I cannot believe that the wait it almost over, and Rob Zombie’s Lords of Salem will be with us in just two weeks. I can barely contain my excitement, but I must try.
It doesn’t help when a new clip arrives to once again show off some truly gorgeous camerawork and a stunning setting matched with some phenomenal classical music. The latest clip features Sheri Moon Zombie’s Heidi approaching an altar, but of you look closely, that thing at the altar in anything but holy. What is most impressive here though is the style and design of the clip, the classical look, the creepy tone and the use of powerful classical music to give the whole moment an added kick. If this is any indication to what the rest of the film is like, then we are in for one hell of a treat!

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.
