I think the Wendigo was in PET SEMETERY. The Wendigo was the thing that gave the graveyard the power to re-animate what was buried there.
Yup in the novel it said it cursed the Micmac burial ground for whatever body is buried there will return as a bad shell of their former selves. The resurrected aren't zombies they are demon possessed corpses who return as demons themselves possessed by the Wendigo spirit demon as they are more like Deadites with a hint of Reagan/Pazazu in Exorcist 1 and 3 since they return to torment the living as zombies are just mindless dumb creatures, the PS resurrected especially Gage to Timmy to even Gus in the film version's sequel came back as demons with the Wendigo alive inside their bodies being used as puppets and controlled by the Wendigo especially in the novel when demon-Gage before he killed Jud he spoke with his wife's voice inside the mouth then said "I'm gonna fuck with you" before killing him with the scalpel then ate a bit of his mom after killing her.
Now the video game Until Dawn exploits the Wendigo.
"Unicorn, mermaid, sorceress, vampire, gargoyle, werewolf, elf...no name you could give her would surprise or frighten me, i love whom i love"-Prince Lir in The Last Unicorn (book and movie).
It'd be an interesting antagonist. Either that or a snallygaster. That's our Chupacabre here.
The snallygaster! Eternal question: is the Maryland Snallygaster (sounds like Lewis Carroll could have come up with it) related to the Jersey Devil? And why doesn’t Pennsylvania have its own monster-demon-thing?
New Jersey: Jersey Devil
Maryland/D.C.: Snallygaster, Goatman
West Virginia: Mothman
Puerto Rico/Texas/Mexico: Chupacabra
What else? (This should probably go on my folklore thread.)
Oh, and apropos of the OP, there was a great Wendigo story in Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.
”…and all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by…”
