The witches of Salem are waiting

Troubled disc jockey Heidi Hawthorne (a solid and appealing performance by Sheri Moon Zombie) receives a mysterious gift containing a record that has odd sounds within its grooves that trigger flashbacks to the violent witch-burning past of the town of Salem, Massachusetts. Pretty soon Heidi finds her life endangered by a coven of lethal witches.

Writer/director Rob Zombie ably crafts a potently spooky gloom-doom atmosphere that reeks of dread and unease, relates the absorbing story at a hypnotic gradual pace, grounds the premise in a believable workaday reality, goes all-out trippy in the surreal last third, and concludes everything on a bold downbeat note. Moreover, Zombie wisely keeps the cheap scares and graphic gore to a refreshing minimum as well as eschews the crude hick aesthetic of his previous films in favor of something a lot more subtle and sophisticated.

The sturdy cast of reliable genre veterans rates as another significant asset: Meg Foster contributes a superbly creepy turn as sinister head witch Margaret Morgan, Judy Geeson, Patricia Quinn, and Dee Wallace are likewise excellent as members of the deadly coven, Bruce Davison makes a nice impression as amiable academic Francis Matthias, Jeff Daniel Phillips does well as the smitten Herman Salvador, and Andrew Prine has a cool, albeit minor secondary part as the stern Reverend Jonathan Hawthorne. The brooding score by John 5 and Griffin Boice further enhances the overall unsettling mood. Brandon Trust's striking widescreen cinematography offers a wealth of eerie and freaky images. A very effective slow burner of a horror film.

Good but lacking

This takes place in Salem MA.A DJ (Sheri Moon Zombie) receives a record recorded by "the Lords". She plays it and it unleashes three witches (Dee Wallace, Patricia Quinn and Judy Geeson) to possess Zombie and make her the bride of Satan.

Dark and disturbing full of sick imagery and gratuitous female nudity. Not a lot of blood and gore but the imagery and tone more than make up for it. The acting is excellent across the board and it all leads to a disturbing ending.

This was barely released (for some reason) but deserves recognition. I give it a 6.

A Different and Unique film from Master Of Horror, Rob Zombie.

It's the 26th of September and it's also Ms. Sheri Moon Zombie's birthday. Not only is she known as the wife of Rob Zombie, but she has played many amazing characters in all of her husband's films. She is an icon and a queen of horror, and an actress who I have so much respect for. To celebrate her special day, I watched one of my personal favorite movies of hers, 2012's The Lords of Salem, written and directed by her husband, Rob Zombie. Sheri Moon Zombie played the iconic psychotic killer, Baby Firefly, in House Of 1000 Corpses, with it's sequel, The Devil's Rejects, and her recently badass character Charly in Rob's 31 (2016). In The Lords of Salem, she plays the good character, Heidi, a rock DJ at a radio station in Salem, Massachusetts. She receives a mysterious record from "The Lords", a record which is an ancient curse from the evil witch, Margaret Morgan (played by the legendary Meg Foster), and her coven of 6. It also features Jeff Daniel Phillips, Ken Foree, Bruce Davidson, Dee Wallace, Judy Geeson, Patricia Quinn, Maria Conchita Alonso, and many more. Horror legends, Sid Haig and Michael Berryman have cameos too. Sheri's performance is incredibly intense, with the emotions showing in her character, and I just do not know why some people never give her the credit that we, the fans, know she totally deserves a hell of a lot more. She should be doing more movies than most of the overrated and boring actors working in Hollywood today. Also, a massive comeback for the legendary Meg Foster (John Carpenter's They Live, Masters Of The Universe, Stepfather 2, and Rob Zombie's latest flick, 31), with her mindblowing performance as the main villain, Margaret Morgan. In my opinion, this is Meg Foster's best performance ever. Lords Of Salem is a feature filled with eerie elements, visuals, vivid atmospheres, an amazing soundtrack, etc. It's a slow-paced, shocking tale of horror that was made in a beautiful and artistic way. I know that not many people love or even "get" this movie as much as I do, but when you are actually, really in the mood (paying attention, that is), you'll definitely enjoy it; it's a very different and unique film from Master Of Horror, Rob Zombie.
