I'm trying to find out the name of this short story (I thought it was by Stephen King but apparently not) about these people that go into a cornfield, get lost and find a dying dog, and they slowly go mad and there's this big sacrificial stone and they basically kill each other. The story ends with some other people walking past the cornfield and hearing someone call for help, and the cycle begins again.
My initial thought was Children of the Corn as well but I don't remember any reference to a dog. Any idea what the period of the piece was? The structure of the story and the loop does scream Stephen King so I wonder if it's another of his short stories (though it's maybe too similar to CotC).
