Inspired by this puzzle where an oppogram was defined as an anagram of opposites

For example:

$\color{blue}{ratify }\space\color{red}{smart}\space\color{green}{peace}\rightarrow\color{blue}{deny}\space\color{red}{slow}\space\color{green}{war} = \color{red}{W}\color{green}{a}\color{blue}{yne}\text{'}\color{red}{s}\space\color{green}{W}\color{red}{o}\color{green}{r}\color{red}{l}\color{blue}{d}$

The following three oppograms are linked by a common author:

  • Order from nothing
  • Wild whole no
  • Received low out

Of what are they oppograms?

    $\begingroup$ @ABcDexter other way around - opposite of each word first, then anagram the group of three words. then each anagrammed thing is connected by a single other thing. $\endgroup$ May 2 '16 at 14:50

Order from nothing:

Wild whole no:

Tame part yes = "Pet Sematary"

Received low out:

Sent high in = "The Shining"
