THE LORDS OF SALEM
2012, Lionsgate, 101 min, USA/UK/Canada, Dir: Rob Zombie

A mysterious record from the Lords shows up at a Salem radio station, and DJ Heidi plays it thinking it's just an elaborate marketing scheme by a local band. Instead, the music on the records causes Heidi to have visions of a past trauma. When the Lords announce their first concert, the women of town are drawn to the hypnotic drone that evokes Salem's historic witchery.


MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE
1987, Park Circus/MGM, 106 min, USA, Dir: Gary Goddard

“I have the power!” A battle fought in the stars comes to Earth as the popular Mattel toy line comes to the big screen. After stealing a cosmic key, Skeletor (a perfectly cast Frank Langella) seizes control of the planet Eternia and is on the brink of ultimate power – unless He-Man (played by living action figure Dolph Lundgren) and his allies (including a pre-“Friends” Courteney Cox) can stop him. Elevated by Bill Conti’s epic score, this underrated fantasy courses with pulpy energy - Marvel Comics artist Jack Kirby was reputedly a source of inspiration. With Billy Barty, Meg Foster, Jon Cypher and Chelsea Field.
