Heidi, a radio station DJ living in Salem, Massachusetts, 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?
Horror - As with writer/director Rob Zombie's previous films, this is a
violent, explicit horror film. This is a bit more slowly paced than
most modern horror films. In addition to violence and sex, some
treatment of religious imagery and figures would be offensive to some
audiences. This is film is definitely not for children.
Roger EbertFull Review Good 'The Lords of Salem" is a genuinely nasty and disturbing piece of work, but its cumulative nerve-shredding effect is not just the product of effective direction.0
Washington PostFull Review Below Average Although mayhem is inevitable, the movie doesn't feature the relentless psycho-killer gore of Zombie's earlier flicks. Much of the story is devoted to establishing an ominous mood, with spooky shots of the hallway in Heidi's rooming house more common than spurts of blood.
NY PostFull Review Good Be prepared for naked old witches, demonic tentacled creatures, a defeathered and dancing turkey, a randy priest and some innovative torture. Fans of Zombie will want to rush out to see this stylishly lensed work... Others are advised to look elsewhere for fun in the dark.
