Our Fearless Blogger is back today with a review on the classic horror flick, Salem's Lot! I'll admit I'm not the biggest Stephen King fan, but I can recognize talent when I read it (and see it). Many of his books have been turned into films in which both book and film become legendary. After reading Danielle's review on Salem's Lot, it's definitely on my watch (and read) list.
Like the fact that most of the killing scenes are cut short per 1970's TV censors. It doesn't matter though. Not all good horror films have to be gory to be scary.
Now, you may ask me if the mini-series is worth watching and I can only answer yes. The extra scenes help to build the overall suspense.
Tobe Hooper, who is best known for directing the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974).
Each time I watch the movie, I am left with one thing- [Spoiler Alert: Highlight with mouse to see] At the end of the movie, there is nothing left of the head vampire but his fangs. And, I've always wanted those teeth. :)
Rating: A+ (Even though there is that weird make-up thing. Totally kick-ass movie.)"
How do you prefer your vampire? Horrific? Lost Boy, bad boy? Shiny and sparkly? ;)
