"The book offers a different experience from the film since it can obviously go into much more detail," says Rob Zombie. "The book and the film really complement each other."
From the singular mind of horror maestro Rob Zombie comes a chilling plunge into a nightmare world where evil runs in the blood...
Heidi Hawthorne is a thirty-seven-year-old FM radio DJ and a recovering drug addict. Struggling with her newfound sobriety and creeping depression, Heidi suddenly receives an anonymous gift at the station-a mysteriously shaped wooden box branded with a strange symbol. Inside the box is a promotional record for a band that identifies themselves only as The Lords. There is no other information.
She decides to play it on the radio show as a joke, and the moment she does, horrible things begin to happen. The strange music awakens something evil in the town. Soon enough, terrifying murders begin to happen all around Heidi. Who are The Lords? What do they want?
As old bloodlines are awakened and the bodies start to pile up, only one thing seems certain: all hell is about to break loose.
This is the PERFECT book to get in the Halloween spirit. None of that cheesy hocus pocus will be seen in this book. It’s all down to the nitty gritty, the things that chill your bones in the middle of the night.
This book is utterly horrifying. Exactly what fans of Zombie can expect. The gore, the brutality, and the crude content—everything that defines a Rob Zombie story, Lords of Salem doesn’t disappoint.
The psychological terror that Heidi Hawthorne goes through is well developed, making the reader constantly look over the shoulder. Zombie shines in creating graphic horror. The evil introduced in this book is equally terrifying as it is intriguing.
