Salem's Lot Reviews:

As it really is a unbelievable and suspenseful vampire tale! Stephen Lord - not normally my favourite horror writer - has created one of the absolute BEST modern vampire tales in this story, and this mini-series translation is absolutely real to the feel of his tale! Instead of splatterfest results , this present hinges itself on a high-tension spiderweb of plotlines and sets up the vampire more as a behind-the-scenes controlling evil. The terror here is not in seeing the monster, it is in NOT seeing him and knowing that he and his minions are out there, somewhere, plotting and planning with the heros stumbling blindly after them like toddlers in the dark. Give this present a chance! It may just scare you!


Tobe Hooper's SALEM'S LOT is an engrossing, riveting tale of suspense. The atmosphere makes this film. There is a foreboding creepiness that sucks you into Salem's Lot long before the real horror begins.David Soul manages to become a vampire slayer in the tightest jeans imaginable. Even faulty jeep doors and vengeful plumbers can't keep him back from probing into the secrets of the old, suspicious Fresh England city of Jerusalem's Lot. What compels him is as fascinating as what he uncovers. The townsfolk range from a shapely boarding house owner to a deliciously smarmy true estate agent to a truly moving school teacher looking for a method out of nowhere. SALEM'S LOT makes you feel you are among friends, sadly, a community of doomed ones. Mood is everything. If you allow it, SALEM'S LOT will receive under your skin and seep into your nightmares. There are moments of real horror: the floating Glick brother window knockers, the caretaker in the creaky rocking chair, Marjorie Glick rising from the dead, the vampires vying for Mark's tender neck. Just a several nice scenes in a chilling, memorable film.SALEM'S LOT is the excellent complement to a sleepy, rainy afternoon at home alone. By nightfall, dare to leave a window ajar as the fog rolls in and the undead fatefully rise to quench their thirst.


I first saw "Salems Lot" when I was only 10, and 20 years soon I still have the random nightmare because of it. "Salems Lot"- the book- was an perfect tale of a tiny - city being slowly killed - off by vampires, but the 1979 T.V. film took the storyline to a entire fresh level. Tobe Hooper stayed real to the nightmarish Stephen Lord novel when he directed this film for television. The film is so scary (and holds - up today), because of nice cast and truly terrifying scenes of goulish vampires. The actors who made up the tiny - city cast, looked like your daily working - class folks that you might bump into at your local supermarket. That element of quiet tiny - city folk mixed with the absolute horror / evil of the Stryker hero (played by an unnervingly cold James Mason) and Mr. Barlow -- one of the most hideous / terrifying vampires since "Nosferatu"-- create "Salems Lot" one of the greatest horror films that I've ever seen. I give it 10 out of 10 stars!!!!!!!!!
