I’ve been pretty upfront about my unabashed admiration of the work of Rob Zombie, most recently with my review of The Lords of Salem, which premiered last September at the Toronto International Film Festival. The movie is set to hit theatres April 19th, which gives everyone lots of time to digest this trailer for the film, which just dropped in the last hour.
Believe me when I tell you, though, that no trailer is going to prepare an audience for The Lords of Salem. While I firmly believe it’s Zombie’s best and most accomplished, it is also his most brutal and hard to define. To call it a horror film is way too simplistic – this is a tour de force, a magnum opus – it’s Rob Zombie unleashed. Literally. I can’t wait to see it again.
Check out the trailer and start counting the days until The Lords come-a-calling. And if you want a further taste, revisit our interview with star Dee Wallace, who have us a some insight into the film last summer.
