Rob Zombie Battles “The Lords of Salem”

Rob Zombie will write and direct the feature film “The Lords of Salem” for Haunted Films says Deadline.

The story is set against the backdrop of modern day Salem, Massachusetts where 300-year-old witches haunt the town. The title comes from the song track of the same name featured on Zombie’s “Educated Horses” album.

Zombie had originally intended to create a “Lords of Salem” band or comic book with “30 Days of Night” creator Steve Niles but it never came to fruition. “Paranormal Activity” producers Jason Blum, Steven Schneider and Oren Peli will serve in the same capacity here.
