About this movie

Heidi is a late night radio DJ in Salem, home of the famous Salem witch trials. One night she receives a mysterious wooden box containing a vinyl record and, assuming it is from an exciting new band, plays it to her listeners. However, upon hearing the record Heidi begins to experience disturbing flashbacks that leave her deeply traumatised. With the band on their way to town to play a one off gig, Heidi soon realises that the show is not going to be the rock spectacle that she was expecting.... © 2012 Alliance Films (UK) Limited, All Rights Reserved.

If you've watched a RZ movie before you'll already know that his wife, Sherri Moon Zombie, is bound to feature somewhere. In this movie she's the lead actress, and that coupled with a thin plot, are unfortunately the film's biggest let downs. She's not the greatest actress in the world! I'm a huge fan of Rob's music and have been since the White Zombie days. His movies, however have been a mixed bag. They tend to be generally poor but with some great B Movie referencing moments. (although I thought the Halloween remakes were commendable) Lords of Salem is not as good as House of 1000 corpses and Devils Rejects, those films had more of a storyline and some great moments. I'll be honest not much really happens in this movie. It's in the last segment of the film that you really see Rob's art school influence coming through and there are some great visual moments (albeit not all that original) Sorry to Rob's movie fans out there, of which I know there are many, but this film really didn't cut it with me. I'm sure there are film students out there who could have done better

As long as you like Rob Zombie films and can indulge his farcical whimsical approach you'll love this. If you want a seriously scary horror go elsewhere. The "tune" by the witches stuck in my head for ages!

Very strange! Historicaly incorrect as we now know those persecuted in salem were innocent, accused by two little girls! That aside as a film in its self its interesting but kinda bizarre. Worth a watch!
