Lords of Salem is one of the more interesting films that will be coming out over the next few months. Director Rob Zombie is kinda at a cross roads of sorts in his film directing career. He started out promising but fluttered with House of 1,000 Corpses (a film that he had a lot of problems with the production company with), but then knocked the sequel The Devil's Rejects completely out of the park. Rejects is pretty much a perfect horror movie, and is relatively revered across the board. He then got the opportunity of a lifetime with a shot at directing the remake to Halloween, which lead to differing opinions. Some love the reboot (I am on this team) and others hated it. Regardless of how your stance, everyone universally felt that his sequel attempt, Halloween 2, was god awful and sucked beyond reason (I am also in this camp). So with four films out and mixed reviews on all but one of them... well, its pretty much put up or shut up time for Zombie. Now he is coming with his most intriguing story to date, a film set in Salem that involves witchcraft, sorcery, demons, monsters, warlocks, past terrors coming back to life, and all other forms of macabre shit. Yup, this one SOUNDS great. But how does it look? Here is the first trailer to be officially released, and I like what I am seeing. How about you?
