Rob Zombie’s The Lords of Salem looks to bewitch retailers
September 3 is the street date (DVD/Blu-ray) for Rob Zombie’s best movie to date… The Lords of Salem. I’ve slammed him before for his past work, especially Trashoween and Hoboween II. But he got everything right with The Lords of Salem, though most of his detractors would disagree.
I will say this… if The Lords of Salem was released in 1983 and directed by someone else, it would be a cult classic. I guess you cannot please everyone.
From the singular mind of horror maestro Rob Zombie comes a chilling plunge into a nightmare world where evil runs in the blood. The Lords of Salem tells the tale of Heidi (Sheri Moon Zombie), a radio station DJ living in Salem, Massachusetts, who receives a strange wooden box containing a record, a “gift from the Lords.” Heidi listens, and the bizarre sounds within the grooves immediately trigger flashbacks of the town’s violent past. Is Heidi going mad, or are the “Lords of Salem” returning for revenge on modern-day Salem?
