Rob Zombie has posted a behind-the-scenes image from the workshop of Wayne Toth who created the effects and goodies for The Lords of Salem, which is now in post-production. From what I can make out, these look like musical instruments, which goes with the plot of conjuring “witches” at a club. Maybe the DJ uses these instruments in their performance?
“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. ”
