Rob Zombie’s “The Lords of Salem” has been a long time coming, but today finally brings the first-ever trailer for the horror film from the man who gave us the “Halloween” remakes. Judging by festival reviews, you’re either going to love it, or really, really hate it. Sounds about right with a Rob Zombie movie. In any case, the trailer premiered on the trade site Deadline. Because when you think Rob Zombie horror movies, you think … Deadline? Then again, knowing Zombie’s sense of humor, this might very well be on purpose. I wouldn’t put it pass the guy to do something this wacky just for a laugh.
The Lords of Salem follows a local DJ who mistakenly unleashes a hellish curse on the town. 300 years earlier on the very streets of Salem that the townspeople walk on today, innocent folks 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.
Starring Sheri Moon Zombie, Clint Howard, Sid Haig, Dee Wallace, Udo Kier, Lisa Marie, Maria Conchita Alonso, Meg Foster, Torsten Voges, Bruce Davison, and Billy Drago.
The lords arrive, well, sometime this year. Maybe.
