SXSW 2013: Rob Zombie and the Cast of Lords of Salem

Lords of Salem

Rob Zombie’s latest film will be released soon, April 19, so if you missed it at SXSW you’ll get to see it soon. I sat with Zombie to talk about his horror movie about witches, as well as stars Sherri Moon Zombie and Jeff Daniel Phillips. Moon had some wry deadpan that fooled even me. With Zombie we definitely went beyond the movie to talk about the recurring political debate over media violence, piracy and how “Beavis and Butt-Head” could have saved the music industry. You know Rob Zombie isn’t afraid to say anything, even if his opinions are controversial.
