The Lords of Salem Teaser Casts Its Spell

So I know I’m a little late to the game with presenting the teaser trailer to Rob Zombie’s The Lords of Salem since it was released a little while ago but I wanted to mention it because I think it looks rather fascinating.  I think Rob Zombie is an incredibly interesting filmmaker that doesn’t always direct films that agree with everyone and that is fine by me.  I like that Zombie, with exception to his remake of Halloween, does his own thing.  I liked his Halloween II.  Despite working within the confines of an iconic franchise, he still managed to add his own flavor and made Michael Myers such a beast, with each stab of his knife feeling incredibly brutal and his presence incredibly imposing.  The Devil’s Rejects is, to date, Zombie’s best film and really showed that he’s a unique, if not divisive, filmmaker.  I’m glad Zombie’s out there doing his thing, even if I don’t always agree with what he’s doing, though so far I’ve liked most of his decisions.

With The Lords of Salem, it looks like Zombie is changing up his cinematography a bit for something a little more restrained.  The footage in the teaser looks beautiful and evokes a Kubrickian feeling.  The music of the teaser definitely helps add to that notion.  I like seeing Sheri Moon Zombie trying out the lead role as I have enjoyed her in Zombie’s previous films.  I really cannot wait to see this and wish I could watch it now (of course) but it looks like I have to wait until sometime in 2013.

Feel free to chime in with your thoughts on the teaser.  Do you like what you’re seeing so far?

    Crazy! I’m so confused and I think I like it! I agree with you – I don’t always love everything Zombie does, but I totally respect the fact that his movies have his own stamp on them. I’m totally due for a rewatching of Devil’s Rejects. GREAT movie – even better than House of 1,000 Corpses. Looking forward to seeing Salem!

    It’s a wicked trailer and one that I’ve watch at least a dozen times. Reviews are either people loved it or hated it which sounds exactly like a typical Rob Zombie film. REALLY looking forward to this one.
