User Reviews

Oh my god, how can a film be so bad !!
29 August 2003 | by bobpantsSee all my reviews

This film is awful, bad, bad acting, no plot, just a town of vampires that someone arrives at. I too turned this off after 30 mins and this is the first time I have ever done this.

Even worse it is supposed to be a sequel to the excellent Salem's lot !!
