You have to hand it Rob Zombie. When it comes to creating alternate worlds within his films, he takes that shit seriously! Case in point: the debut of artwork for film-within-the-film Frankenstein Versus The Witchfinder from his upcoming Lords of Salem. Along with that we also have a few behind-the-scenes peeks at what’s been transpiring on the set these past 19 days.

First up is FRANKENSTEIN VS THE WITCHFINDER! Coming Soon to a theater near you! That is if you live in Salem, MA! This amazing lost classic starring Udo Kier, Clint Howard, Daniel Roebuck and Camille Keaton is being screening at the WIQZ Freak-Fest. Don’t miss it. One night only!

Check out the artwork below along with two BTS photos. The first is from Day 18. As Zombie explains, “It takes a lot of people to make a film happen so let’s here [sic] it for the gang behind the cameras. This group has been kicking hardcore ass since day one!” Below that is a still of the director with his D.P. Brandon Trost.

Synopsis
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.
