Welcome to Jerusalem's Lot - Salem s Lot, as locals call it. Population: 1319. And growing eerier by the moment. Because an ominous outsider has moved into the sleepy New England towns foreboding Marsten House and brought with him an unspeakable horror. This powerful new adaptation of Stephen Kings terrifying bestseller stars Rob Lowe as a writer who returns to his hometown to confront his haunted past... and who soon leads the fight against a heart stopping force of evil.
A decent remake of a 70's classic

Based on Stephen King's classic vampire novel, 'Salems Lot' is an impressive 'TV mini-series' remake of the 1979 Tobe Hooper original. Rob Lowe plays Ben Mears, a successful writer who returns to his childhood home to write a new book, only to find strange happenings. This new incarnation of 'Salems Lot' is a darker more intense version of its 70's predecessor, and is also far more loyal to King's original novel, and the last twenty minutes are as gripping as any good Stephen King adaptation.
