The Lords of Salem [2013]

Plot Summary

A Salem, MA, radio DJ receives a mysterious record that unleashes a diabolical force of evil in this slow-burn shocker written and directed by Rob Zombie, and produced by Paranormal Activity’s Oren Peli. Back in 1696, Reverend Jonathan Hawthorne (Andrew Prine) condemned a coven of witches led by Margaret Morgan (Meg Foster) to death, burning them without remorse in the woods surrounding Salem. Just over 300 years later, the small town has become a beacon for anyone interested in the supernatural. Heidi Hawthorne (Sheri Moon Zombie), Herman “Whitey” Salvador (Jeffrey Daniel Phillips) and Herman Jackson (Ken Foree) are the hosts of a popular Salem radio show with a playful occult slant. One day, after interviewing noted author Francis Matthias (Bruce Davison) on the air, Heidi receives a package containing a record from a band named the Lords. The following day, when Heidi plays the record on the airwaves, a strange spell falls over the locals.

Later, as the Lords announce they will be performing a concert in town and the typically carefree Heidi grows increasingly withdrawn, Matthias senses that the sins of the past may be returning to haunt Salem. And he couldn’t be more right — something wicked has returned to this cursed town, and with each day that passes, Heidi slips ever deeper into its sinister grasp. Patricia Quinn, Dee Wallace, Michael Berryman, and Sid Haig co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    • The film has only just picked up a distributor so we don’t have a date for it coming out just yet, but having a distributor on board means things are apace now.

  13. Can’t wait to see this! I’m still waiting for Rob to dissapoint me with one of his films…but I don’t think that is every going to happen. Glad to see Sid Haig is in the cast! Just watched Spider Baby again for the first time in a long time and was thinking Sid was due for anther movie. Can’t wait to paint Sid for Zombilly Ray’s Horror and Hod Rods show in Tucson next year. Sids gonna be there and we are both going to Autograph it and auction it off for the Wounded Warriors Charity. (Sid if you are reading this…hopefully Zombilly Ray has had a chance to talk to you about this….

    I so can not wait to experience this movie. I have always enjoyed Rob’s music/movies and always will. I love his style and his I don’t give a shit if the “Big Wigs” like it or not attitude. I have nothing but respect for the man, or anyone for that matter who chooses to be who they are and not who everyone else wants them to be. I will always check out his work because of this. I love the fact you never really know what to expect with his films. It gives me a rush every time you watch something new by Rob, and I can’t wait to experience that rush again with this new film.

    Any movie by Rob keeps calling you back, the more you watch it the more you like it. Most originality in my mind and much respect. I really enjoy your creativity, and you dont make anything to please ayone you make it how you see it and if you like it great if not f%$k you…thats what I love about you and thats what made me a fan of your music/movies and will continue to do so. I’ve always been a huge fan of horror films and favorite time has always been halloween so your music and films have always spoken to me. Your #1, whatever it is your hands touch…keep it up. Long Live Zombie.
