The Lords of Salem Director: Rob Zombie Screenwriter: Rob Zombie Cast: Sheri Moon Zombie, Bruce Davison, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Ken Foree, Patricia Quinn, Dee Wallace, Meg Foster
Synopsis:From the singular mind of horror maestro Rob Zombie comes a chilling new nightmare. The Lords of Salem tells the tale of Heidi, a radio station disc jockey living in Salem, Massachusetts, who receives a strange wooden box containing a vinyl record and a note: “A Gift from the Lords.” Heidi listens, and the bizarre sounds within the grooves immediately trigger flashbacks of the town’s violent past. — Anchor Bay Films
Rob Zombie‘s latest film, The Lords of Salem, is a surprisingly understated slow-burn in the vein of Ti West’s House of the Devil. Zombie attempts to build suspense and create unbearable tension before unleashing a truly bizarre, grotesque hex on the film’s main character, Heidi (played by Zombie’s wife, Sheri Moon Zombie).
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.
It still seems like Rob Zombie‘s remake of Halloween just came out in theaters, but believe it or not the teaser trailer for the sequel, H2 has already been released. (Click over to watch it!)
The movie recently had a semi-controversial story making the rounds when it was revealed that the iconic Michael Myers would be without his famous mask for most of the sequel (See: Wait, What? Michael Myers To Be Without Mask For Most Of “˜H2″²?), but the teaser doesn’t look half bad in terms of horror movies. When it comes to Zombie’s movies, I think it’s all pretty straight-forward to begin with — you either dig the man’s style or you don’t. If you do, then you’ll probably find yourself enjoying the teaser trailer, and should check it out below.
From what I can see, there is no official synopsis for the movie out there yet. None that I could find, anyway. I did find a synopsis on ShockYa that may or may not be accurate, so it’s included below. Keep in mind, this doesn’t seem to be official, but judging by the new trailer, it sounds pretty close.
