With a giant cast that already includes Meg Foster, Barbara Crampton, Ernest Thomas, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Torsten Voges, Bruce Davidson, Sheri Moon Zombie, Dee Wallace, Billy Drago, Richard Lynch, Lisa Marie, Maria Conchita Alonso and Ken Foree, Rob Zombie is adding a little more childhood nostalgia to The Lords of Salem, which is currently shooting.
“Pork chops and applesauce head to Salem! What the fuck does that mean? Of course it means Christopher Knight has joined our group. Chris plays Keith Williams aka Lobster Joe the host of Lobster Joe’s Fishy Fun Show a staple of local Salem television.
Chris has appeared in everything from Happy Days and Gunsmoke to The Bionic Woman and Chips. But we all know Chris best as Peter Brady from the legendary show THE BRADY BUNCH.”
If Zombie is really trying to go nuts with demons this time around and wants to mine the wholesome family programming of his youth, he should let H.R. Pufnstuf get in on the action.
“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.”
