It’s been a while since we’ve gotten any images or news about Rob Zombie’s upcoming, THE LORDS OF SALEM. Recently Zombie updated us on his website about where the project stands:
“For those of you wondering if ‘The Lords Of Salem’ is finished, the answer is no. I had to take a break due to the Megadeth tour and a few other things. I will be returning to work on the film in July to finish it up.”
Well that clears that up, I guess. But are we getting a Fall 2012 release with it, or what?? Zombie did a video interview recently with Artisan News (see below) that may provide some answers. But first check out the plot crunch:
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.
Here’s the interview:
