It seems like we have been wondering when Rob Zombie’s The Lords of Salem would ever be released. Now we have the answer. Anchor Bay, who bought the rights to The Lords of Salem, has announced a theatrical release date of April 26, 2013 for Zombie’s latest feature film. I know that I am hyper-excited for this one. Zombie has a visual flare that is not rivaled by too many directors (past or present).
In other news, Rob Zombie has also teamed up with award-winning horror author B.K. Evenson (Aliens: No Exit, Dead Space: Martyr, Dead Space: Catalyst) who will author the official movie tie-in book.
The book will be released in March 12, 2013 and promises to plunge readers into a nightmarish world where the sins of Salem are paid for in todayâ€™s blood. Zombie says â€œThe book offers a different experience from the film since it can obviously go into much more detail. The book and the film really complement each other.â€
The book will be published by Grand Central Publishing and their executive editor Ben Greenberg is excited about the release too; â€œAs a horror junkie and a fan of Robâ€™s work, I am thrilled that GCP will be publishing this novel,â€ said Greenberg. â€œTHE LORDS OF SALEM is Robâ€™s first original horror story since the great THE DEVILâ€™S REJECTS, and it delivers exactly what his fans have been waiting for.â€
