I did warn you dear readers that any news on Rob Zombie’s new film, The Lords of Salem, would be posted here. I can barely contain my excitement, and the official plot was released today, and even though we knew most of the story already, we did not know exactly how the Witches from Salem were released. Here in the new plot details we find out about how a mysterious box arrives with a record in it for the local radio DJ’s to play. Then another arrives and then they are asked to play a gig, which then releases the Witches hellbent on revenge after being tortured and murdered by the Lords of Salem hundreds of years ago. Please, read on…
“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.“
