Joe Weber is an anthropologist who takes his son on a trip to the New England town of Salem's Lot unaware that it is populated by vampires. When the inhabitants reveal their secret, they ask Joe to write a bible for them. Written by

When Joe and Van Meer confront the vampires in the schoolroom near the end, Van Meer shoots Judge Axel twice in the head. He then pretends to shoot himself (around 1:29:00). After the second Axel shot, the slide on his Walther P-38 clearly locks open, indicating an empty chamber and magazine. Yet when he turns away to "shoot" himself seconds later, the pistol appears racked and ready to fire. See more »

This is just so bad. The acting is absolutely appalling. The entire cast sound as if they're reading unfamiliar dialogue from an idiot board. Ricky Addison Reed doesn't appear to have done any other film or TV work before or since, & it's not at all surprising. In fact, a quick check through the database shows that quite a few cast members have only ever appeared in other schlock horror movies by Larry Cohen. The monster special effects are laughable. Just check out the ridiculous "true face" of the head vampire, it's on a par with those cheap & cheesy 50's horror/sci-fi B-Features. The script is an insult to Stephen King. Another reviewer stated that this movie isn't as bad as others have made it out to be. I disagree. It is really, really that bad.
