Salem’s Lot (1979)

Just one of my favourite horror films (well miniseries really). It absolutely terrified me when I was young and, if I was being truthful, still gives me the willies when I climb a dark staircase to bed. The first appearance of Barlow, transporting the coffin in the van and, of course, Danny Glick at the window. Terrific and, I think, the best Stephen King adaptation.

The only vampire film to beat this would be the adaptation of Robert McCammon's They Thirst and they haven't made that one yet!
