Disappointing horror movie
I've seen all of Rob Zombie's past movies, and I have to confess that I didn't think much of any of them. Needless to say, "The Lords of Salem", while a definite improvement over these past movies, kind of left me cold. The movie does have some definite merit, though. For a budget that was reportedly only 2.5 million dollars, the movie looks very good, coming across as more expensive than it really was. The acting by the various participants is adequate, and Zombie in the director's chair does generate some genuine mood as well as some striking images. However, Zombie's script is kind of a mess. The story is VERY slow-moving, taking much more time to unfold than what was needed. Also, while the central core of the story makes sense (sort of), there are a number of minor details that left me scratching my head in confusion. In the end, while the movie is not terrible, it's kind of unsatisfying. I do think that Zombie could make a great horror movie, but I think he needs to listen to other people wise in the horror genre before writing or directing.
