The Lords of Salem

Rob Zombie is back on the big screen with a film that celebrates the satanic cult-classic films of the 70's. Instead of young nubile witches we get filthy hags, religious zealots, and some of the creepiest music to come from a soundtrack since the Goblin's classic theme for Suspiria. The plethora of genre favorites abound with a special nod of appreciation to Patricia Quinn from the film, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The hag frontal nudity and goats aside, the film is so art-house that it does not deliver on the scares which most horror fans want. It is worth a watch but I don't see this making much of a splash at the box office but may have an after-life as a midnight movie or on VOD.
