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as the Lords announce they will be performing a concert in town and the typically carefree Heidi grows increasingly withdrawn, Matthias senses that the sins of the past may be returning to haunt Salem.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

  5. For everyone asking for a release date – patience is a virtue, movie making is not as simple as movie made, film comes out. You can read Robs statement here: http://robzombie.com/2012/10/the-lords-of-salem-trailer-exclusively-at-deadline/

    “For those of you confused and or pissed that the LORDS is not coming out asap. Well, I will try and explain it. Lords only just got distribution recently, so it was impossible to lock in theaters to show it. Studios book the screens and pick their release dates far in advance of the release. We did not have that luxury on this project due to the manner in which we decided to make it.

    We are releasing it as soon as screens are available to show it. Simple as that.”

  21. I’m going to see it no matter what, but is the film getting a theatrical release? I know that Anchor Bay is handling distribution, but I didn’t know if it will be straight-to-dvd or not. If it is straight-to-dvd, then fuck the majors, cause they don’t know what originality is.
