No Rest for the Wicked on the Set of Rob Zombie's The Lords of Salem
Know who else is working on Thanksgiving Day? Rob Zombie. The rocker turned filmmaker just released a holiday greeting from the set of his film-within-a-film in The Lords of Salem entitled Frankenstein Versus The Witchfinder, and we have it for you right here.
Frankenstein Versus The Witchfinder was "a lost classic being screening at the WIQZ Freak-Fest" within the reality Zombie has created for The Lords of Salem. The flick stars:
UDO KEIR as Matthew Hopkins aka Klaus the Reaper (the hero)
CLINT HOWARD as Carlo Caravaggio (the dwarf)
DAN ROEBUCK as The Frankenstein Monster (the creature)
CAMILLE KEATON as Doris Von Fux (the wench)
Jason Blum, Steven Schneider, and Oren Peli of Haunted Pictures are producing The Lords of Salem 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.
