Anchor Bay Films has released a new trailer and poster for Rob Zombie's upcoming crazy looking movie The Lords of Salem. I'm not the biggest fan of Zombie's previous films, but this one looks interesting. I've also heard good things about it, so I'm willing to go in with an open mind. From what I've seen in the trailer, there's some really creepy, cool visuals--ya gotta love the eerie Satan horror vibe. It looks like it could be Rosemary's Baby on Satan steroids.
The movie stars Sheri Moon Zombie, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Ken Foree, Bruce Davison, Dee Wallace, Meg Foster, Maria Conchita Alonso, Barbara Crampton, Michael Shamus Wiles, Ernest Thomas, and Patricia Quinn. Here's the official synopsis...
Heidi Hawthorne, a blonde rock chick, DJs at the 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.
The Lords of Salem will get a limited theatrical release on April 26th. Are you a fan of Zombie's films, and does this look like a horror movie you'd enjoy watching?
