Rob Zombie talks upcoming horror film 31, debunks rumors

Jun. 25, 2014by: Kevin Woods

Last month we learned that rocker and filmmaker Rob Zombie was developing a new horror film with the title 31, unveiling his new project with a video that looked back on some of his previous films before announcing the title of his next flick. While there were no plot details given, it was intriguing enough to fans of Zombie's work to begin some wild speculations on what the film would concern. Now Radio Metal has spoken with Zombie who was able to share a little bit about the film while debunking some of the rumors circulating about the project.

Zombie, who wouldn’t reveal any plot details, was able to confirm one thing we all kind of knew: that it takes place on Halloween night. About the title Zombie shared...

“31, yeah, because it takes place on October 31st."

When asked if the film recalls Captain Spaulding (from HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES and THE DEVIL'S REJECTS), Zombie explained:

“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.”

The site pushed forward asking about the clown mask in the announcement video, which led some to believe that 31 may have something to do with Captain Spaulding, to which Zombie shared...

“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.”

Hopefully we'll know more on 31 soon. I'm rather intrigued by this project as I've dug most of Zombie's work so far. We'll keep you posted on news regarding 31, including casting and plot details, as we hear it.

Holy crap his Halloween movies and that Salem movie sucked

The only movies he made that are watchable were The Devils Rejects and the first part of House of 1000 Corpses (it got so boring when it went full retard for its ending)

That witch movie was just boring and horribly acted. He tried to pull off some arthouse shit and it didn't work at all.

What about this movie is original? It is set on Halloween. 'Nuff said.

Rob Zombie and his films aside, you lost all credibility and integrity by utilizing the phrase "full retard". Congrats.

He has a great vision for directing, but...

He can't write for shit. I'd like to see him take on other writers scripts and put his directorial style to use. House of 1000 corpses and Devil's rejects are great examples that he knows how to get an audience immersed, and the atmosphere in the Lords of Salem was exceptional. I get it he wants to do his thing and have his "style" of characters, but his characters suck. Rob has potential, but he's gotta work with a writer or stick to other peoples projects.

more white trash and gore

Sorry, Rob. I get that you love all things horror and it's fun teasing us with this new flick, but I think maybe you should stick to the music thing. And when I see the title of the movie above, I see 3 and the letter 'I", not 31, which is a perfect example for the majority of your film career. You seem to think that horror audiences want a certain thing, but once it's released most either don't get it or don't like it.

I have to disagree. While his films are not for everyone they definitely have a large fan base, probably just as large as the people that hate them. Personally I really enjoy most of his flicks and actually really liked Lords of Salem. I'm pretty stoked he is making a Halloween film of his own and am looking forward to seeing it. Say what you will but the guy has created his own style in the genre, for better or worse...

The "I" is the roman numeral for 1. I think he used it to be disorienting.

As for the film, I've lost interest in Zombie's work. I do appreciate his stunt casting of old genre vets but the white trash aspect is tired. Dude lives in a mansion in the Hollywood Hills. He needs to get some therapy and accept his conformity and climb out of the cinema trash heap.
