This year is shaping up to have great run of King adaptations – It, Gerald’s Game, erm… The Dark Tower…
Anyway, on December 11th Zavvi are releasing a new steelbook release of Salem’s Lot, from Texas Chainsaw director Tobe Hooper.
Pre-orders will be live around 6pm UK time on Monday November 27th, so ignore the ‘sold out’ button until then.
With Salem’s Lot, a blood-curdling shocker based on the novel by Stephen King, director Tobe Hooper (Poltergeist) sends the time-honored vampire legend soaring on bat wings into the modern era.
Sinister events bring together a writer (David Soul) fascinated with an old hilltop house, a suave antiques dealer (James Mason) whose expertise goes beyond bric-a-brac and the dealer’s mysterious, pale-skinned “partner” (Reggie Nalder). The solid supporting cast of vampire victims and fighters includes Bonnie Bedelia, Lew Ayres, Elsiha Cook, Ed Flanders, George Dzundza, Lance Kerwin, Geoffrey Lewis and Marie Windsor. It’s hard to keep the undead down. And so easy to be scared in Salem’s Lot.
