Tobe Hooper takes on vampires from a classic Stephen King-novel
To my opinion this (Tobe Hoopers) version of Salems Lot (1979)is vastly
superior to Mikael Salomons version from 2004. Rutger Hauer for one
thing, as the vampire Kurt Barlow, is no match for Reggie Nalder ! Rob
Lowe for another thing, as the hero, is no match for David Soul, Donald
Sutherland (although a fine actor and probably the best actor in this
television-movie) as the sidecick-villain does not come close to James
Mason... Atmosphere, lighting, timing, shock-effects, acting:
everything is OK but mediocre. At least it never get's boring although
its about 3 hours long ! Still a far cry from Tobe Hoopers
television-version from 1979 which was probably the most successfully
executed adaptation of a Stephen King-novel so far (especially for

"Psycho" References In Salem's Lot
SPOILERS for "Salem's Lot" and "Psycho", but if you've seen them both, read
I came upon this show near the end of the story and I was amused by the
director's direct references to Hitchcock's "Psycho":
1. Shots of Bonnie Bedelia climbing the hill to the house match those of
Vera Miles approaching the house in "Psycho."
2. Shots of Ed Flanders climbing the stairs, and being attacked by James
Mason (from a door to Flanders left, with an overhead shot of the attack)
match those of Martin Balsam climbing the stairs and getting attacked in
3. When David Soul tries to kill the vampire in the cellar coffin, a
close-up of Soul's hand bumping an overhead lamp in the dark -- and that
lamp casting light/dark/light/dark on the characters -- is a match for the
fruit cellar climax in "Psycho."
Homage or rip-off?
