Our friends at Rolling Stone Magazine have an exclusive clip available to watch on their site from Rob Zombie’s forthcoming movie, The Lords of Salem. In this clip Heidi meets one of the Lords in an eerie, grandiose scene. As Zombie explains: “This is a key moment in the film where our main character, Heidi Hawthorne, finally confronts the dreaded apartment five to meet the bizarre master of her nightmares. It is one of my favorite scenes in the film and wasn’t even in the original script.”

Rob Zombie recalls standing in his back yard on the phone with John 5, the guitarist in his rock band, humming ideas back and forth to get that perfect passage of music for a film involving a 300-year-old witches’ coven, Beelzebub and a blasphemous modern-day rock station. (more…)
