    The best music video I've seen in ages.

    Atmospheric and compelling, Zombie is in full-frontal flair with Lords and proudly presents a far more distuingished side to his directorial work and general approach to film. Whilst the story is odd and some of the choices in character design such as how he chose to depict the Devil are really quite bizarre and probably only make sense to Zombie himself. Whilst I love Zombie, I've never found his wife to be of much substance in his films especially when it comes to emotional scenes and I find her to fare better in the role of a psycopath (House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil's Rejects...), nevertheless Rob's approach to witchcraft and american history are all very interesting and the film is unique enough that it might appeal to those who previously dismissed his fimography. Veteran actors Judy Geeson, Patricia Arquette and Dee Wallace Stone star as three humble "sisters" and are one of the weirdest yet greatest additions to the picture.

    What was up with this movie?! As usual with (Mostly) all of Rob Zombie's movies, I didn't get it.Out of all the Rob Zombie movies I've seen this has to be the worst.While I was watching or suppose to be watching it, I left the room a couple times & forgot I even had it on.The part that I really didn't get was the ending.Was Rob Zombie trying to create some visually stunning masterpiece or something? Maybe somebody would be nice enough to explain to me what was going on.The movie had me trying to figure out what I was watching & the ending had me thinking WT*!?

    Simply one of the worst Movie. I prefer the Documentries of Salem "legends" and "ghost stories" on History Channel.
