From all indications, Rob Zombie has nearly completed his new movie The Lords of Salem, which follows his previous films The Haunted World of El Superbeasto and Halloween II.

According to

The story is about a local DJ who mistakenly unleashes a hellish curse on the town. 300 years earlier on the very streets of Salem that the townspeople walk on today, innocent folks were rounded up from their homes, convicted of being witches and sentenced to death. The Lords of Salem ran the town with an iron fist, but four witches who were tortured and killed in secrecy vowed that one day they would be back for revenge.

The film should be released sometime before the end of 2012. Zombie recently posted some behind the scenes photos of the movie to his Facebook page. Check them out here:
