After being announced as part of this September’s epic Toronto International Film Festival Midnight Madness line-up, Rob Zombie’s The Lords Of Salem has released another poster. The film, which will have its world premiere alongside 9 other fantastic sounding genre flicks, hasn’t gone light on the “interesting poster” front. The new one features a quasimodo type guy.

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?

As someone who kinda liked The Devil’s Rejects, I’m hoping that this film is a return to that form. The Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 6th-16th.

    What the(?) I am a huge Zombie fan. Rejects is an awesome flick. I feel his Halloween films were great Rob Zombie films, but failed at being great Halloween films. Double edged sword, eh? This is the one trailer I’ve been dying to see. The few glimpses from the crappy live bootleg intrigued me to no end.

    Also, if you’re a Halloween fan – check out a petition I started to help bring Michael Myers back properly:

    Thanks to those who have already shown their support. The fans shall not be ignored!

    Creepy poster, but it catches your attention.

    After the 2007 Halloween remake, Zombie will always have my support. I’m looking forward to The Lords Of Salem, and I’m expecting some sick and twisted stuff (especially when it comes to violence and gore) from this one. It’s weird, because every Zombie project from now on will feel like a huge step backwards. After all, this is the same guy, who wrote and directed TWO Halloween films.

    Sounds like it might be an interesting movie, not a big fan of his other ones. It will be cool to see what Rob can do with an original idea. This isn’t a remake right??

    I really want this to be good, but after his horrendous Halloween movies I have little faith.

    Small Spoilers Ahead!!!

    Well kids I saw the film last night at TIFF and let me say this, it’s not going to be for everyone. If you like slow-burn movies that rely on visuals over dialogue you’ll be OK. This is NOT a paint by numbers horror film. This is a beautifully shot revenge film that takes it’s time getting to just about everything – except naked witches. Using slow dolly shots and architecture like it’s a character unto itself, films like The Shining spring to mind. It has very few legit scares but is mesmerizing and engrossing. People worried about Sheri Moon Zombie needn’t, this is by far her best acting to date… and may I take this time to apologize on behalf of Toronto for that last Q and A question. That guy was a total d*ck.
    In a nutshell, the music and sound design is amazing. The sets and costume design are top notch. You’ll be suprised that half the cast you’re expecting to be in the film, aren’t. Zombie explained that during editing, many scenes needed to be cut for pacing.
    My only complaints are with the overall structure, characters that seem important early on, fall off to near nothing when it matters. The back story is only half shown, it would have been nice to see it played out more completely. Plus the fact one of our heroes, one who we think may change the outcome for the better is disposed of a little early so the end is without question.
    It’s not a fun ride but it’s a twisted, colorful and entertaining one. This will not play well in its current form to mainstream audiences, but don’t we have enough paint by number horror films.

    It’s Rosemary’s Baby, The Sentinel and The Devils felt up by Kubrick who just saw The Gate on late night cable.
