Lords of Salem - Rob Zombie Talks About Final Cut

Many Scenes Were Left on the Cutting Room Floor

Rob Zombie was quite busy in the last years. He produced a new music album, played concerts and filmed a new movie. The witch horror The Lords of Salem was shown on several festivals and awaits its release on DVD/BD in late April in the UK.

The multi-talent talked with Empire Online about the finished film, reshoots, his final cut and the fact that many scenes with well-known faces were eventually left on the cutting room floor.

A lot of things got cut. Things always get cut, but in particular there was like a little movie within the movie, with Udo Kier and Clint Howard, and we had to lose that. It was always just a small background thing, but it just didn't make sense as we went along. Then Richard Lynch died, and we never finished his scenes, and there wasn't enough film of him to piece a performance together, so I had to write his character out, unfortunately. I had to go back and re-film extra stuff with Andrew Prine to fill in the blanks. And there were other people who were announced as having been cast, like Billy Drago, who were never actually in the movie. Billy was going to be, but then something happened. That took a while to fix, but we figured it out.

Even though it might not seem impossible that there could be a prolonged version later on, we wouldn't bet money on it. Time will tell.
