Rob Zombie Talks Lords of Salem


Shooting to begin in June?

Touting his UK tour, Rob Zombie spoke to The List recently and gave them an update on Lords of Salem, which he’s directing for the Paranormal Activity team.

“I’m going to probably start pre-production in March, hopefully I’ll shoot it around June and that’s the next movie,” Zombie said, “and as far as the next musical project I’m not sure, I’d like to get another album out early next year and hit the road again, on another full tour.”

He goes on to add: “Lords of Salem is an original idea, it’s a new thing, it’s something I’ve been working on. I grew up in Massachusetts, so the Salem Witch Trials was something that figured in big as a kid. Even as a kid they’d take you to the Witch Museum. And that might have something to do with the things that I like. It’s based on historical fact about the Salem Witch Trials and their modern day repercussions, so the film takes place in modern times but it’s a witch movie.”

Okay, so he doesn’t say anything really new. Shock learned earlier this month that the story for his film goes further and tells of, a DJ in Salem who unleashes a horde of demonic minions after she plays a cursed record.
