Rob Zombie on Facebook
More casting news coming in from Rob Zombie in regard to his latest film, The Lords of Salem. Another Halloween star has joined the ranks of the new flick to combat evil witchery in all of its forms.
According to Zombie via his Facebook page, genre favorite Dee Wallace (The Hills Have Eyes, The Stepford Wives, The Howling, E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, Cujo, The Frighteners) plays the role of “Sonny,” a self-help guru. Shooting begins in less than two weeks.
Dee joins Bruce Dern as Francis Matthias, author of the book “Satan’s Last Stand – The Truth About The Salem Witch Trials”; Torsten Voges as Count Gorgann, lead singer of the Norwegian death metal band Leviathan the Fleeing Serpent; Jeff Daniel Phillips as Herman “Whitey” Salvador, one third of “The Big H Team” at WIQZ – Salem’s Rock Radio; Meg Foster as Margaret Morgan, the leader of a secret coven of witches in Salem; Ernest Thomas, who will play Chip “Freakshow” McDonald, the station manager at Salem’s #1 rock station; and Sheri Moon Zombie.
Jason Blum, Steven Schneider, and Oren Peli of Haunted Pictures are producing as well as Zombie regulars Andy Gould and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones.
Heidi, a blonde rock chick, DJs at a local radio station and, together with the two Hermans (Whitey and Munster), forms part of the “Big H Radio Team”.
A mysterious wooden box containing a vinyl record arrives for Heidi, “a gift from the Lords”. She assumes it’s a rock band on a mission to spread their word. As Heidi and Whitey play the Lords’ record, it starts to play backwards, and Heidi experiences a flashback to a past trauma.
Later Whitey plays the Lords’ record, dubbing them the Lords of Salem, and to his surprise, the record plays normally and is a massive hit with listeners.
The arrival of another wooden box from the Lords presents the Big H Team with free tickets, posters and records to host a gig in Salem. Soon Heidi and her cohorts find that the gig is far from the rock spectacle they’re expecting: The original Lords of Salem are returning, and they’re out for BLOOD.
