Rob Zombie has announced where and when you’ll be able to see the very first trailer for The Lords of Salem, his latest horror effort which wrapped up post-production not long ago.
Zombie has been at work on the film for a bit now for producers Jason Blum, Andy Gould and Oren Peli. Sheri Moon Zombie, Meg Foster, Ernest Thomas, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Torsten Voges, Bruce Davison, Billy Drago, Richard Lynch, Lisa Marie, Maria Conchita Alonso, Ken Foree, Barbara Crampton, Michael Berryman, Sid Haig, Judy Geeson, Sheri Moon Zombie and Patricia Quinn star.
Until now, all we have seen is a handful of set photos and viral images. Tomorrow night, however, the first footage will be revealed.
RobZombie.com says the trailer will play tomorrow (Friday, May 11th) to those attending the Rob Zombie/Megadeth show at the PNC Bank Arts Center in New Jersey. I’m sure, no doubt, we’ll be seeing camera phone bootlegs hitting YouTube come Saturday morning.
In the film, Sheri Moon plays Heidi, a blond rock chick, DJs at a local radio station, and together with the two Hermans (Whitey and Munster) forms part of the “Big H Radio Team.”
A mysterious wooden box containing a vinyl record arrives for Heidi, a gift of the Lords. She assumes it’s a rock band on a mission to spread to spread their word. As Heidi and Whitey play the Lord’s record, it starts to play backwards, and Heidi experiences a flashback to a past trauma.
Later, White plays the Lord’s record, dubbing them the Lords of Salem, and to his surprise, the record plays normally and is a massive hit with his listeners.
The arrival of another wooden box from the Lords presents the Big H team with free tickets, posters and records to host a gig in Salem. Soon, Heidi and her cohorts are far from the rock spectacle they’re expecting. The original Lords or Salem are returning and they’re out for blood.
The Lords of Salem does not have a release date yet.
