Rob Zombie’s The Lords of Salem Trailer

Rob Zombie's The Lords of Salem TrailerThe Lords of Salem was recently picked up for distribution by Anchor Bay, which is expected to release it sometime in 2013. It will be interesting to see what kind of release it gets, given Anchor Bay’s theatrical releases are normally very limited in scope (less than 100 screens), followed by a home video release shortly thereafter. You have to think, though, that the company would want to exploit Zombie’s name for a wider theatrical run.

Heidi, a radio station DJ, receives a wooden box containing a vinyl record, “a gift from the Lords.” She assumes it’s from a band trying to promote themselves. Heidi and others listen but unbeknownst to them, the bizarre sounds within the grooves immediately trigger flashbacks of Salem’s violent past. Is Heidi going mad or are the Lords of Salem returning for revenge on modern day Salem?
