Here is the second trailer for Rob Zombie’s The Lords of Salem. It still doesn’t wow me, then again none of Zombie’s film have provided true horrors. I know that he has a “niche” audience, but this looks like a straight to video picture.
The Plot: A Salem radio DJ receives a mysterious record that unleashes a diabolical force of evil on the town where a coven of witches were once burned alive in this slow-burn shocker written and directed by Rob Zombie, and produced by Paranormal Activity's Oren Peli. Back in 1692, Reverend Jonathan Hawthorne condemned a coven of witches led by Margaret Morgan (Meg Foster) to death, slaying them without remorse in the woods surrounding Salem. Just over 300 years later, the small town has become a beacon for anyone interested in the supernatural. Every night, Heidi (Sheri Moon-Zombie) and her two co-hosts (Ken Foree and Jeffrey Daniel Phillips) take to the airwaves for a popular radio show with a playful occult slant, and one day after interviewing noted author Francis Matthias (Bruce Davison) she receives a package containing a record from a band named The Lords. The following day, when Heidi impulsively plays the record on the airwaves, a strange spell falls over the locals. Later, as The Lords announce they will be performing a concert in town and the typically carefree Heidi grows increasingly withdrawn, Matthias senses that the sins of the past may be returning to haunt Salem. And he couldn't be more right. Something wicked has returned to this cursed town, and with each day that passes, Heidi slips ever deeper into its malevolent grasp (from Fandango).
The film stars Sheri Moon Zombie, Bruce Davison, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Ken Foree, Patricia Quinn, Dee Wallace and Judy Geeson.
