Rob Zombie’s new flick, The Lords of Salem, was recently announced to be part of the Midnighter category of the SXSW Film Festival for 2013. True to both the Midnighter category and Rob Zombie himself, it is a horror film centering on Salem, Massachusetts. Considering the setting of the film, it involves Satan and a suspicious, seemingly vacant apartment #5.
The film stars Sheri Moon Zombie, Bruce Davidson, Jeffrey Daniel Phillips, Ken Foree, Patricia Quinn, Dee Wallace, Maria Conchita Alonso, Judy Geeson, Meg Foster, and Griffin Boice. Rob Zombie wrote and directed the film.
“From the singular mind of horror maestro Rob Zombie comes a chilling plunge into a nightmare world where evil runs in the blood. The Lords of Salem tells the tale of Heidi (Sheri Moon Zombie), a radio station DJ living in Salem, Massachusetts, who receives a strange wooden box containing a record, a “gift from the Lords.” Heidi listens, and the bizarre sounds within the grooves immediately trigger flashbacks of the town’s violent past. Is Heidi going mad, or are the “Lords of Salem” returning for revenge on modern-day Salem?”
The Lords of Salem plays at the SXSW Film Festival March 8 – 16, 2013 and is in theatres April 19, 2013.
