That just gave me the shivers.
That scene near the end, in the cellar, when you see Barlow's mindless undead minions creeping up behind them as they're opening the coffin...brrrr...
Good stuff, classic creepy. And James Mason, a class act as always.
Anybody seen that obscure Return to Salems Lot flick? Never saw it myself, but heard it was a direct-to-video cheapie that had little to do with the original mini-series.
If I saw it, I forgot it just as fast. Looks pretty cheesy
Yep. Sitting in the rocking chair with red eyes.
That bus scene was awesome scary.
My favorite King novel and the original tv movie is in my top 10 horror films of all time.
I consider the novel to be the gold standard of modern American horror. I'm not exaggerating or going all fan-boy. I really think it's that good.
The TV movie was great as well. Tobe Hooper is a great director when he is on his game. He was on his game for this. Part of his unholy trinity, if you will (TCSM & Poltergeist being the other 2/3 of the equation).
This is one of my fave Stephen King movies....it has everything....vampires, haunted house, eerie music....the scenes of the guy in the chair with the vampires eyes saying "teacher" is so scary and the boy knocking on the window gave me the shivers....another is the head vampire Barlow....man he is hideous...real old type vampire from the Hammer movies...in the cellar of the house were there is lots of vampires crawling after Mark is so cool....this film was scary as hell when I watched it when I was young...still stands the test of time...
Even better than Here Come the Brides?
Hard to believe.
Holy cow! Spin me back down the years.... I had such a crush on Bobby Sherman!
But I swore I'd live in Seattle because of that show. And I do (well, in the area)
You know what's funny about that?
Mostly what I remember about that show is that song about the bluest skies you've ever seen.
I had completely forgotten that David Soul had even been on that show, but I was flipping channels one day and there he was.
And Bobby Sherman . . . King of Tiger Beat.
Were we ever really that young?
Ah.... I suppose we were. What I wouldn't give to be there again.
That song, BTW, is the city's unofficial theme song.
This was the first SK related movie that I remember seeing. I was 7 in '79 and didn't know who SK was. I know this scared the hell out of me. The latest version was nowhere near as good.
Big fan, I'm watching this one later today, especially if this storm keeps up. How about those Aurora models in Mark's room? Ooooooo, gooood stuff...
I read the book and honestly had no idea that they made a movie. Cheesy or not I'll still watch it.
Jesus, to this day that scene still gives me the chills and I will not watch it at night.
Return was Tres cheesey! Saw it on cable way back in the day.
