movie: The Lords of Salem


Description from IMDB: “Heidi, a radio DJ, is sent a box containing a record — a “gift from the Lords.” The sounds within the grooves trigger flashbacks of her town’s violent past. Is Heidi going mad, or are the Lords back to take revenge on Salem, Massachusetts?”

Wow, this movie was disappointing. Husband and I liked other Rob Zombie movies. We have House of 1000 Corpses and Devils Rejects.

This was not the same thing. It came off very dry. It was boring as heck. Even Sheri Moon seemed bored throughout. Imagery was weird but not cool weird. There was a lot of creepy hallway, a la The Shining but crappier. I don’t know if Rob Zombie was trying to be artsy or what. His attempt failed miserably.

Skip this one. Seriously. I wish I had. The Lords of Salem gets an F-.

  1. I remember seeing the trailer for this in theaters and saying, “You know, that premise looks really interesting, but I have a bad feeling about the execution this movie is gonna bring.”
