The Lords of Salem
The Lords of Salem is musician-turned-filmmaker Rob Zombie’s 2012 movie about a disc jockey who is sent a strange record. The music that she hears when she plays it subliminally tells the story of her town’s brutal occult past.
In typical Rob Zombie fashion, The Lords of Salem is an aesthetically beautiful movie with a one-note plot. Also in typical Zombie fashion, it stars a bevy of cult horror icons including Meg Foster, Bruce Davison, Patricia Quinn, Ken Foree, Andrew Prine, Dee Wallace, Sid Haig, Michael Berryman, and, of course, Sheri Moon Zombie. Check out The Lords of Salem here at TubiTV.
Open Windows is about a man who unwittingly stalks his favorite actress over the internet when a guy posing as her personal manager provides him with private online live video feeds. Soon enough, the fan realizes that he is just a pawn in a bigger game run by the “manager.”
Directed by Nacho Vigalondo, Open Windows was made in 2014, the same year as the similarly-conceptualized Unfriended (but a year after The Den). It features the same internet screen point of view, but isn’t nearly as effective as Unfriended. It does open the world up a bit with multiple screens and mobile devices, though. Also stars Elijah Wood as the superfan and Sasha Grey as the actress. Surf on over to Open Windows right here at Vudu.
Directed by Brian Yuzna in 2003, Beyond Re-Animator, sees good old Dr. Herbert West up to his old tricks of trying to conquer death again, this time from the confines of his prison laboratory. And also this time, he thinks he has found the missing link to his research.
This third Re-Animator movie is probably the weakest of the bunch, but even a mediocre Re-Animator movie is still packed with gooey, goopy fun. It also brings back Jeffrey Combs as Dr. West, which is the only way to do it. Get re-animated with Beyond Re-Animator right here at Popcornflix.
Wolf is a 1994 movie about a book publisher who is worn out and down on his luck. His life turns around when he is bitten by a werewolf and, subsequently, becomes one himself. Unfortunately, being a werewolf has a downside, too.
This clever reimagining of the werewolf trope has an extremely accomplished cast for a monster movie, with an ensemble that includes Jack Nicholson in the lead role and Michelle Pfeiffer, James Spader, Richard Jenkins, Christopher Plummer, and David Hyde Pierce in support. This is one of those nineties highbrow horror monster movies, but it lacks the pretension of, say, Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Catch Wolf here at Crackle.
Chained begins with a boy and his mother being kidnapped by a psychotic cab driver. The mother is killed, but the boy’s fate is worse; he is kept for years as a prisoner and reluctant accomplice to the serial killer cabbie’s murderous deeds.
Between the harshness of the boy’s imprisonment and the brutality of the cabbie’s murders, this 2012 horror flick is one of those movies that makes you feel dirty. It’s not torture porn, but it’s pretty disturbing. Vincent D’Onofrio gives a creepily standout performance as the killer. You can see Chained here at TubiTV.
