Rob Zombie is rounding out a full decade of being a voice in the horror film world, as 2013 marks ten years since the much-delayed release of House Of 1000 Corpses. His fifth feature film, Lords Of Salem, is his most modestly-budgeted yet (a mere $2.5 million), and has already started dividing audiences with its debut at TIFF.
I’m eager to see the film for myself (the reactions from people I trust have ranged from “interesting!” to outright “good!”), and I’m pleased to say Anchor Bay will be my huckleberry. The studio picked up the film –which went into its screening with a lot of buyer interest– out of Toronto and will presumably set it for a 2013 release. I’m assuming a VOD / Theatrical hybrid on this one, which has seemingly worked pretty well for the similarly micro-budgeted horror flick V/H/S.
The LA Times has a nice story about Zombie’s aversion to explaining himself or engaging with creepy Q&A attendees you should check out here.
