Rob Zombie’s new film is a departure from gorier efforts like House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects and his two Halloween remakes. In fact it’s initially quite quiet and restrained, before growing increasingly surreal and unhinged as it progresses to a climax as garish, lurid and loud as an MTV rock video. That’s an observation, though, and not a criticism; The Lords Of Salem is Rob Zombie’s love letter to the movies of Dario Argento, Michele Soavi and Lucio Fulci (among others) with a healthy dose of Ken Russell’s sheer wild exuberance thrown in for good measure.
