Rob Zombie is most certainly a talented visualist, but he’s an inconsistent storyteller. That being said, I’ve found something to appreciate (and dislike) in almost all of his films and I figured now would be as good a time as any to take a look at his filmography. If anything, he does deserve some credit for having his own vision.
His upcoming The Lords of Salem hits limited theaters (New York, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Chicago, Philadelphia, DC, Miami, Dallas, Houston, Detroit) on April 19th from Anchor Bay Films, and I also thought it would be interesting to discuss my thoughts on the film within the larger context of his overall filmography.
The film “tells the tale of Heidi (Sheri Moon Zombie), a radio station DJ living in Salem, Massachusetts, who receives a strange wooden box containing a record, a “gift from the Lords.” Heidi listens, and the bizarre sounds within the grooves immediately trigger flashbacks of the town’s violent past. Is Heidi going mad, or are the “Lords of Salem” returning for revenge on modern-day Salem?”

And just like that it’s 2013.
How in the bloody hell did this happen? The site is nearing its 12 year anniversary, there’s a remake of The Evil Dead on the way, and the world didn’t end (well, that’s boring).
While most people use the holiday season to kick back and relax, we worked our asses off to ensuring top notch content every single day throughout the snowy madness. Thus, it would be a crime for me to not use this time to send you off to our completed coverage, which includes all of our “best & worst” movies lists, “best & worst” trailers and posters, and of course our extensive 2013 preview pieces. Evan Saathoff took a deep look at horror on the small screen, while Dickson asked a serious question: What counts as horror?
Even the boys in the Video Game (Dead Pixels), Comics (Graphic Content) and Music sections of Bloody Disgusting got into the mix as they all presented a wide variety of awesome year-end lists.
And with that we look to 2013 and beyond. We thank all of you dear readers from the bottom of our disgusting hearts for all of these amazing years, and look forward to bringing the horror day in and day out for the next 365 days! READ MORE
If you’re reading this, perhaps you read my post about the year’s best trailers. Now it’s time to bring the hammer down on the worst. Like I’ve said before, marketing is an art form, and it’s just as eligible for appraisal as the product its selling.
The majority of these are from correspondingly awful movies, but occasionally you get that rare nugget of a trailer that’s actually for a good movie that it can’t seem to sell it at all. We’ve got a couple of those in here as well.

Summit Entertainment ‘s Gone hits theaters today. I’m urging you not to go.
“Every single character is such a vacant red herring without any semblance of human logic or emotion that I almost felt myself sliding into uncanny valley. Watching ‘Gone’ is like watching the world’s dumbest person play the world’s worst RPG side mission… it just chooses to be lazy. It chooses to be boring and bad. With so much in its corner you would think it could provide at least one single entertaining moment, but it willfully declines. And that is unforgivable. It chooses to take your money without the effort or intent of living up to its end of the bargain.”
Directed by Heitor Dhalia, and also starring Emily Wickersham, Wes Bentley, Jennifer Carpenter, Erin Carufel, Sebastian Stan, and Socratis Otto, “the thriller revolves around a young woman named Jill (Seyfried) who returns home from her night shift to find her sister’s bed empty. She’s convinced the serial killer who kidnapped her two years before has come back to finish the job. But the police do not believe Jill, who knows time is running out. With no one to turn to, she sets off to find her sister and face her abductor once and for all.”
