Of course this isn't a film for everyone, someone looking for another gore fest or cookie cutter teeny bopper horror film should look else where as "The Lords of Salem" is a horror film that stands out from the norm in every way possible and delivers itself as a true horror experience.
All these websites, blogs, and reviewers can trash the film but its obvious to me they just don't know a true piece of horror when they see it, one site or actually person in particular is Brad Miska from bloody-disgusting.com, I think he is a horrible reviewer for their website and has bad taste in movie choices. You want to read a review, than check out zombiehamster.com review for the lords, its dead on - zombiehamster.com/reviews/theatrical-release/the-lords-of-salem-2012/.
So now let the hate begin, I know all you angry reviewers/movie watchers out there can't wait to trash my review and give it a bunch of "Unhelpful" votes which is fine, I knew what I was getting myself into. Regardless "The Lords of Salem" is something the horror genre needed weather you liked it or not.
If "Lords of Salem" was made in the 1970's (perhaps even as late as 1981) then it would have been hailed as an iconic horror film, much in the same way as such other greats of the genre of that time, as Dario Argento's "Suspiria", "Rosemary's Baby" or even that of Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining". Sadly, however, the film finds life in 2013 where most of the audiences that will go and see it will neither understand or have the patience for Zombie's latest creation.
We find ourselves following along the life of DJ Heidi Hawthorn (aka Heidi LaRox), played by Sheri Moon Zombie, living life in Salem, Massachusetts, as night time radio's hottest DJs. When One night after a show with her cohorts and hosts Herman `Whitey' Salvador (Jeff Daniel Phillips) and Herman Jackson (Ken Foree), Heidi receives an old wooden box containing a vinyl record and a note saying it is from the band The Lords. Heidi takes the box home, and while she and Whitey are hanging around Heidi's apartment, Whitey plays the record. The music is mostly made up of string instruments being played in some strange rhythmic beat.Read more ›
the story is basically about immolated witches using what looked like a 78 rpm record in the present time to crack the doorway open for their return via the descendants of their executors. the vehicle for their musical transmission is local salem deejay Heidi hawthorne, played by sheri moon zombie, who really does a nice job, i thought. not perfect, but alternately energetic and morose, and always working hard. in her alone moments, i thought she was most effective, conveying simultaneously what recovering from addiction must be like, as well as what demonic entities entering her head must be like. she's lost, and nothing helps you get found like a coven of modern-day practicing witches. this film, less than zombie's others, is filled with more seemingly normal people, though many turn out to be not so. i really thought judy geeson, patricia quinn, and (especially) dee wallace were awesome as the coven of witches lurking under heidi's nose. they worked well together, were funny and dark, and, by the end, were very much who I was rooting for. bruce davison in full jeff bridges regalia was awesome as always, and ken foree and jeff Daniel Phillips were their usual, hardworking, effective selves. special mention must be made of meg foster, who is sublimely uncomfortable as the crone witch leader of yore.Read more ›

I know, and I'm trying to decide which friends to turn on to this movie. To me it's like the true horror movie. It's not just a violent disturbing murder slasher movie, which I also can appreciate as well. It 's just that those movies aren't horror and aren't really scary by my definition. ... Read More

|Why I love this Movie (minor spoiler)||
i agree; i found the ending to be haunting, depraved, and beautiful. honestly, i would have liked to see sheri standing atop her pile of corpses while the entire song played. all tomorrow's parties has long been my favorite vu song, and to see it used as it was was a thing of beauty. i wonder...
