Maria Conchita Alonso Supports Her Hubby in The Lords of Salem
Another day, another addition to the cast of Rob Zombie's latest film, The Lords of Salem. The latest chica to join the ghoulish festivities has quite the resume under her belt including The Running Man, Predator 2 and Colors (great, now that Ice-T song is stuck in our heads). Read on for the goods on just who the lovely Maria Conchita Alonso will be playing!
According to Zombie on Facebook ...
"Miss Venezuela moves to Salem. MARIA CONCHITA ALONSO has joined the cast of THE LORDS OF SALEM! Maria takes on the role of Alice Matthias, wife of Salem author Francis (Bruce Dern) Matthias. Should Francis have listened to his wife and minded his own business? You decide."
She joins the previously announced Richard Lynch as the film's protagonist, "Reverend John Hawthorne"; Lisa Marie who plays "Priscilla Reed", a woman who gives her all to support "the cause of the coven"; Billy Drago as "Judge Samuel Mather," a key player in the history of the Lords; Dee Wallace as "Sonny," a self-help guru; 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. Zombie's guitarist John 5 is set to handle the score.
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.
