"Salem's Lot" feels more like something from the world of Scooby-Doo than the mind of Stephen King. The acting is caricatury , the atmosphere is stale, and the 3-hour runtime leaves so many dull spots that you'll just want to skip ahead to the good parts. But there's not very many of those I'm afraid.

Salem’s Lot freaked me out as a kid. When I watched this, I was home alone on Halloween night with all the lights off. Now that's how you should spend your Halloween night. However, Salem’s Lot dose have it's slow moments that kinda dragged the run time for me, but it's still a pretty effective and horrifying TV movie that still gets to me today.

One of the better Stephen King adaptations. It's a made-for-t.v. movie that is actually legitimately scary.
