The Lords of Salem (Entertainment One/Blumhouse, 2012)

Rocker Rob Zombie became a filmmaker in 2003. In 2012, he produced and directed The Lords of Salem, an independent supernatural horror film. Heidi (Sheri Moon Zombie) is a recovering drug addict working in Salem as a radio DJ. She receives a record from the Lords of Salem. This record put listeners in a trance and gave them disturbing visions. This is, of course, a plot to usher in the end of the world, thanks to a coven of ancient Satan-worshipping women.

Lords of Salem was the third film produced by Haunted Films (the other two being 2007’s Paranormal Activity and 2011’s Insidious.) A novel of the film was written by Rob Zombie and released in March 2013.
