Hitting limited theaters on April 19th is Rob Zombie’s latest bizarre trip into the world of horror with The Lords of Salem. Anchor Bay has released the official trailer for the film and it is much better than the boot-leggy version we got months ago. The newest trailer is absolutely jarring and is a quick reminder that this isn’t your typical trip into the horror genre as Zombie seems to have created his most mature film to date. After its premier at TIFF this year the reviews came in very mixed to say the least. It seems that there was absolutely no middle ground — it was either loved or hated which is exactly the kind of response I would expect from a Rob Zombie film. And after seeing the first official trailer, it’s safe to say that I’m even more excited to see what The Lords of Salem has in store.
“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?”
