I can kind of see why they'd reduce the playtime for broadcast but why the heck would they do it for the VHS release?  I guess it shouldn't surprise me the way big studios misread what the fans want.
While I'm partial to The Night Stalker and The Night Strangler, because I like the character of Kolchak so much, you can certainly argue that Salem's Lot was the greatest TV horror movie from the board's era.

Thanks for the comment.


  I liked the  Kolchak movies and the  series to a slightly less extent.  I was disappointed  it lasted such a short time.  Looking back the show  was  pushed into the one hour formula  common to t.v. and  lost the feel of the movies.  The lack of  budget  really  becomes apparent  as well which  left  the big 'What If" question. The re-make did not  answer it.
