Musician and horror director Rob Zombie released the second horror trailer for his upcoming film, "The Lords of Salem," Monday. The film once again stars his wife, Sheri Moon Zombie as Heidi, a radio station DJ who receives a strange wooden box that contains a record labelled a "gift from the Lords."
Naturally, she presumes it's just some band using a gimmick to promote themselves as they often do. Unfortunately, when the record plays it's bizarre sounds, it doesn't trigger an uncontrollable urge to dance and take ecstasy, but flashbacks of Salem’s violent past.
Is Heidi going crazy... or has someone slipped acid in her drink at the afterparty? You decide.
But judging from the trailer, it looks a bit more demonic than that. The trailer hints at some seriously creepy horror, and as always, stylishly-evil lighting and set design. The male half of the Zombie team has always had an eye for the classic horror aesthetic with a contemporary twist. And given Zombie's love of straight-up horror, we trust this one will be blessedly free of silly humor.
Once again, Zombie has tapped some classic actors of vintage TV and horror films for his casting: includes Bruce Davidson, Jeffrey Daniel Phillips, Ken Foree, Patricia Quinn, Dee Wallace, Maria Conchita Alonso, Judy Gleeson, Meg Foster, and Griffin Boice.
The film opens in limited release April 19.
