The Lords of Salem 
A deeply flawed, but admirable effort.
2.5/4 stars

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!
