Directed by Rob Zombie, the first trailer for The Lords of Salem has gone online. The film follows a DJ’s unintentional reawakening of a 300-year-old coven of witches. Zombie’s movies are usually over the top with gore and schlock (just the way I like it), but the use of Mozart’s “Requiem” accompanying this teaser trailer comes across as a bit more subtle. Coming in just under two minutes, the trailer hints at what became of the 17th century coven, how they returned to contemporary times and what consequences that brings. It’s interesting, but perhaps not enough to win over new fans. Starring Sheri Moon Zombie, Clint Howard, Bruce Davison and Sid Haig, The Lords of Salem opens later this year. Hit the jump to watch the trailer.

Here’s the synopsis for The Lords of Salem:
Heidi (Moon Zombie), a radio station DJ, receives a wooden box containing a record. Heidi listens and the bizarre sounds within the grooves immediately trigger flashbacks of Salem’s violent past. Is Heidi going mad or are the Lords of Salem returning for revenge on modern day Salem?
