TIFF 2012: New Lords of Salem One-Sheet Sporting Sheri Moon and Her Otis Complex

We're as excited as can be to see a new and original film from Rob Zombie, and at this year's TIFF we'll be getting just that when The Lords of Salem makes its debut. We just wish one of Sheri's looks in the flick didn't remind us so much of Otis from the end of House of 1000 Corpses.

The Lords of Salem stars Barbara Crampton as Virginia Cable, a camera operator for a local kid's show at Salem Public Access TV called "Lobster Joe's Fishy Fun Show"; Brandon Cruz as Ted Delta, a local Salem drug counselor; Michael Shamus Wiles as Jarrett Perkins, owner of Salem's Engine House Pizza; Michael Berryman as Virgil Magnus, 50% of a well-known witch hunting duo called "The Brothers"; Sid Haig as Dean Magnus, the other half of "The Brothers"; Christopher Knight as Keith Williams, aka Lobster Joe, the host of "Lobster Joe's Fishy Fun Show", a staple of local Salem television; Patricia Quinn as Megan, the town's palm reader; Judy Geeson as Lacy Doyle, owner and landlady of Heidi Hawthorne's apartment; Ken Foree as Herman Jackson, one third of The Big H Radio Team; 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 Davison as Francis Matthias, author of the book Satan's Last Stand - The Truth About The Salem Witch Trials; Maria Conchita Alonso as Francis' wife, Alice Matthias; 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; Meg Foster as Margaret Morgan, the leader of a secret coven of witches in Salem; Ernest Thomas, as Chip "Freakshow" McDonald, the station manager at Salem's #1 rock station; and Sheri Moon Zombie as Heidi, the final third of The Big H Team.

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.

I wish this banjo-playing shitbag would just concentrate on making shitty music so that I didn't have to see all the headline-grabbing over-marketing for his shitty movies on film sites.

Oh look, a penis on his blue sweater. Is this Rob Zombie's way of saying 'fuck you'? Didn't he already do that with Halloween 2?

Eh. Who knows guys. I'm excited for this one, though I agree Zombie is very one-note in his characterization.

You know we don't see nearly enough of Sheri Moon in Rob Zombie movies.
