lords_of_salemReviews for this film from our members:

  • Beth Accomando @ KPBS Cinema Junkie
    • Excerpt: Having the adorable Dee Wallace (remember what a cute werewolf she made in “The Howling” and she was the sweet mom in “E.T.”) teamed with Judy Geeson and Patricia Quinn as the revived coven of witches was great. If the film had been about them, the film might have been good.
  • Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy
    • Excerpt: [Rob Zombie] makes good on the promise of being one of America’s most distinctive horror directors to securely become one of its best.
  • Patrick Bromley @ F This Movie!
  • Tony Dayoub @ Cinema Viewfinder
    • Excerpt: I don’t think I’ve seen this much moody ambulation since Quentin Tarantino followed Pam Grier as she made her way through LAX and the Del Amo Fashion Center in JACKIE BROWN.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: Though “The Lords of Salem” isn’t what one could call a good film, it’s certainly an interesting piece of work without throttling us.
  • Frank Ochieng @ Yahoo! Voices Movies
    • Excerpt: Overall, The Lords of Salem tries to scream a bizarre and gruesome game of horror-filled high jinx but comes up with nothing but whispers of synthetic outlandishness. Zombie is an eccentric and erratic force behind a camera and that is not necessarily a bad thing.
  • Paulo Peralta @ CinEuphoria [Portuguese]
  • [New – 9/19] | Nuno Reis @ SciFiWorld Portugal [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: Os minutos finais compensam o tédio do resto com todas as ideias e sensações que faltaram durante uma hora. Sai-se com uma memória vaga do que se assistiu, ocasionalmente pontuada pelos ruídos do vinil.
  • Diego Salgado @ Miradas de Cine [Spanish]
  • Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies
    • Excerpt: It wants to be a rock and roll “Rosemary’s Baby,” but most of the time it’s just a bunch of dream sequences floating around in space, looking for a movie to latch on to.
