Avoid. It's art house rubbish.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Lords of Salem [DVD] (DVD)
The trailer make this film look like something it's not (a good film) which is a shame as I quite like Rob Zombies work (even Halloween 2 had it's moments but this is a poor effort. It's more like an arthouse movie than a horror or thriller film, with it drifting off into "arty" set pieces which make little sense and get annoying after the 3rd or 4th one.
It's well shot and directed which is why I've given it two stars (you can't give half stars on here) , but the story is full of promise and fails to deliver. None of the actors seem interested, with the exception of Ken who's great as always and at 1 hr 41 minutes, it greatly outstays it's welcome.
I for one hope Rob Zombie finds better material to work with next time (even though he wrote this one) as I can't and won't watch another film like this again. Avoid :-(
