I know Matt is away on holiday and he loves bringing you the news on Rob Zombie’s impending film Lords of Salem, so I suppose I better bring you the news that a new actor has joined the fold and that he is one that is well known for starring in Zombies’s film and that is of course Jeff Daniel Phillips who appeared in H2.
We are being told that Daniels will play Herman “Whitey” Salvador, one third of “The Big H Team” at WIQZ – Salem’s Rock Radio.
The plot of Lords Of Salem goes like this:
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 theLords’ 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.
Meg Foster and Ernest Thomas have recently signed up for the project.
No doubt Matt will bring you more news on this when it happens!
