Lowe's performance didn't convince me, making the film ok at best.
I'm sure it'll be deemed blasphemy, but I kind of like this better than the original adaptation. I just like the actors and their interactions with one another better. The drama is just more compelling here, even if the fright factor is pretty scarce. Sure it doesn't have a cool Nosferatu monster, but I was still entertained more this time around.
I could hardly find anything enjoyable in this miniseries. It's corny, it's kitschy, it's got badly written, clichéd dialogue and and the acting and directing feel half-hearted. Nothing worth to be watched (let alone re-watched).
Engaging story, kind of a rushed ending.
Even at three hours, it still plays like a cliff-notes version of the book, and a hollow one at that. Plus, Rob Lowe could not appear more bored to be playing his role. Plus it's missing a good chunk of the creepiness and horror of the Tobe Hooper version.
This movie is all around bad with the exception of one likable character, I could barely get through it. They had a great book for source material and a pretty good previous film adaptation to go off of and they still blew it.
This updated Salem's lot followed the book making the movie an upgrade from the original
Allow me to preface this review by saying that I'm a fan of both the novel and the 1979 David soul version. However... this version takes the story into a march darker more atmospheric place. The story of a man returning home to face his demons and a small town that is seemingly idyllic but holds it's own secrets. Many people I know disliked this version but I found it fascinating, thoroughly enjoyable movie. The acting is superb, the camera work and direction excellent. In all ways a film that earns it's place a one of the best among the vampire genre.
Incredible story! Love it! Good dreadful movie for a night watch
This adaptation is fairly true to the source material and is entertaining enough for a watch.
