On this episode of Daily Dead's official podcast, Heather Wixson discusses Tobe Hooper's 1979 miniseries adaptation of Stephen King's ’Salem's Lot with special guest Jared Rivet (screenwriter of 2017's Jackals, staff writer on 2021's Day of the Dead series and 2019's Are You Afraid of the Dark? revival, producer of 2007's Raw Footage, writer and voice actor on the Earbud Theater audio drama). From its emotional performances and bold direction to its gothic atmosphere and haunting vampire makeup effects, listen as Heather and Jared (who worked with Hooper) revisit the Marsten House, face The Master, and reflect on what still makes Salem's Lot so scary more than 40 years after it first premiered on CBS.
