His next film will be the upcoming The Lords of Salem which is scheduled to premiere in theaters sometime in 2012. Born in Haverhill, Massachusetts, he was the first of two brothers. His younger brother Michael David Cummings was born on August 25, 1968 and is better known as Spider One, the "gay" frontman of alternative metal group Powerman 5000. Based in New York, White Zombie was originally a noise rock band in the vein of fellow New York band Sonic Youth and Texas experimental punk band Butthole Surfers.
