Lords Of Salem, Rob Zombie
There are few genre filmmakers working today who are as exciting and unpredictable as Rob Zombie. The rock musician (he continues to make music – he just dropped a new album, Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor) has a singular love for all things horror, particularly the down-and-dirty chillers from the seventies and early eighties, augmenting these earlier films with bold stylistic experimentation and a kind of gleeful willingness to push the envelope when it comes to sex and violence. His latest film, "Lords of Salem," produced by Blumhouse Productions and distributed by Anchor Bay, was released last week. A bold stylistic departure for Zombie, it's a leisurely paced descent into madness more akin to Roman Polanski's apartment trilogy than anything involving Texas, chainsaws, or massacres.

Hockey movies aren't exactly the easiest sell. While the genre has spawned a hit every now and again -- "Miracle," "Mighty Ducks," "Slap Shot" -- more often than not, movies like this year's "Goon" come and go with nary a peep (though it did well in, you guessed it, Canada). And even Kevin Smith, who at one point was furiously talking up his two-movie finale "Hit Somebody," has quieted down about that one. But Rob Zombie, of all people, looks to be the next guy who will strap on the skates.
