Anchor Bay Home Entertainment will bring to Blu-ray Rob Zombie's The Lords of Salem (2012), starring Sheri Moon Zombie, Bruce Davison, Jeff Daniel Phillips, and meg Foster. The release will be available for purchase on line and in stores across the nation on September 3rd.
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?
This was my most anticipated horror film this year only to not have it open in Montreal so I still haven't seen it. I'm one of the few who loved Halloween II and RZ's Devil's Rejects kicks all kinds of asses. I'll be blind-buying Lords on Day One. Disappointed that it's only coming out in September when it seems the rest of the world is getting it in July...
Is the blonde in this, who seems to be in all Zombie's films, his wife, sister, or something? Just wondering what the relation is, since they work together so much, and seemingly exclusively, as I can't recall seeing her in anything but Zombie's films.
Zombies flicks require a special kind of insanity to enjoy. Sadly I actually enjoyed two of them - Halloween and Rejects - so I might be a bit disturbed myself. And, while 1000 Corpses wasn't my cup, I could appreciate what he did there the second time around. After only one viewing, Halloween 2 still seems rather pointless though, but I plan on giving it another go some October.
The trailer for Salem is intriguing, sort of reminds me of some of the Euro-horror trailers of yesteryear. Hopefully the actual story will proove much more coherent.
@MoulinBlu and Eagles612, Sheri Moon Zombie is Rob's wife.
I'd like Lords of Salem to be good, but every film of his I've seen has disappointed me, with the exception of The Devil's Rejects. I haven't watched TDR in years, so no telling how I fell about it nowadays.
Lisa Marie, who has been in some Tim Burton films (Ed Wood and Sleepy Hollow, namely), stars in Lords. I'll most-likely hold out for the rental.
That's the one I couldn't remember: Rob Zombie. Add him to the list of hack "directors" (along with Zack Snyder and Michael Bay) who deserve to be expunged from history. At least Tony Scott had the good sense to jump off a bridge. You next, Rob.
Damn, I really was looking forward to this. I enjoyed House and Rejects but he lost me with H1 & H2. Lords looked promising but unfortunately for me, It didn't deliver. Def worth a watch though for anyone who hasn't seen it. It's a fun little piece of cinema to discuss with those who like or dislike the film.
@CandyStalker, let's keep this a bit in perspective. Rob Zombie is a filmmaker, he's not a terrorist trying to fuck up our everyday lifestyles, and he is not Hitler. Not saying that you called him a terrorist, or Hitler, but the two that I mentioned are/were people commonly wished dead. While I do not enjoy the majority of Zombie's films, I would not wish for him to jump off a bridge just to keep from seeing any of his films ever again. I would just choose not to watch them.
As far as I know, I've never read any of your other posts, but if they happen to be in the vein of the one you posted above, it could be said you are a hack as far as "posters" on Blu-ray.com are concerned. While that may or may not be true, I would never wish you to jump off a bridge just so I don't have to be subjected to your messages any longer.
Hopefully, you understand where I'm coming from with this message.
