Question about Salem's Lot (1979) run-time
« on: October 24, 2022, 11:46:00 PM »
This is puzzling me. I've always remembered the original Salem's Lot tv movie running 3 hrs. The IMDB lists this though:


https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079844/technical



3 hr 4 min (184 min) (uncut) (USA)
3 hr 3 min (183 min) (DVD)
3 hr 20 min (200 min) (TV)
1 hr 52 min (112 min) (movie)


How is there a 3 hr, 20 minute version? Moreover, WHERE is it? I've never come across it!

Sounds like the long version is the one with the double credits and the recap.   Let's give a generous 4 minutes for credits... It's hard to imagine a 12 minute recap, though.  But they say it was lengthy.

I think the FYE steelbook has the 3hr twenty minute version. I could be wrong.

Oh hell! I never even checked that part of IMDB. Thanks Mike! That pretty much explains it. I do remember a lengthy recap when I saw it on tv originally. That makes sense. I just wanted to make sure I had the complete movie.

I have the DVD (183m). If all I'm missing is one minute, I can live with that.  :)

I'm not even sure what that one minute could be. Probably credits or something.
