An official trailer for the upcoming Rob Zombie horror The Lords of Salem has been released online. The movie keeps Zombie in the genre he loves, while also moving him away from the Halloween franchise some horror connoisseurs were not too fond of.
This new movie takes us to Salem, Massachusetts, setting of the Salem Witch Trials, where that dark and evil past might not be as buried as was once thought.
You can read a synopsis and check out the new trailer for The Lords of Salem below now.
From the singular mind of horror maestro Rob Zombie comes a chilling plunge into a nightmare world where evil runs in the blood. The Lords of Salem tells the tale of Heidi (Sheri Moon Zombie), a radio station DJ living in Salem, Massachusetts, who receives a strange wooden box containing a record, a “gift from the Lords.” Heidi listens, and the bizarre sounds within the grooves immediately trigger flashbacks of the town’s violent past. Is Heidi going mad, or are the “Lords of Salem” returning for revenge on modern-day Salem?
The Lords of Salem also stars Bruce Davidson, Jeffrey Daniel Phillips, Ken Foree, Patricia Quinn, Dee Wallace, Maria Conchita Alonso, Judy Gleeson, Meg Foster, and Griffin Boice. It will be released on April 19, 2013.
