decent flick WARNING!!!!!! SPOILERS!!!!!!!
decent flick is engaging at times but at times it loses you and becomes
talky and dull but it has lots of creepy atmosphere and a creepy moment when
the boy knocks on the window it is a bit long in the tooth and uneven to say
the least though the acting is very good David Soul is really good here he
impressed me quite a bit with his approach he was great especially in the
finale i can't say enough about James Mason's performance he is wonderful
here quite evil and really likable Lance Kerwin is good as Mark surprisingly
non annoying too Bonnie Bedelia is okay here pretty but nothing else Lew
Ayres is here for a bit nothing special the vampire is creepy looking too
overall worth the watch **1/2 out of 5.

A masterful horror epic!
Fantastically creepy mini-series adaptation of Stephen King's classic
vampire novel is simply one of the best made for TV horror movies ever!
Writer returns to his New England hometown to discover that the local
haunted house is now occupied by a mysterious antique dealer and that
the locals are falling victim to vampirism!
This wonderfully made mini-series is a film that I owe much to. Not
only did this film make me a big fan of author Stephen King, but a fan
of horror films period!
Story-wise this adaptation differs from King's novel in some ways, but
it still comes off as an engulfing and down right scary tale. Director
Tobe Hooper (who made the great Texas Chainsaw Massacre in 1974) proves
that his talent for creating good horror is not just limited to the big
screen. As always Hooper sets up a great atmosphere of darkness and
dread that makes this movie captivating. There's scenes of terrific
suspense and plenty of hair-raising chills to be found here. High kudos
must be given to the makeup department on this film. The vampires in
this film are simply frightening thanks to the eerily good makeup work.
I have yet to see a vampire film where the blood-suckers are more
disturbingly spooky than in this film. Some sequences are just
unforgettable - the 'night visitors' tapping at the bedroom windows, an
undead Geffory Lewis coaxing his former teacher to look at him, the
horrifying attack on the Petrie household, and the taught
claustrophobic cellar climax. Special mention should also go to
composer Harry Sukman for his powerful music score.
The cast is another strong hold for this film. David Soul does a good
performance as the writer returning home to face evil. The late-great
James Mason does an astonishing turn as the sinister stranger in town.
Lance Kerwin is strong as a young teen, Bonnie Bedelia is charming as
Soul's love interest, Lew Ayres is confident as an old school teacher,
and Reggie Nalder makes for one terrifying vampire!
An excellent and underrated classic through and through, Salem's Lot is
a film not to be missed by true fans of the genre! Beware of edited
versions of the film though, the full-length mini-series is the best
way to see this one!
Followed by a loose sequel in 1987 and a mini-series remake in 2004.
**** out of ****.
