If you thought “The Devil’s Rejects” and “Halloween” remake director Rob Zombie couldn’t get darker, think again. Hitting the UK for a round of interviews, Zombie told Empire that his upcoming film “Lords of Salem” is set to be “the bleakest of all my films.”
The story follows ancient witches who unleash havoc on modern day Salem. Zombie elaborates: “There were twenty people that everyone knows about – obviously all innocent – executed as witches in Salem. The basic premise of the film is that there were a further four who actually were witches, who were killed secretly, and vowed one day to return to wreak havoc on Salem’s descendants. That’s when the movie jumps ahead to the present day and things start to go wrong.”
Shooting is slated to kick off April 18th. In the same interview he also confirmed he’s opted out of the remake of “The Blob”.
