When Rob Zombie released the trailer for his upcoming horror flick, The Lords of Salem, it looked pretty fucking awesome…and super blasphemous. Religious folk are going to pissed.
Yesterday, the poster art was revealed and I have a few issues.
My main issue is with the font choice… Impact, Rob? Seriously? This isn't an internet meme, this is a horror movie. Pick a better font, damn it!
I do like the juxtoposition of the sky blue with the typically grim black metal dude, since black metal is usually so black and white, this addition of a bright color makes for a instantly appealing look.
Overall, the poster doesn't matter. What matters is if the movie is any good, and hopefully it is.
The Lords of Salem comes out on April 26th, three days after Zombie's new album, Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor is released on Zodiac Swan/T-Boy/Ume.
