The Lords of Salem

The Lords of Salem

After the fitfully inspired Halloween (2007) and Halloween II (2009), goth-rocker-turned-horror-auteur Rob Zombie returns to form with this chilling story of a radio DJ who begins to unravel after playing a mysterious record sent to her by a coven of witches. Zombie finds formal inspiration in Roman Polanski and Stanley Kubrick, prioritizing atmosphere over blood and guts and, as the DJ slides further into madness, all but abandoning the plot in favor of unbridled hallucination. Polished and calculated, this is a nerve-shattering fright fest bolstered by immaculate technique. With Sheri Moon Zombie and Bruce Davison.
