Shock rocker turned filmmaker Rob Zombie pits an emotionally fragile radio personality against a coven of undead witches in his fifth feature. The result is genuinely creepy if not jump-out-of-your-seat scary.
Witches gone wild, then and now. Zombie plays around with history as to whether or not witches have really existed. A reality rewrite regarding women historically persecuted for rebellious minds of their own, likely to leave especially feminists fuming.
An original take on screen torment, and while Salem contains considerable flaws, its ambition is frequently hypnotizing, attempting to trigger a different kind of disquiet in a genre that could use the challenge.
Though admirable for moving away from director Rob Zombie's comfort zone by focusing on mood and atmosphere over jump scares and a body count, the viewer walks away feeling the one thing horror should never elicit: indifference.
