Audience Reviews for Salem's Lot

A small town in New England is visited by slow dawning horror just as some new people move in: could there be a connection? This handles that slow burn pretty well although the ending could have used a little more pepper. The stars do enough, but Sutherland is exemplary conveying "I'm gonna get you!" menace played nonchalantly. Wish there was more of him in this.

I love the 1979 original it was so scary for a TV miniseries and i was only 10 when first saw it.So going into this 2004 remake or re image what ever you call it i was abit unsure about it.Well what a surprise it was excellent.The story is abit more flush out and a few more players to the mix.Rob Lowe was very good in the David soul part. Wouldn't say its as scary as the 1979 version but there is a few nice jumps along the way.Only real disappointment was that they used Rutgers hauer as the main vampire Barlow who was not really that scary as the 1979 version of Barlow. Don't be afraid of the 3 hrs. running time as it seem to pass quite quickly.
