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 »

It just goes to show you cannot return to a horror treasure.
I actually feel embarrassed for Michael Moriarty. He has never had the really good roles he deserves. And he did not deserve this. It is obvious that the studio wanted to exploit the popular "Salem's Lot" without "shoveling" out the cash to do a decent job. This film cannot even in good conscience be called a sequel. There was nothing left of the town at the end of the last film, and suddenly all new characters are coming home to a place that isn't even supposed to exist. I really felt as if my intelligence was being insulted, by this truly poor representation of the subject. If you are renting the film OK, you just wasted a couple of bucks, no big deal. But if you bought it, you've just been bitten big time. This movie deserves an early grave.
