Eight days ago, new promotional art was released for Rob Zombie’s upcoming THE LORDS OF SALEM. Now, a new poster has been released with a mystery character on it and instead of his former blue color scheme, he’s gone blood red. A much better choice in my opinion, but all of these are going to look great hanging on my wall after the film comes out. I suppose we could say he’s gone through his Picasso-esque Blue Period and has now moved onto his Red Period.
Sheri Moon Zombie, Meg Foster, Ernest Thomas, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Torsten Voges, Bruce Davison, Billy Drago, Richard Lynch, Lisa Marie, Maria Conchita Alonso, Ken Foree, Barbara Crampton, Michael Berryman, Sid Haig, Judy Geeson, and Patricia Quinn star in the film which has yet to secure a release date.
Sheri Moon plays Heidi, a DJ at a local radio station, who, 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 of the Lords. She assumes it’s a rock band on a mission to spread to spread their word. As Heidi and Whitey play the Lord’s record, it starts to play backwards, and Heidi experiences a flashback to a past trauma.
Later, White plays the Lord’s record, dubbing them the Lords of Salem, and to his surprise, the record plays normally and is a massive hit with his 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 are far from the rock spectacle they’re expecting. The original Lords or Salem are returning and they’re out for blood.
300 years earlier on the very streets of Salem that the townspeople walk on today, innocent folk were rounded up from their homes, convicted of being witches and sentenced to death. The Lords of Salem ran the town with an iron fist, but four witches who were tortured and killed in secrecy vowed that one day they would be back for revenge.
And just for the hell of it, here’s another glimpse of the bootlegged teaser trailer at the ROB ZOMBIE/MEGADETH concert:
