The Lords of Salem by Rob ZombieThe former White Zombie frontman and one Hollywood's few directors who can rock paisley, Bedazzled bell-bottoms with platform discotheque boots clearly expatriated from Giorgio Moroder 's mothballed wardrobe, Rob Zombie remains a singularly unique visionary in a cinematic genre too often ruled by dirt-dull sequels and imagination-free "product. Which isn't to say Zombie's fifth feature film is a triumph along the lines of 's soul-searing The Devil's Rejects. Lords , with its dreamy narrative structure and deep references that span the spookshow gamut from Polanski's The Tenant and Rosemary's Baby to any number of hallucinatory Mario Bava films, and from there to lesser-known fare such as Michael Winner 's terminally underrated shocker The Sentinel , is not so much a narrative film as it is a series of micro-nightmares, each and all bolstered by Zombie's trippy and unnerving sense of style: He's off the leash here, and while the film as a whole never coheres or makes all that much sense , it's a gas to see this true American auteur run creepy-ass riot over what passes for "horror movies" in contemporary Hollywood. Surprisingly, the film was produced Oren Peli , the man behind such flatline "shockers" as Insidious and the Paranormal Activity franchise. The Lords of Salem 's plot — what there is of it — takes a backseat to the film's skewed sense of the everyday slipping into the freakishly bizarre. Suffice to say, this being Salem, long gone witches will exact their revenge, Satan gets unofficial top billing, and Sid Haig makes a blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo. Moon Zombie has come a long way, acting-wise, since House of Corpses , too.
