Tobe Hooper United States, 1979

Palmat's rating of the film Salem's Lot

Enjoyable vampire story with a fine cast and a pretty good story. Some of the subplots does however little to add to the suspense and could have been left on the cutting floor. The film itself is equal parts hokey and silly and atmospheric and eerie. The score by Sukman is however first rate all the way, even when the film stumbles. Good stuff!
