As you know, Rob Zombie cut his filmmaking teeth on retro inspired exploitation films (House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects), and then made a Hollywood detour with an ill advised remake & sequel (Halloween, Halloween II) before taking a break to return to his shock-rock music roots. Now, Zombie is back with THE LORDS OF SALEM, and it looks incredible. The hauntingly gorgeous and atmospheric trailer has just premiered, which we’ve included for your viewing pleasure! Anchor Bay swooped in and acquired the distribution rights, so expect to see this in your local cinema Spring 2013!
Synopsis: “Heidi, a blonde rock chick, DJs at a local radio station and, together with the two Hermans (Whitey and Munster), forms part of the “Big H Radio Team”.
A mysterious wooden box containing a vinyl record arrives for Heidi, “a gift from the Lords”. She assumes it’s a rock band on a mission to spread their word. As Heidi and Whitey play the Lords’ record, it starts to play backwards, and Heidi experiences a flashback to a past trauma.
Later Whitey plays the Lords’ record, dubbing them the Lords of Salem, and to his surprise, the record plays normally and is a massive hit with listeners.
The arrival of another wooden box from the Lords presents the Big H Team with free tickets, posters and records to host a gig in Salem. Soon Heidi and her cohorts find that the gig is far from the rock spectacle they’re expecting: The original Lords of Salem are returning, and they’re out for BLOOD.
