If you are skeptical about veteran rocker Rob Zombie‘s talents as a horror filmmaker you might be pleasantly surprised with his latest twisted horror creation, The Lords of Salem, starring Sheri Moon Zombie as Heidi.
I’m also not the biggest fun of the witchcraft horror movies, or Zombie’s previous films either, but The Lords of Salem is finally getting set to have a theatrical release and the second trailer has arrived online, a bit more conventional than the previously released one, but still skewed toward Zombie fans.
The flick centers on a small radio station DJ, Heidi who receives a musical gift that appears to have awoken a powerful coven of witches, so upon listening to the vinyl she begins to have strange flashbacks and questions if the Lords of Salem are coming back to take their revenge.
Also starring Clint Howard, Bruce Davison, Sid Haig, Jeffrey Daniel Phillips, Ken Foree, Patricia Quinn, Dee Wallace, Maria Conchita Alonso, Judy Gleeson, Meg Foster, and Griffin Boice, the film opens April 19th, 2013.

Here’s the 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?
‘Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing.’
