The Lords of Salem

This is a horror movie written & directed by Rob Zombie but it is different from what you might expect . It is not bloody & gory , as you might think it would be . It's more of a throwback to the old and more subtle type of horror films . It has a cheaper budget and no digital effects . It does have a lot of older actors that film & t.v. buffs will recognize . Sheri plays a radio DJ that works in Salem , Massachusetts . She receives a box with a record by a group called 'The Lords' and when she plays it , it affects all the females in town . They all go into a trance and Sheri has flashbacks to the 1600's and specifically , Meg and her witches coven . Bruce plays the local historian/expert that tries to help Sheri discover exactly what is going on . Jeff plays one of Sheri's co-workers . It's rated "R" for violence , sexual content , language and drug use and has a running time of 1 hour & 41 minutes . It's not one that I would buy on DVD but it would be alright as a rental .

Seriously. I went in not expecting much from this movie and was still so very extremely disappointed! It began good, Sherry Moon did a great job acting, but then all of a sudden it went nowhere! The story line fell apart and you are left sitting there wondering why you spent money on this disaster. It is not scary, nor is it even entertaining! A few people have mentioned the old boobs. That was actually the only thing that scared me! Without the nakedness I would have had nothing to laugh at. Please don't waste your money OR time on this this seriously disappointing film (can I even call it that?). Boo Rob! I used to love Rob Zombie. I keep trying out his movies in the hope of finding redemption in him, but keep getting disappointed. Don't go. Go watch a chick-flick or something.

The Lords of Salem review from a diehard horror fan

Rob Zombie’s latest film is strange, dark, slow, creepy and psychologically disturbing. In other words, it’s pretty much cool as ^^^^. Now – if you are expecting the typical Rob Zombie film of quotable one-liners littered with curse words, lots of blood and a numerous body count then you will end up disappointed. The Lords of Salem is the opposite of what he normally does – it’s a more artistic approach with far less action, but much more artistic and mental horror. It’s the type of film that many may not get, and may even disturb many to the point of disliking it for their own nonacceptance of what is against the norm. But for me, someone who enjoys their words well salted and their art interpretive and cerebral, found this film to be to my liking. Is it an action packed, beginning to end mind-numbing entertainment? No, but in my opinion this film deserves notice as one of the best horror films of the year. [BLOCKED WEBSITE]
