No thank you. I love Stephen King books & although I already knew that no one on earth could ever successfully adapt his beautiful creations on the screen -they're just too good to adapt on the screen, better played out in one's imaginations- this was a let down. For the older filmed edition of Salem's Lot was far better -kept to the book rather than killed off 2 characters who didn't die- & far creepier! stick to the oldies this version is just moldy!

The 2004 version of 'Salem's Lot was loaded with entertainment and satisfying to horror mavens everywhere, especially this one. Now I will admit that there were a few things that I did not enjoy about the current adaption. One was the fact that the characters did not have a chance to fully develop had Stephen King been allowed to make this his adaption of his own book. I think that a good three to four nights may have been a stretch but exactly what this miniseries would have needed. And there were a great many continuity gripes that I think should have been addressed. Nevertheless, this was truly a film that held its share of scares and chilling and disturbing moments. I think one of the most memorable scenes would be when the character of Danny Glick is visited by his brother, Ralphie. I don't want to give anymore away than that, but this scene kept me up the first time I saw it when it aired on TNT. As Always, there are good performances that can be mentioned, the actors seemed into their parts, notably there are,Rob Lowe as a somewhat moody,slightly arrogant and haunted Ben Mears, Andre Braur as Matt Burke was a great performer as always, and there are Donald Sutherland as the evil Straker and Rutger Haur as Mr.Barlowe. The movie was both moody and filled with some humor, the vampiric,dancing Mrs.Glick comes to mind, for example. And the tragically romantic subplot of Eva and Weasal is also a nice touch. Clearly, there is a great deal of respect payed to Stephen King's work as is seen throughout various scenes in the miniseries, although I think that it was too intentional in some places,though. Otherwise, this was a very nice work and I would like to call attention to the beginning of the movie's chilling and haunting theme music which also is frightning yet you will find yourself drawn to it at the same time. This is really a fun romp that I think any fan of horror will find worth the time really popping some corn, grabbing a crucifix, and settling in with all the lights on and watching. And most importantly, if you hear anyone calling your name, don't answer back and don't open the window and invite them in.

This is the 2004 mini-series remake of Salem's Lot. The first mini-series aired on TV in 1979. Salem's Lot is one of my favorite Stephen King books and this newer mini-series is okay and I liked the good acting by Rob Lowe as Ben Mears, James Cromwell as Father Callahan, Donald Sutherland as Straker and Rutger Hauer as Barlow but I was disappointed in this version. It's not that faithful to the book and though I don't always require a movie to be 100% faithful to the book I felt that some of the changes were ridiculous and I hate that they killed off two main characters who didn't die in the book and I especially hated what they did with Father Callahan. The movie has some good scenes though and is worth watching once or twice and the DVD is probably worth buying if yo like to collect Stephen King books and the movie versions.

I remember when I first saw SALEM'S LOT. It was scarey at first, but as I keeped on watching it, it seemed less scary. My mom saw the original one and couldn't sleep for2 weeks, but I was fine when I saw this remake of it . That's why I give it five stars!!

I'm a HUGE fan of Stephen King, but when I heard that there was going to be a movie based on one of his books, I was horrified! I knew this was going to be just another cheesy movie based on a good book. But when a friend convinced me to go see it in theater's with her, I agreed and watched it. It was waaaaaaaay better than expected. I love horror flicks, and haven't seen a good one since The Exorcist. This version was good, but I prefer the original, which I just bought.
