While killing time over at Bloody-Disgusting yesterday I happened to come across this: the plot details for Rob Zombie's upcoming 'LORDS OF SALEM.' Not sure what I think about the plot - it seems very 1980's to me...but maybe that's a good thing? It's hard to tell with a director like Zombie - he's a love-him-or-hate-him kind of guy, and I haven't been exactly impressed with his last couple of movies. Anyway - here's the lowdown:
The story is about a local DJ who mistakenly unleashes a hellish curse on the town. 300 years earlier on the very streets of Salem that the townspeople walk on today, innocent folks were rounded up from their homes, convicted of being witches and sentenced to death. The Lords of Salem ran the town with an iron fist, but four witches who were tortured and killed in secrecy vowed that one day they would be back for revenge.
What do you think? Is this one going to rock like a son of a witch - or is this film going to continue the decline Zombie's been on since 'The Devil's Rejects?'
