Salem’s Lot

I can’t get enough of these old vampire movies. These images are from Salem’s Lot, a 1979 miniseries based on a Stephen King novel – whatelse could it be based on but the writings of one of the greatest current master’s of horror. I saw the series this week. David Soul in a starring role. If you are able to ignore the 70’s fashion and terrible haircuts and like a slow paced story, this one is a treat. I had fun with it.

By the way: the bottom shot shows Bonnie Bedelia as Susan Norton, who’s just about to take a bite out of David Soul. Maybe you know her better as Miss McClane from the Die Hard movies. Vampires die hard indeed.
