Movies Watched in November 2015

I only watched two non-film noir movies in November, so if you’re not interested in noir, this will be a really short read.

Salem’s Lot (TV miniseries 1979) Tobe Hooper

What can I say? I’m an old guy who couldn’t stay up long enough finish this film before midnight on Halloween, so it rolled over into November. I have avoided this film for… well, 36 years, mainly because I typically don’t like made-for-TV movies, but I’m glad I checked this one out. I thought I would be more horrified by David Soul’s hair style (and it is horrifying), but the film itself has plenty of creepy stuff going on. Definitely worth a look at any time of year.

3.5/5

You can read my thoughts on the film – and about hearing Keir Dullea speak at the screening – here.
