Watched this again a few nights ago. It really is a slow burner.

Not as good as I'd remembered as a kid.
I think it holds up pretty well because the characters are so good. I just wish some day we could get a complete cut and not the edited version that's been released since the laserdisc days.

Note
Jcard has wrong Aspect ratio listed as 16x9 1.85.1 on this steelbook and previous UK steelbook from 2017

Salem's Lot 1979 is 4.3 (1.33) which is how it was broadcast in 1979 (The Blu-ray the video has black bars each side of video and is correct to show in 1.33)

Warner made the mistake of listing Salem's Lot 2004 TV series aspect ratio 16x9 1.85.1 on both UK steelbooks Jcards

There was a remake!. Why?
Why not

The 2004 tv mini series remake was actually good adaptation of Stephen King's Novel
It got a Primetime Emmy nomination.

It's different to 1979 adaptation of the novel.

I'm surprised you not seen it
Has the following actors in it
Rob Lowe
Donald Sutherland
Rutger Hauer
James Cromwell
And some other very good actors

Has only had a DVD release
I would actually like to see it get a Blu-ray release if possible

You are aware there is a new Salem's Lot big screen cinema adaptation been planned soon and will be produced by James Wan and Gary Dauberman

Didn't know that. I think the 79 version is pretty much perfect and some of the scariest scenes I have ever seen for a TV movie. Casting was pretty much spot on.
