While we still wait, impatiently I might add, for the official trailer to arrive for Rob Zombie’s Lords of Salem, for now whatever we can find is good enough. Being one of my most anticipated horrors of the year, I just can’t get enough of it, and I am growing ever more impatient waiting for either a trailer or a release date. We have to wait though, and so hopefully today’s images will help ease your need for all things Zombie. You can see the images at the bottom of this post.

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.
