Tim Burton’s Vampira Joins Coven Cause in ‘Lords of Salem’

Shooting next week, Rob Zombie has added Lisa Marie to the growing cast of The Lords of Salem.

She will portray “Priscilla Reed”, a woman who gives her all to support “the cause of the coven” in merry old Salem.

Lisa hasn’t appeared on screen since 2001 in Tim Buron’s remake of Planet of the Apes. Before that fans obviously remember her from such films as Mars Attacks! Sleepy Hollow and of course her turn as “Vamipra” in Ed Wood.

She joins Meg Foster, Ernest Thomas, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Torsten Voges, Bruce Dern, Sheri Moon Zombie, Dee Wallace, Billy Drago and Richard Lynch in the film from the producing team behind Insidious and Paranormal Activity.

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.
