‘Hills Have Eyes’ Becomes Witch Hunter in ‘Lords of Salem’

And so it continues. The Hills Have Eyes star Michael Berryman is joining The Lords of Salem, which reteams him with The Devil’s Rejects director Rob Zombie.

Michael Berryman is the latest name to join the crew down in merry old Salem as Virgil Magnus, 50% of a well-known witch hunting duo called The Brothers,” says Zombie, who is now on his second week of filming here in Los Angeles.

Berryman has been shocking audiences for over 35 years in films like One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, Deadly Blessing and even Weird Science.

He joins Meg Foster, Ernest Thomas, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Torsten Voges, Bruce Dern, Sheri Moon Zombie, Dee Wallace, Billy Drago, Richard Lynch, Lisa Marie, Maria Conchita Alonso, Ken Foree, Bruce Davidson and Christopher Knight.

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.
