"...it's a very unique-looking town when it comes to the architecture of the buildings and the streets. I had kind of forgotten... I went back [to Salem] recently to do some scouting. I forgot how interesting the houses and the buildings were. It's very cinematic. It's a great back backdrop for something like this." --Robert Bartleh Cummings ZombieAnyway, IM Global Films recently released a synopsis of Lords of Salem and it goes like this:
Heidi, a blonde rock chick, DJs at a local radio station, and together with the two Hermans (Whitey and Munster) forms part of the “Big H Radio Team”.According to the article, the film will be very "effects-heavy." So the pre-production in the effects department has been working diligently on some disgusting masks and bodyparts no doubt. Exciting!
A mysterious wooden box containing a vinyl record arrives for Heidi, “a gift from the Lords”. She assumes it’s a rock band on a mission to spread their word. As Heidi and Whitey play the Lords’ record, it starts to play backwards, and Heidi experiences a flashback to a past trauma.
Later Whitey plays the Lords’ record, dubbing them the Lords of Salem, and to his surprise, the record plays normally and is a massive hit with listeners.
The arrival of another wooden box from the Lords presents the Big H Team with free tickets, posters and records to host a gig in Salem. Soon Heidi and her cohorts find that the gig is far from the rock spectacle they’re expecting: the original Lords of Salem are returning, and they’re out for BLOOD.
Here are some pictures of the guys at Wayne Toth FX working on some props for the film.
