My friends, this is one of the greatest vampire movies of all time. It is one of the greatest Stephen King films. It is also one of the greatest made for TV movies. Not because of phenomenal effects (though they’re pretty solid and simple), but because of acting, writing, and story. It’s the perfect horror film.

Make no mistake, it’s pretty 70s as far as movies go, which isn’t a bad thing. It suits the Stephen King setting quite well (small Maine-esque town, quaint locals, stranger rolling in a la Something Wicked This Way Comes, and the gradual corruption/death of everyone he encounters). What’s more, who doesn’t love a good old-fashioned Nosferatu? I know I sure do! Do yourself a favor if you haven’t watched Salem’s Lot yet–which I can’t even begin to understand–you won’t regret it.
