My buddy just rang me with the “official” shooting synopsis for The Lords of Salem, Rob Zombie’s latest horror film that comes from Haunted Pictures producers Jason Blum, Steven Schneider, and Oren Peli. Zombie regular Andy Gould also produces as does Brian-Kavanaugh-Jones. Shooting begins this May in Massachusetts.
Anyways, here’s the details he dictated to be via phone: “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.”
Haunted Pictures, which was berthed out of the success of Paranormal Activity, will see the release of Insidious tomorrow.
