The Lords of Salem [2013]

Plot Summary

A Salem, MA, radio DJ receives a mysterious record that unleashes a diabolical force of evil in this slow-burn shocker written and directed by Rob Zombie, and produced by Paranormal Activity’s Oren Peli. Back in 1696, Reverend Jonathan Hawthorne (Andrew Prine) condemned a coven of witches led by Margaret Morgan (Meg Foster) to death, burning them without remorse in the woods surrounding Salem. Just over 300 years later, the small town has become a beacon for anyone interested in the supernatural. Heidi Hawthorne (Sheri Moon Zombie), Herman “Whitey” Salvador (Jeffrey Daniel Phillips) and Herman Jackson (Ken Foree) are the hosts of a popular Salem radio show with a playful occult slant. One day, after interviewing noted author Francis Matthias (Bruce Davison) on the air, Heidi receives a package containing a record from a band named the Lords. The following day, when Heidi plays the record on the airwaves, a strange spell falls over the locals.

Later, as the Lords announce they will be performing a concert in town and the typically carefree Heidi grows increasingly withdrawn, Matthias senses that the sins of the past may be returning to haunt Salem. And he couldn’t be more right — something wicked has returned to this cursed town, and with each day that passes, Heidi slips ever deeper into its sinister grasp. Patricia Quinn, Dee Wallace, Michael Berryman, and Sid Haig co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    This is amazing. I’m not a “Zombie” fan if I consider his whole body of work. Sure, “Corpses” threw me for a loop because it is so sublime. But “Rejects” was much too linear for me. Halloween and Michael Meyers bored me, but I’ve never liked Halloween and consider it an “essential classic,” but very boring because I don’t get it. Anyhow, based on the trailers, Zombie is playing with a dream-like world and I like it! II’m ready to open the door to his Big Bad Wolf. Evil isn’t measured in blood; rather, it’s the scream in the mirror (circa Lynch’s “Elephant man”). This film looks promising. I’m happy to part with my money to see it.

    Zombie has a mind that is twisted just right. He spanks all of these new wanna be scary movies in the butt. Keep making movies Zombie. We need thinkers, writers and directors like you.

    I love what this man does with movies. Taking the historic account of basically LSD induced people and twisting it Zombie style is just brilliant.
