Sorry - I MUST disagree with the review of June 2002 - the full length version is infinitely better than the shorter one - where a lot of continuity is lost.
THE best horror movie - no swearing or gore - very atmospheric . It's what you don't see that scares you - no stereotypical Bavarian 19th Century Burgomasters in this one!
This one is modern - it could happen to you - beware of your new neighbours - and anything being thrown through your kitchen window !!!!
Forget Christopher Lee - this vampire is Nosferatu-like, and THE scariest thing I have ever seen - amazing make-up !!
James Mason at his sinister best, and the best movie I have seen the very underrated David Soul, in.
I am still waiting in vain for this to come out in DVD format - my VHS tape is looking rather worn......

I was fortunate enough to see the full length feature version of Salem's Lot on TV back in 1981. I was utterly enthralled by the film and thought it was an absolutely brilliant and terrifying adaptation of Stephen King's book.
I bought the video, but unfortunately it was the "cut" version and I have watched it many times since. The result being, that over the years I had forgotten how the original version went and so I decided to go on a pilgrimage and buy and watch the Full Length Version again.
For the second time in my life I was completely blown away by it! OK! Yes it is looking a little dated now and is obviously not as terrifying as it was 26 years ago, but some of the scenes that were cut from the original were pure gems, especially with regard to the films continuity.
The one scene that I think should never have been removed at all was the first visit by Ralphie to his brother Danny.
This scene made such an impact, because of the strange mixture of feelings it stirred up in me. Beginning with deep sadness and a strong sense of loss at the fact that this little boy was now a vampire and to complete and utter horror when you realised that poor old Danny was doomed. This grief for Ralphie's lost innocence was made even more poignant when after the window was opened and he floated into the room, the toy aeroplanes hanging from the ceiling were the first things you noticed.
Prior to 1979, vampires had always been fully consenting adults, and this film turned all preconceived ideologies about vampires completely on its head.
With this first visit, he did not look completely corrupted, as if he wouldn't be fully "evil", until he had tasted blood, and God how I hoped he wouldn't, despite "knowing" that he would.

I remember as a twelve year old watching the concluding part of this original version and it frightened me so much that i actually got into my parents bed (much to my fathers utter disbelief),because i didn't want to be on my own that night.He kicked me out after about five minutes and later that night decided it would be funny to creep into my bedroom in the dark,jump on my bed and hiss like a vampire--bringing me to tears and only stopping when my mother shouted at him to leave me alone.For weeks after i couldn't sit in a room at night without the curtains being drawn together--with no gaps showing.
Such was the impact of this tv movie(although when i later read the book by stephen king,i found if the movie had been adapted better and closer to novel--it would have been brilliant.)
Three key scenes from the book were translated to the screen brilliantly----Danny glicks nocturnal visit to Mark petries bedroom window----Matt burkes confrontation with an undead Mike ryerson in his upstairs bedroom,is also a classic--with an exceptional change in the fact that when burke opens his bedroom door,Ryerson is in a rocking chair as oppossed to lying on the bed as in the novel and last but not least Ben mears and doc nortons vigil with Marjorie glick in the mortuary where she rises to join the undead and is promptly banished with a crucifix.The change to Barlow from a dracula type vampire to a hideous nosferatu like creature was probably a risk when the film was made but it pays off beautifully here,as the scene in the jail were we first see him,still makes me jump.The vampires in this film look so evil,its a pity we dont see more of them.
