Rob Zombie Returns With The Lords of Salem
Rob Zombie’s latest movie, The Lords of Salem, has been announced.
It’s being billed as his most ambitious and accomplished work to date and a huge departure from his previous movies, such as The Devil’s Rejects and Halloween. The Lords Of Salem is about a former drug user, Heidi, who’s now clean and works as a rock DJ at the local radio station along with fellow DJs, Herman Whitey Salvador and Herman Jackson. Following one of their regular evening shows, Heidi receives a square wooden box containing a vinyl record, the only indication as to its origin is a note proclaiming “A gift from the Lords”. Assuming it is merely a PR stunt by an ambitious band, Heidi gives the record a spin and immediately begins to experience bizarre flashbacks to a past, long-forgotten trauma triggered by the haunting sounds contained on the record.
The Lords of Salem is out in select UK cinemas on 19 April 2013, plus Rob Zombie’s new album (with one of the oddest titles ever) Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor is also out on 22 April 2013.
