If there is one other horror film out there that is hitting the headlines like Human Centipede 2 then that is The Lords Of Salem, which seems to be on the HCF news headlines everyday. The new horror by Rob Zombie is creating a huge buzz among his devotees not including our Matt and many more in the team who love his work, and by now you probably have read all the news we can give you on this, well apart from this new one because yet another new addition has joined the team.
The Untouchables star Billy Drago has been confirmed to have bagged a role in the new film, joining the likes of announced Dee Wallace, Bruce Dern,Torsten Voges, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Meg Foster, Ernest Thomas and of course the usual face of Sheri Moon Zombie.
“Billy [Drago] takes on the role of Judge Samuel Mather a key player in the history of the Lords,” says Zombie. “Billy is best known for his roles in such films as Pale Rider, Freeway, The Hills Have Eyes (2006) and The Untouchables. In addition to film he has also appeared in numerous TV show including: “Hill Street Blues”, “T.J. Hooker”, “The Adventures of Brisco County Jr”. and “Walker, Texas Ranger”.”
Such a huge cast and for me personally I am glad Zombie is doing something new because I was never a fan of his Halloween films.
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.
