A writer, Ben Mears (David Soul), returns to his small hometown intending to write a book about the ominous old Marston House which has a reputation for being haunted and, he feels, a history of being inherently evil. Soon, Ben suspects the new inhabitants of the house have something to do with the disappearance of a kid and a mysterious plague spreading throughout the town.SALEM’S LOT
Happy Holidays, and welcome to part two of our three-part classic Stephen King extravaganza! Salem’s Lot (1979) was the second adaption of King’s work—also his second book—and is often remembered fondly for nostalgia and iconic imagery sakes. The film is far from perfect, plagued with the limitations (at the time) of the television format, terrible music, and pacing, and the manipulation of a major character. Join us as we discuss why this film is regarded highly despite these issues, as well as director, Tobe Hooper, and the inspired casting of James Mason. Listen, as Johnny Has the Keys goes under the covers, clutching our crucifix tightly at the sound of fingernails scraping our window.
