    What was her purpose? I'm lost.

It's kind of a trip down that rabbit hole and when we get back out we aren't really sure what happened. I've seen ambiguous endings that are just flat out lazy and I really don't think this is one of them.
      The actual ending was fine. The way it was put together was beyond lame. The montage, and the song were completely out of place. A more subtle approach would've worked wonders.

      • The tone of this film was much more serious than I was expecting. To the point where I felt that it was less fun than House of 1000 Corpses or The Devil's Rejects. It still includes many of the things I've come to expect from Rob Zombie like an excellent score and casting of horror alums like Ken Foree and Dee Wallace. Meg Foster's performance as the witch was absolutely creepy. It also delivers on some very disturbing imagery and some interesting psychedelic visuals.

          Lords is no more serious than the Halloween remakes. There may be less jokes and eccentric dialogue but the outlandish happenings and bizarre characters do keep the feel of the film from being overly grim as Rob may have intended it to be.

          LOS may not be as "fun" as House or Rejects but it isn't trying to be. Not really fair to criticize it for that.

          Put "2 Fast 2 Furious" in B&W and Se7en thinks he's watching a Bergman film.
          I find the Metal Gear Solid series to be mediocre at best.

            Yeah I'm not a fan of Salem, but criticizing it for not being as fun as House of 1000 corpses? What kind of logic is that? Something like The Thing or Hellraiser isn't as "fun" as 1000 Corpses either but they're much much better movies.




            Right, 'cause the world is just buzzing about this 4th entry to an already tired franchise. I can't seem to go anywhere without hearing about Jurassic World. It's the next Hunger Games.

            $30 - $40 million opening weekend if they're lucky, and then out of existence it will quickly go. Count on it.

              Not very sound logic at all. The rest of his review was pretty positive so maybe he didn't mean it as a complaint. There are plenty of things to take issue with in that movie but the fun factor is not one of those things.

                    What? Those films were plenty fun

                      I guess I wasn't as clear as I thought but those first two sentences were about my expectations before watching The Lords Of Salem being solely familiar with the other two films that I mentioned. They weren't in any way meant as a criticism of the film but it seems like you may have figured that out.

                      I've only watched the first one and it's been so long the only thing I really remember about it was not caring for it at the time.
