This movie belongs in the WTF-league ...

"Bleed us a king!"

I must admit that I've actually never heard of Rob Zombie. Not as a musician and certainly not as a film producer. To my surprise, he has an impressive list of things he achieved musically for movies and in directing movies. Even "Haloween" and "Haloween II" were on that list. The list of musical contributions is even more impressive. But remembering names was never my strong point. But "The Lords of Salem" is not exactly a good reference for our dear friend Rob.

However I think this movie had all the right ingredients to become a great movie. Especially the first hour is really enjoyable with the gloomy and sometimes creepy atmosphere. The intro was a little bit of a disappointment, with the old witches dancing naked around...

Zombie: The Lord of Unpleasantly Evil Things

Zombie's directing has never been better than it is here. This is an unpleasantly dark film, filled with strange (often graphic) images, and terrific music that sets the mood oh so perfectly. All of these elements helped draw me into this slow burn and added a gradual feeling of unease. I found it reminiscent in style to 'Rosemary's Baby'. I loved seeing all of the veteran actors doing their best, as well. Things seemed borderline great, until the bridge between Act II and III. Up to that point, the balance between the plot and the scenes of 'evil-doings' was even and made complete sense. It felt like we were building up to an extremely dark payoff. But, sadly, the film lacks a true third act. It descends into a series of utterly strange nonsense. The dark and uneasy feeling I h...

A deeply flawed, but admirable effort.

If I could give a star rating somewhere between 2.5 and 3 out of 4, that's exactly what I'd give Zombie's Lords of Salem. Flawed, but ambitious. Creepy, but not particularly scary. Visually dazzling, if emotionally hollow. Still, Zombie deserves credit for going in a different direction and showing off his eye for wonderful shot compositions, instead of relentless gore and cheap jump scares. Not up there with his best (House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil's Rejects, and Halloween II) but also not as terrible as Halloween. I hope he doesn't drop the horror genre as rumors have been going around, because if he continues in the direction he is going with Lords he could go on to make some horror masterpiece in the vein of Polanski or Argento. Keep on keepin on Rob!
