A very impressive, but more conventional trailer has arrived for Rob Zombie’s latest horror masterpiece, The Lords of Salem. Also with it comes a bright, shiny new yellow coloured poster and a new US release date of 19th April 2013.

The first, operatic trailer was mesmerizing in its imagery and dark and delicious atmosphere, while today’s trailer plays out with a lot more plot building and much more in the way of a ‘normal’ trailer. Included in this green-band trailer is still plenty of creepy imagery and a wonderful, brooding soundtrack. There is also much more time spent with the characters of the film, especially Sheri Moon Zombie taking up most of the screentime and flaunting her looks. I must say this trailer has got me even more excited than the one before it, and I cannot wait!

Synopsis:

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.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
