A man meets up with his son after a long absence, so they decide to take a trip together. It turns out that he has a legacy at Salem and makes his way there.
Oh the nightlife is lovely, but not much goes on in the day....
If you ever see this movie, please bear in mind that it has nothing whatsoever to do with the original King TV movie. That was suspenseful, well acted, and most importantly, scary.
This is similar in name only, and if you watch it as a comedy, rather than the spine chilling horror it never is, you will have a ball.
Moriarty is a lot of fun in his role, but he just plays concerned parent, followed by a man who shouts at old people for no good reason, and then someone who teams up with the oldest action hero ever, to take down the worlds oldest vampire, and their leader who gets so angry, he has to put on a silly mask.
But he stays there because he doesn't want his son to turn. After all, they have a great relationship, and his son isn't someone you'd like to leave in the middle of the road because he's obnoxious and acts like a total moron.
Tara Reid shows up every now and again, but gets so fed up With everything, decides to get in a coffin which is on fire. And she does it so slowly and so graceful. Literally.
If you want ninety minutes of really bad acting, and just a load of unintentional laughs, this will suffice.
If you want terror and genuine chills, see the original.
