Definitely The Night Stalker. Love me some Kolchak and always considered his first outing his best.

I know it's from 1982 but i think that Don't Go To Sleep is the scariest of the tv movies!!And probably from all movies!!

I remembered how it creeped me out horribly when I saw it as a kid in a local TV channel. If want to, you can check the full movie here:

It's a rare one that deserves a DVD release.
Very good choice!That movie is one the greatest of the lost gems!That ending creeped me out!They should remade this movie,it could be awesome!

Salem's Lot is awesome - head and shoulders above the rest. That said, I almost voted for Home for The Holidays, simply because it deserves more recognition.

Salem's Lot starts strong but falls hard in the last 60, 90 minutes.

That said, I flat out missed the others.

I have seen a few of them, I voted for Salem's Lot. I own the complete miniseries on DVD.

Actually, 3 hours on DVD... is not that heavy a set or anything. 1 disc. 1 side. + trailer. Hardly the Harry Potter collection or anything.

(Which is why it actually pisses me off that Warner thought it was a good idea to split It up into 2 parts, put them on reverse sides of the disc, AND remove about 3 minutes from the fucking film.)

That is it's original format as televised. I wish that version was available in the USA because that is how I first saw it.

Actually, I wish they'd release a special edition with all three cuts: the original miniseries, the overseas theatrical cut, and the extended DVD cut. The theatrical cut still retains a few shots that didn't make it to the extended.

The Initiation of Sarah, which is my pick for best TV film in general. Hopefully it'll hit Blu-ray one of these days. Runner-up would be Satan's Triangle.

^ Thanks. I've been posting elsewhere, but a friend suggested I come back, so I figured what the hell. It's good seeing you again.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, worst TV film of the 70's would be The Spell. I loathed the characters in that one to the point of hating the movie.

By the way, have you seen Mysterious Two? If not, I highly recommend it. It's on YouTube.

Never seen but I remember this title from video rental days. Didn't really appeal to me back then, but it looks like I might have missed out. Thanks for the recommendation.

Duel got my vote but I will admit to not having seen most of these.
