Rob Zombie's The Lords of Salem gets a creepy new trailer

Oct. 3, 2012by:

Love or hate him, Rob Zombie is a hell of a showman. Not many musicians can make the transition from singer to actor, but to go from singer to director is a unique feat. While I despised HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES, I did love THE DEVIL'S REJECTS. HALLOWEEN was serviceable, but THE LORDS OF SALEM looks like a return to form for Zombie.

THE LORDS OF SALEM was picked up for distribution at the recent Toronto Film Festival. Our own Chris Bumbray gave it a pretty good review and now we get a chance to see some of the footage for ourselves.

Plot: Heidi, a blonde 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 from the Lords". She assumes it's a rock band on a mission to spread their word. As Heidi and Whitey play the Lords' record, it starts to play backwards, and Heidi experiences a flashback to a past trauma. Later Whitey plays the Lords' record, dubbing them the Lords of Salem, and to his surprise, the record plays normally and is a massive hit with 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 find that the gig is far from the rock spectacle they're expecting: The original Lords of Salem are returning, and they're out for BLOOD.

THE LORDS OF SALEM is unique amongst Zombie's films. It looks more fleshed out than any of his prior films. The musical choices in this trailer are the complete opposite of what I was expecting. This looks like one of the more original horror films we have seen in years.

Alongside Sheri Moon Zombie and Judy Geerson, THE LORDS OF SALEM also stars Bruce Davison, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Ken Foree, Patricia Quinn, and Dee Wallace. It is currently set for a 2013 release.

kubrick-esque?

the trailer, by itself, reminds me of Kubrick trailers; the music, the editing, the composition. i really want him to succeed in film because he has talent. i'm just sick of paying for his film school education. and his wife is not hot. or talented. hatehatehate, i know. i wonder how many actors actually would want to work with Zombie?

Nepotism

This has some classic elements (reminiscent of Suspiria) but he really needs to stop casting his wife in these. She's a fairly hot lady and all, but she's had maybe 3 minutes of convincing acting in all of her films total. The visuals look like he's growing but there's still a level of talent that he needs to support that vision.

Ouch! I'll say it...

Yes, I said it. I know that the guy has a brilliance about him in most of what he does. The problem is that the man can't write. His movies would be a lot better if he let someone else act as his scribe. Another thing that bothers me is that he isn't particularly good with actors, or he might have more well rounded characters. Putting your annoying wife in all of your movies, when most of us would prefer she be that chick that doesn't say a word and catches an arrow in the head. I would gladly

I would gladly hold a champagne class high to this guy for being so talented,,,but I would have to empty it's content for homies. Watching his movies bring isn't far from watching an Uwe Boll flick.

I dig it. Every other shot reminds me of a different movie, and while I'm sure I'm off a little about some of the potential inspirations (Wicker Man is a given), it's still fun to imagine what a compilation of all the movies I thought about would be like. And while I'm sure Lords of Salem is a much different beast, I still find the teaser quite entrancing.

Say what you will about the guy but he is one talented and intelligent mo-fo. He takes directing very seriously and his love for film is apparent throughout all his movies.

I'm surprised they chose to show so much, shall we say, spoiler-y stuff as opposed to less aesthetically assured narrative stuff from the earlier half of the film... but either way, that's a damn good trailer and it does give a solid idea of what the film has in store rather than being misleading like many trailers for less accessible films can be.

Pretty but...

Once again Zombie presents a real visual treat...I've always thought that he has a great eye for horror and knows how to make his movies look good. But I fear that once again his writing will be the downfall of the film. I really wish he would just direct someone else's written work because his writing is where he loses me and I end up disliking his films.

Fantastic trailer

now THAT is how you make a teaser trailer. Most of the marketing teams/people working on hollywood productions should take note. A teaser trailer is called that for a reason, and these guys nailed it! Very much lookin forward to this flick. It does seem to be a love/hate flick though based on the early word, just hoping I fall on the 'love' side!

WTF

That wasnt an official trailer was it? It looked like a fanmade video consisting of set pics. Even the centering was off on the synopsis. Hell the one pic was a shot from the Walking Dead, If it was official, I expected something a little more professional. Someone actually got paid for that?
