‘The Vampires of Salem’ Adaptation Will Be Chilling and Faithful to Stephen King’s Book, Says Actor

Published

on

In an interview with ComicBook, Lewis Pullman (‘The Strangers: The Night Hunt’) revealed details about the new adaptation of ‘The Vampires of Salem’, saying the film will be “very faithful” to Stephen King’s book.

“Gary Dauberman, the director, really wanted to do the book justice. Previous adaptations have been split into two parts because the book is very dense and there are too many characters, so Gary had to condense some parts but at the same time stay true to the book – including much of the source material’s dialogue. He’s a huge Stephen King fan and I didn’t want to let him down.”

He adds: “I think the adaptation is in good hands. Gary is very smart and has a good take on this story. It doesn’t rely on jump scares, but rather something more conceptual and visual, rather than investing in quick alerts that are easily forgotten. It creates disturbing scenes that will stay in your mind until bedtime, and you won’t be able to forget them.”

Remember that initially scheduled for September 2022, the new adaptation has been postponed indefinitely. Production had been delayed seven months to April 2023, but has now been REMOVED from Warner Bros.’ release schedule.

New information about the Terror Release is expected to be released soon.

Have fun watching:

Previously, the first teaser for the adaptation aired at CinemaCon. Check out the full description below (via SlashFilm):

“A group of people are walking through a foggy area, looking for something – or someone. “Don’t you think there’s a chance he’s out there somewhere?” asks a woman. “Not if history tells us anything,” replies Matt Burke (Bill Camp).

As the group realizes the town has become the target of more than one mysterious disappearance, the camera cuts to a man digging a grave in the dark. Shortly after, we see scenes from Jerusalem’s Lot, a city in Maine. A young child with glasses walks in the middle of the street, covered in blood. A resident is attacked from behind by a silhouette. And finally, we see the vampires.

We see a vampire on fire, a vampire facing a priest, a vampire hiding in a dark space like a closet, glimpses of Matt and the child. The most indelible sequence is the terrifying appearance of several vampires across a panoramic frame. The camera focuses on a man running down the street, alone; soon after, she steps aside when someone calls her. When he returns, a swarm of vampires appears.

Despite having been adapted twice before, this will be the first time King’s story hits the big screen.

Gary Dauberman (“Annabelle 3: Homecoming”) will direct and write. James Wan (“The Conjuring”) will produce.

The cast will include Lewis Pullman, Makenzie Leigh, Alfre Woodard, Bill Camp, John Benjamin Hickey, Nicholas Crovetti, Jordan Preston Carter, William Sadler, Spencer Treat Clark, Cade Woodward, Debra Christofferson and Pilou Asbaek.

“Haunted by an incident from his childhood, author Ben Mears returns to his hometown of Jerusalem’s Lot to seek inspiration for his next book, only to discover that the town has fallen prey to a bloodthirsty vampire.”

The work was first adapted in 1979, directed by Tobe Hooper (“The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”). Decades later, in 2004, it got a new adaptation as a direct-to-TV miniseries.
