The Lords Of Salem (2012) Rob Zombie – The Black Sheep

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Rob Zombie has made quite the film career for himself over the last eighteen years. Though he may be considered controversial and polarizing to some, one can't deny the man can stir up an emotional response, clearly does what he loves, and doesn't bend to the will of the almighty critic.

In today's episode of The Black Sheep, we want to discuss the odd duck in his filmography, the one entry that was a departure in style and tone from what had come before. The Lords Of Salem (WATCH IT HEREOWN IT HERE) is his "Rosemary's Baby on acid," as our own, The Arrow describes it, and is so strange and different it just may be his magnum opus. So join us as we dig into why we love Rob Zombie's The Lords Of Salem.

Directed by Rob Zombie and starring Sheri Moon Zombie, Meg Foster, Bruce Davison, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Dee Wallace, Patricia Quinn, and Judy Geeson, The Lords Of Salem  has the following synopsis:

Heidi, a radio DJ, is sent a box containing a record – a "gift from the Lords". The sounds within the grooves trigger flashbacks of her town's violent past. Is Heidi going mad, or are the Lords back to take revenge on Salem, Massachusetts?

This episode of The Black Sheep was Written, Edited, and Narrated by Lance Vlcek, Produced by Lance Vlcek, and Executive Produced by Berge Garabedian.
