Hybrid DVD news

Arriving on Blu-ray and DVD on August 23rd from Anchor Bay Entertainment is Hybrid. Hybrid is described as: Neal Marshall Stevens’ horror film directed by Eric Valette (One Missed Call). Late one night a mysterious car is brought into the Chicago police impound garage after a deadly traffic accident. The garage’s female mechanic, Tilda, and her young, hip fellow mechanics soon discover the car has a mind of its own: It morphs into different cars to confuse them, and instead of needing an engine to run, it breathes. It’s a killing machine that is capable of outrunning and outwitting humans. In a high-octane fight to the death, it’s our group of determined humans versus the car in this supernatural action-adventure in the vein of Stephen King’s ‘Christine’ and ‘Transformers’.

Rob Zombie on Lords of Salem FX

Rob Zombie tells fans on his blog that, “At this time there are no plans to use any CGI in LORDS. I am not a fan of it although I think it can be very effective it used in very subtle ways. But no one uses it that way. We have begun working, but not shooting yet. This is a very practical FXs [sic] heavy film, so that department has been working for awhile building insane shit. I will start after the summer. No one is on board yet, but casting will start very soon.” Lords of Salem is described as: Heidi, a blond rock chick, DJs at a local radio station, and together with the two Hermans (Whitey and Munster) forms part of the “Big H Radio Team.” A mysterious wooden box containing a vinyl record arrives for Heidi, a gift of the Lords. She assumes it’s a rock band on a mission to spread to spread their word. As Heidi and Whitey play the Lord’s record, it starts to play backwards, and Heidi experiences a flashback to a past trauma. Later, White plays the Lord’s record, dubbing them the Lords of Salem, and to his surprise, the record plays normally and is a massive hit with his listeners. The arrival of another wooden box from the Lords presents the Big H team with free tickets, posters and records to host a gig in Salem. Soon, Heidi and her cohorts is far from the rock spectacle they’re expecting. The original Lords or Salem are returning and they’re out for blood.
