Thus, the reason "Salem's Lot" is such a great horror movie is because of the atmosphere and edge-of-your-seat suspense created by the rising action and increasing tension that this movie is brilliantly able to produce.Read more ›
What makes "Salem's Lot" different from many horror 'classics' is that it doesn't have to rely on blood and gore to scare the wits out of the viewer. The eerie tenseness of the presence of Straker, Mears' return to THAT house and the ultimate battle with the elusive Mr.Barker results in a constant shiver down your spine. My favourire scene, though, is one that freaked me out as a kid - when Danny Glick is visited for the first time by his now vampire brother, hovering in a cloud of smoke at his bedroom window. Believe me, you'll be checking behind the curtains of every window in the house for weeks to come, especially if it's a foggy night!!!
Living in Ireland, I bought the UK release of "SALEM'S LOT THE MINI-SERIES" which, I believe, contains a few additional scenes not included in the American 'full- length version.' Everyone should see this mini-series at least once in their life-time....it's something that you will never forget!!!!
In case you didn't know, Salem's Lot is a vampire movie. Not just a vampire movie, one of the very best, and probably the scariest to date. Yes, I know it was made for TV in 1979, but this is truly one of the scariest movies out there, and that's because they chose to make a vampire that actually looks like a vampire. The "Master" in Salem's Lot is a blue version of Count Orlok from "Nosferatu," and that's scary, man! But the horror doesn't stop there. All the lesser vampires are scary too! I'm talking SCARY!Read more ›
The story starts out with novelist Ben Mears (Soul) returning to his hometown, Salem's Lot, with the premise of his writing a book about a creepy old house which was the source for bits of nastiness in the past. The question he ponders is whether or not some places are magnets for evil, that evil can be a sort of tangible force that can infect a structure. He attempts to rent the house, which has been vacant for 25 years, but finds it has already been bought by a man named Straker (Mason). The exterior of the house did appear formidable, menacing and I think Soul did a good job conveying his own sense of fear whenever he observed the house, and later on when he actually entered the house. Seems Straker and his unseen partner, Kurt Barlow, purchased the house and intend on opening an antique store in the town.Read more ›
