NEW SALEM PICS EXHUMED
The folks at TNT have sent the Creature Corner a trio of stills from the upcoming Salem's Lot four hour mini-series.
This retelling of Stephen King's vampire-ridden novel showcases an ensemble cast, most notably Rob Lowe as Ben Mears, Samantha Mathis as Susan Norton, James Cromwell, Dan Byrd, Andre Braugher, Donald Sutherland, and Rutger Hauer. Tobe Hooper directed the original film back in '79 utilizing scribe Paul Monash's adaptation. The Craft's Peter Filardi has penned this update with knockout cinematographer Mikael Salomon (The Abyss, Far and Away, Arachnophobia) at the helm. Salomon's directing resume reflects plenty of television work including titles like Band of Brothers and Alias.
Salem's Lot will air in early June over the course of two nights. Good word-of-mouth is generating on this one and the trailer witnessed shows lots of promise. We'll have more pics and coverage as we draw closer to its broadcast.
