    One thought on “The Lords of Salem”

    1. Update I watched the film and thought it was awful Don t let it put you off reading the book there two different things I love Rob Zombie, Sheri Moon and House of a thousand corpses but L.O.S was just terrible Bad film, awesome book I really don t understand why this book has got such bad reviews, I loved it It is what I ve been searching for, for a while now a story about evil witches Not the friendly misunderstood teenage girl witches that they all seem to be in every book I ve looked at No th [...]

    2. I love Rob Zombie s films, and I m sure I ll like the movie of this story, but as far as the novel goes Ugh I love all of the elements present, such as Salem witch hunters and witches, scary Satanic rituals, mysterious figures in supposedly vacant rooms, a haunted protagonist struggling to stay on the straight and narrow, hidden messages, etc But the execution was pretty poor It s like he took his screenplay, or notes for his screenplay, and very hastily slapped it all together in vaguely narrat [...]

    3. I just wanted to start this review by saying I LOVE ROB ZOMBIE However, i was very skeptical about reading this book after i read some of the reviews, but i just couldn t help myself I absolutely loved this book Though the beginning started a little slow it morphed into one of the goriest, creepiest, and darkest books i have ever read The main character Heidi was very likable and her past with her addiction as well as her struggle with her recovery was very easy to relate with Even the supportin [...]

    4. Your opinion of this book should not be swayed by my review I m incredibly biased, as I ve been a fan of Zombie s both solo and with White Zombie since I was about eleven.That being said, this book was the shit.Salem, Mass Sept 16th, 1692.John Hawthorne, Samuel Mather and the brothers Magnus, Dean and Virgil, have spotted a coven of witches led by Margaret Morgan Her coven has kidnapped a young pregnant girl and reaped her of her child, killing her and it in the process, in a sacrifice to Satan. [...]

    5. I have no clue what I just read I will be honest I DNF this I got a little half way through it and thought it was blahhhhh Really had high hopes for this.

    6. I kept wondering where this story was going as it was fast paced and had a decent plot Then the book just ended I knew going into it that this was an adaptation for the upcoming movie and now my expectations for said movie have been lowered The book reads like a amateur English assignment at times with things stated strangely and repeated All in all I enjoyed the story but it could have been less predictable and actually had an ending.

    7. I was pretty excited to get an inside look into Rob Zombie s new film in novel format What we get is predictably dark stuff, with all the juicy bits of gore laid out in graphic detail for anyone who likes reading about how a chest wound wheezes air when a lung is punctured The first few chapters delve deep into some dark territory, starting the book off with a Satanic sacrifice to get things flowing This is a novel adapted from one of Rob Zombie s screenplays, so I assume the reader has some ide [...]

    8. I have been a big fan of Rob Zombie for a very long time I started with his music and when he started making movies I was very excited I have liked all of his movies so far and I am very excited to see this one as well When I saw that there was a novelization of the movie I put my name on the list at the library right away As excited as I was to read this I came to realize that after reading this book I expected The plot and story of the book I think will make a great movie, but the writing was [...]

    9. The question of whether or not you should read this book lies in this statement The book is by Rob Zombie I haven t listened to his music except for what s been put on the soundtracks to his movies but I ve seen most of his movies I didn t see the most recent one, but I own the others and I will definitely be seeing this one as soon as I can.His movies are weird and twisted, definitely pushing the bounds of good taste especially you, House of 1,000 Corpses and they are definitely not something f [...]

    10. Ugh What a disappointment The premise and concept were interesting, but the execution was awful I can handle graphic depictions of violence, gore and horror, but only when it serves the plot Unfortunately after the first part the plot got lost in the shock horror value I think Rob Zombie should stick to music and movies because he is definitely not a writer ETA I should clarify that I lovelovelove horror movies and novels and I wasn t expecting amazing writing I also wasn t expecting plotless cr [...]

    11. i wanted to read the book first before i actually seen the movie this is the first book that I have ever read about witches and just even horror in general and man was I hooked I couldn t put this book down I love the way robs imagination ran with the characters it makes you feel like you are one with them I loved the way the book started and I loved the way it ended I loved how this creature just consumed you and took control of your body I loved the way it spoke to you in your head its a reall [...]

    12. Lords of Salem recounts the tale of the descendant of a Colonial era witchhunter who has been targeted for revenge by some of his victims.I will admit that firstly I m a long time horror fan, and secondly that I don t that highly of Rob Zombie s cinematic efforts Devil s Rejects aside Despite that, I figured I would try his attempt at a novel out The book starts out promisingly enough, but ultimately failed to entertain If this had simply been a book tie in for the movie as once was popular, I m [...]

    13. I honestly am not sure why I read this I did not love the movie and I could have guessed I was in for of the same I will give it the credit that it gives information than the movie but that is not really a great thing here Honestly, while the Salem witch hunts are certainly amazing fodder for fiction, the story just seems to circle around and then land exactly where you thought it would I have to say I am a bit surprised to see Zombie come down on the side of the witches are evil thing in fact [...]

    14. I m of two minds concerning Mr Zombie on one hand I respect him as a genuinely devoted fan of the horror genre, but on the other I or less loathe the films he s made in said genre However, there are also two reasons why I ll read this book the local library s got a copy on pre order, and Brian Evenson, one of today s most innovative writers of dark fiction, has co written ghostwritten it.

    15. Im sure that if I read the book first before watching the movie, it would have made sense However, I still found myself bored at times with the story With such a rich and interesting premise, I feel that it was done rather lazily.

    16. It s been a long time since I ve read a horror book that genuinely creeped me out the whole way through I was seriously looking at the shadows in the corners of my house suspiciously while reading it Deliciously gory from the first chapter to the end.

    17. There will be people that fall in the middle, but I have a feeling that the opinions of this book will fall to one extreme or another You re either going to absolutely love this book, or you re going to hate it Which side you end up on will depend on two things how you feel about Rob Zombie films and how you feel about movie novelizations Quality wise, it s really hard to judge this against books that haven t been based off of movie scripts or screenplays This was co written by the guy who wrote [...]

    18. I really enjoyed this, featured much than the film did this was no usual novelisation it felt like the book came first.

    19. 3 Stars This is an uncorrected galley I received from NetGalley Sobriety hasn t been easy for radio DJ Heidi Hawthorne, but she manages well enough with the help of her friends and coworkers along with her dog, Steve When a mysterious band called The Lords sends a gift for her to the station of an even mysterious record she couldn t possibly predict what playing it on the air would do to the people of her little town As evil infects the town and people are brutally murdered the town s history c [...]

    20. Like probably everybody else, I read this because Brian Evenson, a usually interesting writer, co wrote it with Zombie, an at first interesting director who has long since outstayed his welcome in the horror movie genre Frankly, if it DIDN T end with Satan raping the main character I would have been surprised There s so much padding and passivity in this book that should by its very genre a book be ambitious than its source material a movie because there s no budget constraints and there s inte [...]

    21. So I have to admit that I am one of those people who is not familiar with the works of Rob Zombie I had heard the name, but I m not sure I ve ever seen one of his films or listened to his music I am, however, a fan of the horror literature genre, so this book looked fascinating to me.In this book, radio DJ Heidi Hawthorne, in Salem, Massachussetts, is fighting depression while also fighting to stay clean from alcohol and drugs She can t help a nagging feeling that there is a stranger in a nearby [...]

    22. The curse spewed by a coven of witches executed in Salem in 1692 comes to fruition in the present day A disappointingly uninspired idea for a movie by Rob Zombie Can t say I am a fan of all his movies, but they at least had some interesting ideas behind them This one, not so much There s only so far you can take this one when all you re going for is gory shocks.This reads as a novelization of his screenplay or Zombie s treatment of the story and a poor one at that The prose is juvenile, seemingl [...]

    23. I love Rob Zombie s stuff His drawings are wildly ecstatic, his movies are fun romps and his music is in regular rotation on my stereo This adaptation from the film which I haven t seen yet is a great story and I m sure I m going to like the movie itself The writing in the book however shows that it was written by two different authors in the worst ways at points There are some phrases in the text that read like poetry particularly the gory parts of which there are a crap ton , and then there a [...]

    24. I m left with mixed feelings over this one I enjoyed how different and graphic it was but in areas it felt forced To me it seemed a lot like reading a movie script as a lot of it consisted of visual concepts that weren t described very well The visual aspects took up the main bulk of the book and did get rather tedious There wasn t much depth provided regarding characters or background Also the book didn t flow very well and was rather jumpy The book has got me looking forward to the film and I [...]

    25. This was a confusing book,It was very off and on One min I thought It could be a Dream Hallucination, the next I though well it could be happening I mean it is a Witch haunted theme Rob Zombie Story But the and I thought about it it just made no sense maybe its just me But I did like the plot and it was a fun read so I will be seeing the movie soon.

    26. This book is pretty forgettable Not awful, but the plot really didn t introduce any kind of intriguing detail to set it apart from the abundance of other Salem witch trail horror stories That said, if you re interested in this particular story, the movie version is probably a better way to go.

    27. Rock star, filmmaker, and now author, Rob Zombie with B.K Evenson makes witches cool again You can read my full review at HorrorTalk.

    28. If Rob Zombie is able to get away with the same imagery and ends this movie like he and Brian Evenson end the book, I guarantee this will be my favorite movie EVER The book gets three and a half stars.
