I was lucky enough to catch the World Premiere of Rob Zombie’s The Lords of Salem, at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival. To my surprise, Writer/director Rob Zombie’s newest vision of horror, represents a major step forward for the filmmaker. The film cracked my list of best horror films of 2012, and I’d say it is his best film to date.
The first full trailer has now been released, and they’ve done a fine job in marketing the film. Check out the trailer, and read my spoiler free review.
The Lords of Salem opens on April 19.[quote by=”Synopsis”]
From the singular mind of horror maestro Rob Zombie comes a chilling plunge into a nightmare world where evil runs in the blood. The Lords of Salem tells the tale of Heidi (Sheri Moon Zombie), a radio station DJ living in Salem, Massachusetts, who receives a strange wooden box containing a record, a “gift from the Lords.” Heidi listens, and the bizarre sounds within the grooves immediately trigger flashbacks of the town’s violent past. Is Heidi going mad, or are the “Lords of Salem” returning for revenge on modern-day Salem?[/quote]
