You know what?….I predicted some time ago that the wave of new Stephen King adaptations would include Salem’s Lot. King’s novel was memorably adapted for TV in 1979 [I belong to that generation which was scared shitless by that boy at the window!], and then not so memorably adapted in 2008. And now it’s getting a movie version from New Line, to be produced and written by current horror hard hitters James Wan and Gary Dauberman respectively, though we don’t know who will be directing yet.
I guess there is room for another version, one without network TV censorship, but let’s hope they try a bit harder than they did with the new Pet Sematary…..
