Can anyone please help with a vampire movie I been trying to remember for years. I used to stay up late watching movies on tv with my parents late at night. A vampire movie I watched years ago but only remember bits of it. I think it was a 70 or 80's film, maybe usa and it was in color.

Theres are scenes I remember the rest of the film been a long time.

A man walking near police car window down, The man takes a 6 bullet gun from the police mans car.

A priest or old man sees his room all dark and someone setting in his rocking chair a male vampire. His eyes glowed red and started mucking the priest while getting out of the chair slowly and ready to acttack the priest or old man. The vampire goes out the window because the priest or old man old a cross around his neck.

A boy 14 or 15 with a large stick in his hand seen running from his house to a creepy old house at night by his girlfriend. She goes to see what hes doing they bump into each other then grabbed by a tall guy in dark clothes.

The guy how take the gun from police car goes to this creepy out house finds the boy, the girlfriend no were to been find. They are near some stairs the tall guy with a large object in his hand about to attack and kill them. The guy with gun shoots the tall man 5 or 6 times wouldn't go down easily, fulls down the stairs and dies.

They go up to the attic break the padlock and three vampires in dark sleeping. The tall guy they killed was the vampires day time protector. They both think how to kill the vampires, they walk up eyes glowing red creeping slowly and quietly to attack. The boy turns around slams door closed drives a large nail to the door to lock them in to stop them from killing them while the guy and The boy still think what to do about the vampies.

If anyone knows this films name or a vampire film that sound alot like it or any other vampire film similar to this.

Please take your time and Thank you for reading this post for helping me.

Salems Lot

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079844/?ref_=sr_1


I haven't seen it for years, but the vampire in a rocking chair bit definitely was in this film, and a couple of the other bits you mention are familar as well - although the iconic scene that everybody seems to remember is the vampire floating outside and tapping on the window.

Yep , Salem's Lot.

Anyone around at the time who watched it as a kid will never forget Ralphie Glick scratching at the window and then coming in.

Scarey stuff!

My favourite horror mini series I'm afraid I did not think that much of the remake.

If only they'd release it in its entirety on blu ray.

I've never even seen the uncut mini series since it was on TV. Now all you get is a weird TV movie with loads cut out.

One of my favorite childhood horror movies/TV.

I would have been 9/10 when this first broadcast, scared the beejebus out of me. Still love it today. David Soul is perfectly cast and gives a very underrated performance, and anything with the wonderful Geoffrey Lewis in it is always worth a punt.

I'm not sure Karis but I think this DVD is the uncut version.]

Awesome. You are absolutely correct. 184 minutes. Awesome!

Edit: I hear a Salem's Lot blu ray is on the cards, but it could be like The Abyss and a total pipe dream!

Edit Edit: Salem's Lot terrified me. Strangely, the bit I found most terrifying as a kid was right at the end when the kid is leaning against the wall in the basement and all the vampires are crawling toward him from the next room!

A Blu Ray cant come soon enough if you ask me, one of the few things left I want to see get the spit and polish treatment.
I've never seen any firm info about a release though.

Watch it again. Those actors are REALLY into their roles. And their expressions are what makes it (for me) so terrifying!

And, sadly, I don't think there's been any official mention, even a whisper, of a blu ray

When this was shown as a two-parter in 1980?.I watched the first part with my younger brother who was pretty scared, after he went to bed I went outside and tapped a broom on his bedroom window.:
I think I was grounded for the decade,

So many scary/creepy moments in this film. Again, it's another one of those films I refuse to watch on my own.

My cousin was about 14 when he watched it and sat right in front of the TV constantly saying it wasn't scary...then the boss vampire appeared. I've never seen anyone jump so high from a seated position in my life

Indeed! Great book and as a kid seeing Ralphie Glick scratching at the window was utterly terrifying.

Hi can you tell me if the full version DVD is split into 2 x 90 minute parts like the original mini series.And if so does the end of the first part have a cliffhanger/clear end point.

I ask because I'm thinking of watching it over 2 nights and don't want to just stop watching a 180min film half way through if there's no clear 'stop point'.

Thanks
