[TIFF '12] Priest Gets Mummified On Colorful ‘The Lords of Salem’ Poster Premiere!

The-Lords-of-Salem Poster Rob Zombie

After being announced as part of this September’s epic Toronto International Film Festival Midnight Madness line-up, Bloody has been provided with the official poster for Rob Zombie’s The Lords Of Salem, which will have its world premiere alongside 9 other fantastic sounding genre flicks. The one-sheet is bizarrely colorful for a horror film featuring a mummified priest and the tag: “We’ve been waiting… We’ve always been waiting.

In the film, Heidi, a radio station DJ, receives a wooden box containing a record. Heidi listens and the bizarre sounds within the grooves immediately trigger flashbacks of Salem’s violent past. Is Heidi going mad or are the Lords of Salem returning for revenge on modern day Salem?

The Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 6th-16th.

    i love it that it is so unconventional for a horror film. One of the most anticipated films.

    Fuckin sweet. The mummy priest reminds me of the zombie in The Beyond in the mortuary scene. So sick.

    Wayne Toth has got some serious talent.

    mav07, i agree! Wayne Toth is awesome! i love the fx work on the priest but i’m not loving the poster. all they did was take the picture released yesterday of the desicated priest, crop it and put a blue filter (or whatever) over the pic. with the subject matter in the movie and knowing Rob’s talent with visuals (even if you hated H2, which i loved, you have to admit the cinematography/visuals were very good!) i expect more with this poster. but i’m very excited for the movie itself!
