Polished and calculated, this is a nerve-shattering fright fest bolstered by immaculate technique.

It's a credit to Zombie's interest in growing as an artist that he's drawing from more mature inspirations here, but it's also part of why the movie doesn't work.

It's all meant to be monstrous, unspeakable, blasphemous horror but it comes across more like a slightly dirty drawing, passed in seventh-grade religion class.

Movies by Rob Zombie, the goth rocker turned cult filmmaker, aren't for everybody. But he couldn't care less.

Considerable care goes into establishing the premise, but the film eventually abandons psychological subtlety for hallucinatory garishness, which is too bad.

"The Lords of Salem" will make you feel bad. But it's supposed to.

Rob Zombie, film scholar? I'm convinced. Rob Zombie, filmmaker? Mmmyeah, not so much.

A more restrained kind of grungy horror throwback than the rocker-turned-filmmaker has offered to date, at least marking a step in a different direction, if not necessarily the right one.

Atmosphere is three-fourths of the game in a horror film, and "The Lords of Salem" has it in spades.

A portrait of vengeful occult torment that pushes hard to redefine the meaning of "witch trials."

Although it eventually descends into silliness, this creepily atmospheric effort delivers some effective scares along the way.

You get the idea that "The Lords of Salem" would be a lot scarier if you could tell what was going on.

Zombie proves once again that he understands how many different ways there are to give an audience the creeps.

Instead of retreating into his manic, hyper-allusive style of psychedelic, grindhouse-friendly pastiche, Zombie tested his considerable skills and made something different.

Some of this looks cool enough, but most of it's just silly satanic mumbo jumbo that's not particularly scary.

The movie is eerily photographed, but never suspenseful or scary, and eventually, events descend into goat-sacrificing silliness.

Less inferno than slow burn, Rob Zombie's retro witch thriller The Lords of Salem has plenty of portent but not much payoff.
