Rob Zombie is definitely developing skills visually as a director, but he still hasn't grasped decent storytelling skills yet. The film looks great, beautifully gothic and moody, but it has the lackadaisical pace of a snail that doesn't quite build to a satisfying climax. 'The Lords of Salem' is very evocative of Dario Argento, particularly his 'Mother of Tears', but it's nowhere near as entertaining. Nice try, but fail!

I love Rob Zombie and totally respect his actistic views and what he was trying to do with this movie. Turst me it is very different. It's not going to be one of my favs but it was worth seeing. If you are expecting to be scared that is not what you are going to get. It is kind of disturbing though.

Only the mind of a child could find this film's execution both plausible and frightening. The plot is full of holes, poorly developed and too reliant on shock that really isn't all that shocking by today's movie standards. As for this film's purpose, curiously I cannot reason it. First, because it isn't even mildly entertaining and second, unless the intention was to somehow logo merchandise the film's poster, the result is a complete waste of production money and talent. Skip it. While not offensive to any but sensitive religious types and those who cringe at explicit sexuality, it's just plain dull. Save your money. Likely, you'll be glad you did.

Sorry, but the silliness and the vast number of extremely unattractive nude bodies made me laugh. Not a bad premise, but Polanski did the Devil's offspring and the creepy neighbor things a whole lot better in "Rosemary's Baby". Can't say it was boring, but it certainly wasn't scary.

If you're looking for another House Of 1000 Corpses or Devil's Rejects, don't look here!! LOS was so slow and SO awful, unless you're into a pointless story with old boobs. Lots and lots of old boobs. The best part of seeing this movie was that the guy behind my friend and I was farting. I'm so bummed RZ! And to the guy with gas, thanks for the laughs. You made this a hilarious experience worth talking about.
