Author Ben Mears (Rob Lowe) returns to Jerusalem's Lot to write a book about a house, known as Marsten Mansion, that has haunted him since childhood. It is currently being occupied by antique dealer, Richard Straker (Donald Sutherland) and his mysterious business partner, Kurt Barlow (Rutger Hauer). As the town’s inhabitants one-by-one begin to die and return as vampires, Mears convinces a small group of believers, to combat the undead. The cast includes Samantha Mathis as Susan Norton, James Cromwell as Father Donald Callahan and Dan Byrd as Mark Petrie/Daniel Byrd. This remake of the 1979 TV series takes a different perspective in the telling of the story.
