With the World Premiere of Rob Zombie’s The Lords Of Salem due to take place on Monday as part of the Toronto International Film Festival, I couldn’t be more excited. Soon, I will hear whether one of my most eagerly anticipated films of 2012 is a hit, or merely a damp squib.
In light of this, director Zombie took to his official Facebook page and dropped off some more poster artwork for his upcoming movie.
Roll on the reviews, I say
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), 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), Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes 1977, The Devil’s Rejects) and the late, great Richard Lynch (Zombie’s Halloween, Laid to Rest).
(Check out our recent interview with Michael Berryman HERE).
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..
