Anchor Bay Films will be releasing Rob Zombie’s The Lords Of Salem on April 26th, 2013. And now we’re starting to see more and more from the film as the months until its release wind down. We’ve got four new images today, courtesy of Zombie’s Facebook page. Two of them are stills which feature cleaner looks of Sid Haig and Michael Berryman doing their hobo wiccan thing. And then we’ve got a behind-the-scenes look at Mr. Zombie onset as well as a snapshot of Sheri Moon Zombie and Bill Moseley chilling in between takes.

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?

Written and directed by Rob Zombie, The Lords of Salem stars Sheri Moon Zombie (House of 1,000 Corpses, Halloween) as well as Bruce Davison (X-Men), Jeff Daniel Phillips (Halloween 2), Ken Foree (Dawn of the Dead), Patricia Quinn (The Rocky Horror Picture Show), Dee Wallace (E.T.) and Judy Geeson (To Sir, With Love).

Check out Brad’s review of the film along with Mike’s alternate opinion here. Head inside for the pics!

    I dont care how much shit anyone talks out there, I am going to see this film even if I end up hating it! I doubt will hate it though! It looks damn good so far!

  • Zombie-Killa

    Creepy stuff! Ugh, it sucks I’ll be forced to wait on the DVD, because I’m 99% sure my theater won’t show this. Although, I’m still unsure about Rob’s wife in the leading role.

  • gomezaddams

    pretty sure that image of sherri and bill is behind the scenes from Corpses, not Lords of Salem…

    • djblack1313

      gomezaddams, i was thinking the same thing. that looks like a CORPSES image.

    • GhettoWerewolf

      My thought exactly. Unless this photo is a really big spoiler, meaning the film is a prequel to House and we’re not supposed to know about it, I don’t think this photo is from Lords of Salem.

      • djblack1313

        GhettoWerewolf, i too was wondering if LORDS was a prequel to CORPSES (if this pic was legit).

        • GhettoWerewolf

          If so, this could be interesting…

    • En_Noir

      I dunno, Rob Zombie does use the same actors quite a bit. I’m gonna go with it having nothing to do with ‘Corpses’…plus I don’t recall Bill ever wearing Corpse paint in Corpses, to where there are other stills that have been released of Sherri Moon in the same make-up. Plus as the film has already been viewed during a few film fests, I’d think that news would have been leaked by now.

        these pix are a few days old and they are from his facebook page and the one with SMZ and BM is from House with the caption “bill and sheri behind the seens back in the day from corpses” or something like that

    Nice, as much as I appreciate Anchor Bay I wish they didn’t get distribution, that way maybe it would stand a chance of landing on more than ten screens. The imagery in this one looks like something I’d like to see on the big screen.

    • Zombie-Killa

      Aaron, I agree. I know it wasn’t something to brag about, but I was dying to see the Silent Night remake in theaters.

      • Aaron Emery

        I was too, I rented it ondemand (which I’m wondering if that’s the type of simultaneous release they will do here) but I feel like if $10 dollars is going to be spent on a one time viewing, it might as well be in a theater.

  • WalkingDeadGuy

    I have no idea why I’m even excited for this movie. lol. With the exception of ‘Devils Rejects’, I’m always let down with his films. This movie, however, looks beautiful, I can see the Stanley Kubrick inspiration by the trailer, which is great.

  • doomas10

    This is one of the most exciting films for me in years. As a huge rob zombie fan I personally believe he is becoming better with each film -crucify me now because I loved his much debated take on Halloween one and two! I am hearing that the cinematography of Salem is truly astonishing. “Never gonna stop me, never gonna stop!”

    • Ress EZ

      He’s definitely not going to stop, doomas10!

      • doomas10

        damn right!

  • Ress EZ

    So this is what happened to a movie that played at the fest. After several months of total silence it will be released after all. I guess April is not only meant for Evil Dead, is it? Can’t wait for this movie. Totally dig what is being shown in the trailer. Got to show some love for the corpse paint job!

  • FadedLineVigil

    Maybe I’m the only one who thinks this, but House of 1000 Corpses and this look like a live action Six Flags Horror Fun House. Garish costume design, poor acting, bad effects and overall just kind of funny in a douche-chills kind of way. I’m sure I’ll check this out eventually though, being the horror movies junkie I am.

    • DeadInHell

      Nah, I agree. I’m sure there are exceptions, but it seems to me that most of Zombie’s filmmaking fanbase is composed of people who followed him into movies from music. They are already fans. More than that, they’re apparently all 17, and they’ve never seen a decent horror movie in their lives. This all kind of adds up to Rob Zombie being the horror messiah for a particular niche group of kids who grew up listening to “alternative” music and have never seen the films that he borrows from. In the rare case that they have, their fandom seems to simply override the part of their brain that should tell them how horrible the shit they’re watching is.

      Or maybe I’m just reading too much into this. Maybe the mere fact that someone would be a huge Rob Zombie fan means that they are entirely lacking in good taste, be it film, music, or what have you.

      What I know for sure is that this looks like more of the same disjointed, ugly, poorly written crap we’ve gotten in every one of his other films.

      • betz

        …then dont watch it, thats it

      • doomas10

        I am 25. I wouldn’t say that his films are poorly written but they are not for everyone. I personally loved his Halloween take. It was unique, different with certainly some flaws but the man has crafted his own style. He started with a grindhouse like film, then proceed to an extreme violent road movie, then a remake of a classic slasher film into a demented psycho-portrayal of MM’s soul without following any rules. Now he is tackling the supernatural genre. I think this suggests that he is always trying something new and not following the rules. Have you seen the cinematography in H2? or the performances in the devil’s rejects?

        • djblack1313

          i love me some H2! lol. i can’t help it. i just love how out there it is and how violent the kills were. :)

          • HorrorFanJames

            Yeah H2 is a guilty pleasure of mine,I know it has problems but it was the most unique Halloween film cause it tried something new.

  • STRIK9

    This and Evil Dead is the only shit I’m checkin for in theatres.I like ALL of Zombies work cause you can tell his heart is in the shit and he’s not a Hollywood/media whore.And H2 was great for what it was,another person’s take on Myers.

    • lovezoid

      Well said, I’ve enjoyed all his films, the guy obviously knows and loves the shit out of the genre. HOATC perhaps let his need to pay homage to everything he loved all at once get in the way of a balanced plot, but I loved it, and Devils Rejects was the refined version. I think he took a big risk with the Halloween films and find them a really interesting take, it’s stupid how people got all precious about them destroying what Michael Myers was, like the character hadn’t been fucked repeatedly for six sequels and two decades. They didn’t do anything half as interesting for the Nightmare, Texas Chainsaw or Friday the 13th reboots.

    Now, this is a horror film Evan.
