SALEM'S LOT (1979 United States) Television review

First let me suggest you see the original TV miniseries version if at all possible. The “movie” version(for European theatres) is severely cut. The remaining pieces don’t fit together and leave gaping holes (such as, “what happened to Susan?”) Now you know which dvd to buy, if you were tossing up, lets move on. 471 more words
