Rob Zombie was on record saying after the release of LORDS OF SALEM he was stepping away from the horror genre for awhile to work on a hockey film set in the 70’s title Broadstreet Bullies. That project didn’t pan out and maybe it’s for the best for horror fans that dig Zombie’s style.
A few days ago he teased his new project, 31, releasing a teaser poster with a clown on it. I speculated perhaps it had to do with John Wayne Gacy and his 31 victims. I was dead wrong. Instead it appears Zombie is taking the approach of The Purge meets Halloween.
OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE:
Welcome to my next film. It is called 31. It is the story of five random people kidnapped on the five days leading up to Halloween and held hostage in a place called Murder World. While trapped inside this man-made Hell they must fight to survive playing the most violent game known to man… a game called 31.
31 has no rules. 31 has no boundaries. It is ever so simple. Do whatever you can do to kill your opponent before they kill you. Keep this up for 12 hours and freedom is yours.
Who are the opponents? Well… a group of vile, filthy, blood-thirsty clowns known as THE HEADS. They come in all shapes and sizes and each grows nastier than the last.
What kind of film is this you ask? It is a fast paced, mean dirty film for those who like it rough. Get ready for a sick piece of celluloid! This is some hardcore business for the blood-thirsty gore hounds.
