Salem's Lot is Finally Coming to Blu-ray!

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced that three of their classic Stephen King catalog titles will be hitting Blu-ray in September, and one of them is Salem's Lot!

We already knew that It was hitting Blu-ray in September, but to find out that we're getting Salem's Lot too is just... well, it brings a metaphorical tear to our eyes. We obviously love the hell out of Salem's Lot around here (it's a great vampire flick, and The Master has been our mascot since day one), so to think that we'll finally be able to watch it in newly remastered 1080p form is just excellent news.

It and Cat's Eye are also cool, but Salem's Lot is just special.

All three of them will be available to buy on September 20th. Get hype.
