Horror legend and Rob Zombie favourite, Sid Haig, has just joined in the fun on Rob Zombie’s Lords of Salem. With filming now 17 days in, Zombie announced yesterday on his Facebook page the inclusion of Sid Haig to the cast. This is yet more fantastic casting news, and with the amount of legendary faces now turning up in Zombie’s tale of a cursed town, The Lords of Salem will be worth the ticket price just to see all these veterans together in one film! Here is what Zombie said:
“Hurray for Captain Salem! Yep, Sid Haig has joined the cast of The Lords of Salem as Dean Magnus the other half of the witchfinding duo known as The Brothers.
Sid is best known for cult classics like Spiderbaby, Coffy, Black Mama, White Mama, CC and Company, The Big Dollhouse, The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto, Halloween and of course he is loved world wide as everyone’s favorite killer clown Captain Spaulding in House Of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects.”
Can this cast get any better?

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.
