Stream a live Rob Zombie Q&A, moderated by Fango’s Sam Zimmerman today!Movies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
Later today (Monday, April 15), AMC Theatres and GOOGLE+ are hosting a live Hangout with horror and metal renaissance man Rob Zombie in anticipation of this week’s occult heavy and wonderfully strange THE LORDS OF SALEM. Plus, I’ll be on hand to moderate questions from both the live audience and those streaming online.
Want to get a query in? Tweet your question with #amclordsofsalem and it just might be selected for the live event! The hang sesh gets underway at 7 p.m. eastern / 4 p.m. pacific right here at AMC.
LORDS OF SALEM tells the tale of “Heidi (Sheri Moon Zombie), a radio station DJ living in Salem, Massachusetts, who receives a strange wooden box containing a record, a “gift from the Lords.” Heidi listens, and the bizarre sounds within the grooves immediately trigger flashbacks of the town’s violent past. Is Heidi going mad, or are the “Lords of Salem” returning for revenge on modern-day Salem?”
I’ve seen the film twice now. It speaks directly to my occult iconography-loving sensibilities, I’ll also wholeheartedly endorse to you. Zombie’s gone down a strange road here and it’s eerie, beautifully composed and entrancing.
For more on LORDS OF SALEM, pick up our cover story in Fango #323 (on sale now), keep an eye out for an exclusive talk with the man right here this week and see our review from last fall’s Toronto International Film Festival right here.
