With filming completed, post-production wrapped up and a premiere at this year’s TIFF‘s, Anchor Bay who brought the distribution rights to the movie, have finally announced the day the film will hit theaters in the US: April 26 2013.
On top of that Rob Zombie has teamed up with multiple-award-winning horror author B.K. Evenson. to pen the official movie tie-in book for the film. To see the cover and more details including how to PRE-order
It’s been teased by Rob Zombie at shows on his tours. It’s been requested a million times or more and now finally it is here. The trailer for The Lords of Salem is the first thing you will see when you come to robzombie.com. You can also view it at the official Rob Zombie You Tube channel. The sinister trailer features stars Sheri Moon Zombie, Pat Quinn, Dee Wallace and more in the tale of a local DJ who stumbles across a record which awakens a horror long thought dead. The film has recently been acquired by Anchor Bay Films and will be released in 2013.
Says Rob Zombie on the release timing: “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.”

“The only thing I ever really care about is animals — animal causes. I don’t really care about people that much, but animals I feel like they always need to be protected,” Zombie told Samaritanmag, while in Toronto promoting The Lords of Salem.
It’s not like the filmmaker hasn’t incorporated animal mutilation in his films. Let’s face it — the guy makes horror films. In his remake of Halloween, there is animal mutilation (fake, of course). But in The Lords of Salem, he uses the dog as an interesting device for the lead character, Heidi, played by his wife, Sheri Moon.
Rob Zombie is a massive fan of horror. It’s a part of his music and is the genre he prefers to direct.
With The Lords of Salem premiering last week and gaining a distributor in the form of Anchor Bay, Zombie hopes to take his audience on another trip into what makes him tick. In this video interview he talks to Wired about the movie, his influences and more.

Rob Zombie on Going for Broke With ‘Lords of Salem’ and Why Making a Third ‘Halloween’ Would Be “Masochistic” by Nigel M Smith
Rob Zombie impressed many (ourselves included) with his grisly and demented sophomore effort, “The Devil’s Rejects,” only to betray many admirers of that film with his tepid stab at the “Halloween” franchise. After helming the 2009 sequel to that reboot, new film “The Lords of Salem” (which world premiered in Toronto earlier this week in the Midnight Madness section) finds Zombie back in non-remake mode with a gonzo tale that proves the musician turned filmmaker has lost none of his mojo.
