Make a Date with The Lords of Salem and Dive into a Novelization





Wondering when you're going to get your chance to see Rob Zombie's The Lords of Salem (review)? Well, the mystery is no more as Anchor Bay has delivered a release date, but wait... that's not all!

Make a Date with The Lords of Salem and Dive into a NovelizationAnchor Bay Films will be releasing Rob Zombie’s The Lords Of Salem on April 26th, 2013. However, if you wanna spoil it for yourself before then, the movie will be receiving a novelization co-written by Zombie and B.K. Evenson, which hits on March 12th, 2013. Here's the synopsis for that...

Heidi Hawthorne is a thirty-seven-year-old FM radio DJ and a recovering drug addict. Struggling with her newfound sobriety and creeping depression, Heidi suddenly receives an anonymous gift at the station--a mysteriously shaped wooden box branded with a strange symbol. Inside the box is a promotional record for a band that identifies themselves only as The Lords. There is no other information. She decides to play it on the radio show as a joke, and the moment she does, horrible things begin to happen. The strange music awakens something evil in the town. Soon enough, terrifying murders begin to happen all around Heidi. Who are The Lords? What do they want?

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.

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.

The big difference between you and Rob is he doesn't have to give himself handies.

HELL YEAH!

Will it become a picture book halfway through, or will it actually shed some light on what in the hell was going on in the film?
