Scary Movie Month Movie Club #1: The Lords of Salem
Today is the first installment of our Scary Movie Month Movie Club (#SMMMC)! Thanks to all of you who were excited about the idea and who understood what we were going for with our picks. Even the movies you don't like -- and there may be two or three (or four) -- should leave us with stuff to talk about.
Our first movie is The Lords of Salem, which I thought many of you would want to watch during #ScaryMovieMonth because it's one of the year's high-profile horror movies and came out on DVD and Blu-ray pretty recently. Plus, it's the new Rob Zombie movie. Even if you dislike him as a filmmaker, his movies are worth seeing because they represent a vision. That's more than you can say about most of the found footage junk that comes out
So I don't want to start the discussion in any specific place -- I'd rather you guys guide the conversation. But I'm excited to take part in it, and I'm excited to hear what you all have to say. I like the movie a lot, but I understand it if anyone doesn't. Let's do our best to make the thread about more than just "I like it" or "I think it's bad." There's more to talk about here, right?
Let's put on our Lords of Salem record and start talking.
