Salem is a popular town, filled with B-movie stars. Maria Conchita Alonso is the latest to join the cast of Rob Zombie’s The Lords of Salem where she’ll be playing “Alice Matthias”, wife of Salem author Francis (Bruce Dern) Matthias. “Should Francis have listened to his wife and minded his own business?” asks Zombie.
Maria is best known for her roles in the hit films Colors, The Running Man, Moscow on the Hudson, Vampire’s Kiss and Predator 2.
Meg Foster, Ernest Thomas, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Torsten Voges, Sheri Moon Zombie, Dee Wallace, Billy Drago, Richard Lynch and Lisa Marie have also been cast. Shooting begins next week.
“The story is about a local DJ who mistakenly unleashes a hellish curse on the town. 300 years earlier on the very streets of Salem that the townspeople walk on today, innocent folks were rounded up from their homes, convicted of being witches and sentenced to death. The Lords of Salem ran the town with an iron fist, but four witches who were tortured and killed in secrecy vowed that one day they would be back for revenge.”
