Behind The Scenes: Salem’s Lot (1979)

With our own Patrik J. Doody’s excellent Salem’s Lot Post earlier today it seemed only right to share these two behind the scenes photos of that excellent Tobe Hooper directed miniseries. I’m going to have to take up Patrick’s challenge tonight and not only watch the scene with Mike Ryerson (Geoffrey Lewis) waiting for his teacher, Jason Burke (Lew Ayres), in his bedroom before I go to bed but the whole movie…in the dark…possibly with the covers over my head.

Of course a huge thanks goes to Quint for the two photos above at Ain’t It Cool News for his continuing Behind the Scenes features, he really does give us movie fans an excellent post to look forward to everyday!

Watch Invaders from Mars (1986) Online

Invaders from Mars was a 1986 science fiction film directed by Tobe Hooper. It is a remake of the 1953 science fiction film of the same name. Thanks to the miracle of the internet, the entire movie is online for our viewing enjoyment.

Wow, that was fast, they took down the video and canceled the account already. The whole movie had been uploaded, so I thought this might have been an approved upload in some way. Apologies and if I spot the video again, I will insert it back up here.
