It Came From The Tube: Salem’S Lot (1979)

14 August 2016 11:09 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Stephen King adaptations are very hard to pull off successfully. For every Misery, there’s a Graveyard Shift; Carrie soars while Cujo stalls. The small screen has had it just as bad—the elephantine The Stand benefits from its four-night rollout, while no amount of time could save The Tommyknockers.

With The Stand shelved for the time being, McConaughey took the antagonist role, opposite Idris Elba’s heroic Roland Deschain, whose plan to topple the titular tower, thus collapsing the entire multiverse of different realities, takes him from his home in Mid-World to our reality and right to the door step of Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor), whose ability to ‘shine’ is exactly what Walter needs. And we all know what book and movie we’ve seen that power in before, »
