Here it is. Ahem.
If you persevere, squint and concentrate, you may just be able to make out A LITTLE of what’s going on here. Maybe.
However poor quality it may be (and it is), this video below is still the first preview of Rob Zombie’s The Lords Of Salem, screened during Mr. Zombie’s recent double-header gig with Megadeth at the PNC Bank Arts Center in New Jersey.
So, enjoy it and if it eases the annoyance of the poor quality, you will also be treated to a bit of Rob Zombie’s Dragula.
The Lords Of Salem stars Sid Haig (House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects), Meg Foster (They Live), Ernest Thomas (Malcolm X), Jeff Daniel Phillips (Zombie’s Halloween II), Torsten Voges (8mm), Bruce Davidson (Munger Road), Sheri Moon Zombie (Zombie’s Halloween, The Devil’s Rejects), Dee Wallace (The Howling, Cujo), Billy Drago (The Hills Have Eyes 2006), Richard Lynch (Zombie’s Halloween, Laid to Rest), Lisa Marie (Sleepy Hollow, Mars Attacks!), Maria Conchita Alonso (The Running Man, Predator 2), Ken Foree (The Devil’s Rejects, Dawn of the Dead), Christopher Knight (The Brady Bunch) and Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes 1977, The Devil’s Rejects).
The synopsis is as follows,
“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.”
More as it comes!
