Biff Bam Pop Exclusive: Dee Wallace on Rob Zombie’s Lords of Salem

This past Thursday I had the amazing privilege to talk to the legendary actress and horror icon Dee Wallace about her new film Exit Humanity, which makes its way onto DVD June 19th. The majority of our conversation was spent talking about the film, why she was drawn to the role of Eve and working with director John Geddes. We’ll have that feature up closer to the release of the film (which I recommend checking out – it’s one of the most unusual and beautifully shot zombie films I’ve ever watched ), but close to the end of our conversation I asked Dee what she could say about another of her films, Rob Zombie’s upcoming, The Lords of Salem. Dee’s worked with Zombie before, on Halloween and The Haunted World of El Superbeasto and, as you’ll see below, was full of love for the man I consider the best director in horror right now. Our exchange on The Lords of Salem was brief, but it gives us a little more insight into what we can expect from the film when it’s released later this year. Check out Dee’s comments after the jump.

Andy Burns: Now, I know you can’t say much and I’m not asking for spoilers…

Dee Wallace: What I can tell you is I play a self-help guru and I have a big arc, and Rob wrote the part for me.

Andy Burns: Brilliant.

Dee Wallace: I’ve seen a lot of the footage and all I can say is don’t miss it. The last scene is worth the entire movie itself. It’s amazing. It’s a huge cinematic departure in a way for him, as far as the look of the film is concerned. Sheri (Moon Zombie) really has to step up in this film and do some pretty amazing stuff out of her comfort zone. I can’t say enough about Rob and how much I love him and appreciate him and love working with his creativity. He wrote, directed, a lot of his music is in it. (He’s) doing the poster work for it, editing it. I mean, literally, everything is Rob. You know, he called a lot us and we were there. You just want to work with him. You just want to.
