Rob Zombie says Lords of Salem is his last horror movie for a long time

A few days ago we heard Rob Zombie lament his experiences on the HALLOWEEN films and also about his aborted take on THE BLOB. Today, the director is making waves of a different sort, saying that he won't be making another horror movie for a good long while. 

In an interview with the Phoenix New Times, Zombie is asked if he ever plans on doing a monster movie (given his fondness for the Universal horror flicks of the 30s). Zombie's response: 

No. I'm not really thinking of doing anything . . . Lords of Salem is my last sort of horror-genre related film for a really long time."

I know some of you won't be shedding any tears over that particular statement...

Also of interest: Zombie talks about his favorite films (from his own catalogue):

I thought Devil's Rejects was my most complete vision at that moment in time. And then I really loved Halloween II; a lot of Halloween fans had a problem with it; but I really loved the movie. And now Lords of Salem I really love.

It's either Devil's Rejects or Lords of Salem, though, I think, because they both came from a really original place that wasn't based on anything that had been created before.

Feel free to discuss Zombie's departure from the horror genre in the comment section below.

Extra Tidbit: Zombie's next is the hockey comedy BROAD STREET BULLIES. You interested?
