The Lords of Salem
Opens in UK cinemas 19 Apr 2013
From the producers of “Paranormal Activity” and “Insidious” comes writer-director Rob Zombie’s most highly anticipated shocker to date – a brilliantly envisioned and haunting tale of witchcraft and Satanism.
What's it all about?
A former drug user, Heidi is now clean and works as a rock DJ at the local radio station along with fellow DJs, Herman Whitey Salvador and Herman Jackson. Following one of their regular evening shows, Heidi receives a square wooden box containing a vinyl record, the only indication as to its origin is a note proclaiming “A gift from the Lords”. Assuming it is merely a PR stunt by an ambitious band, Heidi gives the record a spin and immediately begins to experience bizarre flashbacks to a past, long-forgotten trauma triggered by the haunting sounds contained on the record.
What does Fangoria say about it?
“A psychological horror treat that burrows into the brain and tickles with ideas. This is satanic horror done right, carefully twisting the knife until the big finale without sacrificing scares along the way.”
