  • Salem's Lot 2004

    ★★★★ Added

    The original Salems Lot miniseries is a classic and it is better, especially effects wise, but this remake does a lot of stuff right. Watching this time I did notice how some of the effects look downright silly. This has some creepy scenes, but the scenes from the original are the stuff of nightmares so most of these don't compare.
