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as the Lords announce they will be performing a concert in town and the typically carefree Heidi grows increasingly withdrawn, Matthias senses that the sins of the past may be returning to haunt Salem.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

    i can’t wait to see this movie:) i have listened to your music my whole life and when you came out with House of 1000 Corspes i knew it was going to be weird amazing and freaky I was right I loved every second of it. Even tho clowns scare the piss outta me Capt. Spaldings was the best expecially in Devils Rejects. When I found out Sherri Moon was going to be the mother in Halloween I knew in some sick twisted way I wanted to be a mother just like her My daughter is now 8yrs old and because of your make of Halloween she isnt scared and hasn’t been Halloween Devils rejects and House of 1000 Courpses have become her favorite movies as well Although she hasnt seen the second Halloween, which in my opinion You should make more of them, I think I will actually take her to see this new one it sounds good and I hope to be seeing Mrs.Sherri Moon and all the other characters from your other movies <3 you guys
