If there is one horror director who is unafraid of taking major risks in Hollywood, it has to be Rob Zombie, and he proved his level of fearlessness at the recent Toronto International Film Festival premiere of his latest horror film, The Lords of Salem, to a fueled-up crowd! (more…)
From Rob Zombie:
“I woke up this morning to the news that our friend RICHARD LYNCH has passed away. Richard was great to work with and really gave it his all. I will never forget the way he scared the crap out of the kid actors in HALLOWEEN. As soon as I said action! He dove in his role of Principle Chambers at top volume. He will be missed.”
Rob Zombie’s eagerly awaited The Lords of Salem movie has finally finished production. One of it’s stars, Richard Lynch, who plays Reverend John Hawthorne in the film, has recently spoken with celebrated fright mag Fangoria and spoken about his role.

Speaking to us at last weekend’s Chiller Theatre convention in New Jersey, Lynch says, “I play the Reverend John Hawthorne in LORDS OF SALEM. My scenes take place in the 17th century—1695 or so—and he’s one of the ministers overseeing the Salem witch trials. I pass judgment on these would-be witches, and they burn at the stake.
