3.0 out of 5 stars A missed opportunity Sept. 11 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Honestly, I reeeaaaally wanted to like this film... but could'nt. Whenever I got into it something happened to turn me off... Just like the ''Intro to the Radio Show'' segment...Rob did indeed do these kinds of cut-aways in House of 1,000 Corpses, but they were within the tone of the whole movie. In The Lords of Salem, there seems to be too many ''moods and tones'' so it came out as a mess... There is the 'The Shining Mood' obviously inside the apartment complex, the 'Rosemary's Baby Mood' with the witches and the 'I think I can replicate the House of 1,000 Corpses mood' which falls completely flat...

The 'horror visions' were really what killed the mood for me... Whenever phychological tension was built, it was killed off by some weak horror shots. Some of the designs were cool but the way they were presented was so-so at best.


Take the disfigured priest who walks the goat... Creepy from far away, but the jump scare afterward just felt lame

*End of Spoiler*

I did enjoy the slow pace and cinematography of the Salem town and inside the appartment complex.

In the end, I felt this movie was a letdown (not as bad as El Superbeasto though)....

4.0 out of 5 stars Zombie's Best Sept. 8 2013
Rob Zombie has gone from grindhouse to art house with "Lords Of Salem," his most stylish, atmospheric, and terrifying film to date.

Rare is the horror film that actually scares its audience nowadays. Rob Zombie himself has not managed to genuinely scare me with his movies. He's entertained me. He's made me squirm. But he hasn't scared me. Not until now.

Here's Rob Zombie's ode to Argento and Fulci. The story is simple. A woman becomes unglued by listening to a strange recording that was sent to her. She starts hallucinating. Soon, her hallucinations become so intense and frequent that reality and illusion become one. That, in a nutshell, is the trip Rob Zombie takes you on in "Lords of Salem."

This is like Polanski's "Repulsion" set in the nutty world of 80's Italian horror. Visually, this is crazy, outrageous, blasphemous, and shocking. Zombie creates a dream world with little more than the right lighting and sound. "Lords" has the most dark, brooding, oppressive atmosphere of any recent horror film I can think of. And if the score doesn't get under your skin, you must not be listening.

There are a few missteps. A shot of what I believe was supposed to be the devil looked like a man-turkey. That's right. A man/turkey creature. Disturbing, yes, but not in the way I think it was intended to be. A similar shot shows us a creature that looks like the title character from "Harry and the Hendersons." Also, Sherri Moon Zombie is the lead again, and although she isn't bad, she's definitely out of her league with the rest of the cast, who are excellent.

So, this won't be for everyone, even casual horror fans. But the horror geeks and lovers of old-school psychological horror should eat this up. It is one strange trip.

J'Adore Rob Zombie
mais là j'ai été un peu déçue je dois l'avouer.
C'est un prétexte pour montrer le cul de sa femme.

Désolée Rob
