The Lords of Salem

(2013)

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?

EXCLUSIVE: Rob Zombie Talks Cult Classics, the State of Horror and ‘The Lords of Salem’!

The summer movie season is officially over and the fall awards season has yet to kick into full gear, so we, as film fans, are stuck in a weird sort of limbo that consists of last month's leftovers and B grade schlock at the Cineplex this weekend. If you can't muster up the energy needed to see Vin Diesel in the Drive-In classic-to-be Riddick, you could instead crank up the AC, grab any beverage of choice, and select The Lords of Salem on Blu-ray or DVD. Even better, it's also available on VOD, which just takes a couple of clicks on the remote to enjoy!

Released in the spring to bewildered stares and mostly slack-jawed amazement, now is the prefect time to either see The Lords of Salem for the first time, or revisit its weird and wonderfully astute ways of creeping out even the most hardcore gore hound. Its one of director Rob Zombie's best efforts to date, and as it makes its way home, its sure to collect a strong cult following yet unprepared for how well this thriller works its way past the skin and deep into your brain. Its like the best kind of album, it only gets better with each new listen.

After director Rob Zombie revisited Haddonfield in the 2007 remake Halloween and its 2009 sequel Halloween II, the filmmaker decided to explore an idea he had in between the Halloween movies about a radio DJ in Salem, Massachussets. After teaming up with producer Jason Blum (Sinister, Paranormal Activity), The Lords of Salem began to take shape. The writer-director's wife Sheri Moon Zombie starred as the DJ, Heidi Hawthorne, who receives a strange audio recording that triggers violent flashbacks to the town's violent past. I recently had the chance to speak with Sheri Moon Zombie over the phone about this thriller, arriving on Blu-ray and DVD September 3 from Anchor Bay Home Entertainment. Here's what she had to say.

I read that Rob had the idea for this between the two Halloween, but there was a a song he did in 2006 with the same name. Was there any kind of correlation between the two, or was he just inspired by the title?
