Not A Sexy Vampire's rating of the film Salem's Lot

A three hour horror film that doesn't feel anywhere near that long and is a genuinely fun, unnerving experience? So here for that. Really loved Mason, the very sensitive Kerwin and the memorable Nosferatu-aping vampire. His jailhouse entrance where he makes a strange cheeping barking sound is bonkers yet utterly unnerving. Also, floating vampire children and a Hermann-inspired score! A whale of a time.
