for being the home of famed mystery writer Thad Beuamont, who developed a successful string of novels under the pen name "George Stark". After ceremoniously killing off his alter ego however, George Stark manifested in the real world and began committing murders similar to that of the character from his novels, Alexis Machine.

Another bizarre incident that took place in Ludlow involved a burial mound once used by the Micmac Indians. In later years it was turned into a pet cemetery by children. Those who were buried there however, somehow came back to life.

Such was the case when a cat named Church, which belonged to the Creed family, was killed. The Creeds buried in the pet cemetery, unaware of the supernatural forces at play. The cat came back from the dead, but was deranged. Shortly thereafter, the Creed's young son, Gage, was tragically killed in an automobile accident. Despite all warnings by neighbor Jed Crandall, father Louis Creed buried his son in the pet cemetery. Gage was resurrected, but possessed a murderous demeanor, which satiated by killing Jud Crandall and his own mother, Ellie Creed.
