Rob Zombie Fav Sid Haig Hunts Some Witches in ‘Salem’

Whenever I see the cast of a Rob Zombie movie I think of the scene in BASEketball where the team’s owner has a collection of real-life stars, such as Kareem Abdul-Jabber, who sit in glass cases during business hours…

With day 17 underway, Rob Zombie continues to jam his The Lords of Salem cast with collectible names that you’d see at a local horror convention. This morning he revealed that he will once again be working with genre fav Sid Haig (House of 1,000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects, Halloween) who will play “Dean Magnus”, the other half of the witch finding duo known as “The Brothers.”

Sid is best known for cult classics like Spiderbaby, Coffy, Black Mama, White Mama, CC and Company and The Big Dollhouse.

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, Christopher Knight, Michael Berryman also star.

Hopefully Zombie will release another image from set soon. 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.
