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as the Lords announce they will be performing a concert in town and the typically carefree Heidi grows increasingly withdrawn, Matthias senses that the sins of the past may be returning to haunt Salem.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

    remember Halloween 6, Michael killed Jamie and took her baby..didn’t the baby survive at the end, well if another Halloween was to be made i think that it should be about this kid all grown up, messed up in the head a little cause he’s the only link left to Michael, and his mission is to find michael and kill him, he is more crazy than the cop in The Devils Rejects! Its an idea:)

    Scary movies just tend to make me laugh now. Started watching them as a kid and as I grew up I guess I just got used to them so instead of being scared it would just make me think how ridiculous the movie is. Like the remake to Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Couldn’t believe people were so scared of this movie but I couldn’t believe how awful it was. Than Zombie came. Man you took horror films to a new level. When I watch horror flicks I try and put myself in the movie, and when Im in yours I’m so chocked up I can’t even talk. Rob Zombie you are the man and to have such a bad ass wife be in your movies, well her acting speaks for itself. What a team you have. Just keep making movies because you know what your doing. Cant fuckin wait for this to come out. I need to be scared.

    I just have to know if you purposefully destroyed Halloween 2 because you didnt want to do it? Your remake was awesome so that is the only thing I can think of that happened. Halloween was not only the worst horror movie I ever saw it was the worst movie ever made. You ditched the theme music, Loomis is a primadonna dickhead, Myers talks at the end, WHAT THE FUCK WERE YOU THINKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I love every movie you have made they are amazing if I ever had the chance to be in a film I would choose one of yours they keep you on the edge of your seat the whole time unlike some horror movies that have no story line just blood and guts. your movies hold the viewers attention through out the whole film . I was wondering with the way the second Halloween movie ended will there be a third movie?
