Evil is spreading through the quiet little town of Salem’s Lot. Ben Mears, a young writer drawn back to his birthplace by the forbidding old house that perches on the hill, is thrust into a hellish battle for survival and sanity when a vampire and his servant make Salem’s Lot their new home… One of the all-time great TV mini series, Salem’s Lot scared the pants off British audiences when it was broadcast in 1979.
