Good Movie

Discussion in ''Salem's Lot (Remake)' started by MaddenSudeikis, Jul 21, 2014.

  1. I watched it when it premiered 10 years ago and like it. It followed book more than original mini-series which I appreciated. I really wish they would do a theatrical version of the book.

    Agreed on doing a movie-version; as long as it's a serious/honest attempt at the material..
    That said, I recently bought the new/updated mini-series with Rob Lowe in the lead and thought it was better than the original attempt. Of course, the original still has its' place in my heart as well.

    I thought it was terrible. Nothing was the same as the book. Why change everything like that? The book was perfect, one of King's best; why change nearly every single aspect of it and then call it by the title?

    I picked this up for 3 bucks at a local record shop today. I was excited when I saw the comments that it followed the book closely, but then a little nervous when I saw a comment that says it didn't. Guess I'll have to watch it myself and see.
