To put it politely, the cinema of Rob Zombie is fairly polarizing. Some folks love him, some folks hate him, and there just aren’t a whole lot of people in the middle. Over the course of 10 years, he has made six feature films and one of the fake trailers for the Rodriguez/Tarantino experiment, Grindhouse. Chances are, you either think all of his films are good or, at least, have some kind of merit or are just revolted by the notion that anyone allows him near a camera. The Lords of Salem is unlikely to make anyone jump from his or her respective camp, but it’s also his best film to date and an amazing piece of contemporary horror.
