As you may have heard or seen by now one of my personal favorites (Rob Zombie director/writer of The Devils Rejects and House of a 1000 Corpse) among others has been slowly teasing a new horror movie 31. And because of this the horror nerds have been out in full force on the web grasping at all and any information about the movie. Rob knows is audience and plays to them by only releasing the image of a bald head wearing smeared clown make up and blood dripping from his mouth with the numbers 31 under it on his official web page. Ever since he shit the bed with the Lords of Salem his fans have been chopping at the bit for him to return to his no holds bared type of horror. Well my friends I’m happy to report that some solid news has come straight from the horses mouth itself. Although, he wouldn’t give any plot details just yet, he did put to rest that this will have nothing to do with Captain Spaulding (because of the clown makeup) and yes its a new concept that’s takes place on Halloween hence the 31. The good people at Bloody Disgusting had a chance to sit down with him and this is what he said. Rob Zombie when asked about 31.“No, it’s totally different. All I can tell you is that it’s a completely original idea, it’s something new. It’s not based on anything. I’ll start shooting the movie in the fall. So hopefully starting from October, I’ll start shooting it. For right now, I’m going to keep the details secret. But it’s not based on anything.” Rob Zombie when asked if it has anything to do with Captain Spaulding. “Well, he doesn’t really look like him, I think. There’s a clown thing in the movie, but it has nothing to do with Captain Spaulding. And what is in the movie doesn’t look like Captain Spaulding either, maybe the people think the poster does but the movie won’t.”
Although its not much and he’s keeping close to his chest Ill take it. And I cant wait to see what gory goodness he has in store for us. Hopefully he’s gotten the memo and wont star Sherri Moon in this one but I wont hold my breath.
