Sinopsis

Heidi, a radio station DJ, receives a wooden box containing a record. Heidi listens and the bizarre sounds within the grooves immediately trigger flashbacks of Salem’s violent past. Is Heidi going mad or are the Lords of Salem returning for revenge on modern day Salem?

Părerea noastră

With his new film 3 From Hell now touring select cinemas, we rewind back to the rockstar-auteur’s cinematic invocation of witchcraft. An unexpected reckoning with addiction, The Lords of Salem is a blasphemous yet poignant journey which asks whether Satan is women’s tormentor or their liberator.

Zombie lovingly guides us back into the womb of genre film. Like many classic horror films, Lords of Salem is more concerned with a woman’s mental health than what’s coming for her. It takes great pains to show us the tragedy of her closest friends’ devotion which she rejects, believing as so many of us do that she’s unworthy of care and attention. That is more horrific than any witch or demon, that help is reaching out for us and we don’t reach back because we don’t think we can.

[…It’s] the most interesting and disturbing American horror film to be released so far this year… Zombie has pared away most of his most commercial (and irritating) tendency as a filmmaker (the jokey sadism) in favor of shocks that are less easily contained and digested. The terror in Zombie’s films has never been fun, and now it’s no longer even purely visceral, as the filmmaker seems to be intent on capturing nothing less than immobilizing personal desolation.

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.
