The Lords Of Salem Poster

film reviews | movies | features | BRWC The Lords Of Salem Poster

The return of the legendary Rob Zombie is here, with his most ambitious and accomplished work to date – the chilling and atmospheric The Lords of Salem out in select UK cinemas April 26th.

A huge departure from his previous movies, ‘The Lords Of Salem’ firmly establishes Rob Zombie as a unique and truly gifted filmmaker with a groundbreaking horror that slowly works its way under the viewer’s skin. There’s an almost European feel to ‘The Lords of Salem’ and it owes more to Roman Polanski, Dario Argento and Ken Russell than to the American “grindhouse” cinema one would most associate with Zombie. Of course, this being Rob Zombie, classic horror movie references abound and fans will be delighted to notice nods to the likes of “Rosemary’s Baby”, “The Shining”, “The Sentinel”, “The Devil Rides Out” and John Carpenter’s “Prince Of Darkness”, amongst others.

A former drug user, Heidi is now clean and works as a rock DJ at the local radio station along with fellow DJs, Herman Whitey Salvador and Herman Jackson. Following one of their regular evening shows, Heidi receives a square wooden box containing a vinyl record, the only indication as to its origin is a note proclaiming “A gift from the Lords”. Assuming it is merely a PR stunt by an ambitious band, Heidi gives the record a spin and immediately begins to experience bizarre flashbacks to a past, long-forgotten trauma triggered by the haunting sounds contained on the record.
