I am now counting down the hours until I get to see Rob Zombie's latest original feature film, The Lords of Salem. I have been excited for the film since before it even started production, and with the release of plot details, and then a pair of amazing trailers, I can barely contain myself.
Check out the dialogue-sparse, Ken Russell/golden age of Italian horror-vibed first trailer:
And the more plot conscious second trailer:
For someone like me, who has quite the fondness for the classic Italian style of Dario Argento and Lucio Fulci, this film looks like a wet dream, and I am in love with the simplistic plot of a radio DJ inadvertently playing an incantation that brings back some executed Salem witches. Coincidentally, I have been stocking up on Arrow Video's amazing releases of the more neglected genre cinema, and Zombie's new film is potentially nothing but an exciting addition to the trove (even if Sheri's questionable acting chops still doesn't scratch that itch, though then again, the acting in the classics was never that great).
Check back here tomorrow night for my one word instant reaction to a film I am hyping up ridiculously; The Lords of Salem.
