Bill Moseley talks Rob Zombie's Three From Hell

Early next year we can all expect to see the third entry in Rob Zombie's Fire Family series with his HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES and THE DEVIL'S REJECTS follow-up THREE FROM HELL starring Bill Moseley, Sheri Moon Zombie, and Sid Haig. And speaking of Mr. Moseley today we have some new info on the upcoming film via an interview Moseley had with the guys over at Rue Morgue.

Bill Moseley on THREE FROM HELL:

All of the people who loved HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES and DEVIL’S REJECTS are going to have a luau of excitement and happiness when they see 3 FROM HELL. It’s going to be a crowdpleaser. From what I’ve heard from Rob, he’s very happy and excited about what he’s got, and it’s chockablock with gratuitous violence [laughs], which is great, because lately there have been a lot of good horror movies that just don’t have a lot of that. I mean, the violence is skillful, it’s effective, but it’s not gratuitous, and that’s what I think the fans are missing. I think we just want a lot of violence for violence’s sake—decapitations, shotguns to the face, just general ass-kickin’ stuff that we’re not really getting much of these days.

On getting back into character:

We all had a good time. We had to get down to it, because I don’t think the whole shoot took much longer than 20 days. We really had to kick ass. I think my first day working, I had a bit of a monologue to deliver, and in the first two takes, I fumbled the lines, because I was nervous. I was trying to capture whatever I had with Otis in HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES, and of course now, it’s about 15 years later. Rob kind of looked at me askance after I’d fumbled the second take, and I just said, ‘Give me a second.’ I sat down, took a deep breath, I exhaled, and a voice in my head said, ‘Bill, I got this.’ It was the voice of Otis, basically telling the insecure actor to take a hike, and the third take was the charm. I just had to get to that place, which mercifully didn’t take long.

On what fans can expect:

The fans I’ve seen recently are just so excited that there’s finally a sequel to DEVIL’S REJECTS. Most of the people I talk to just love it and continue to watch it, sometimes three or four times a day, God bless ’em. The fact that we’re actually doing a new one has them buzzing. And I’m excited about the fact that, from what I gather, it’s going to blow the minds of the fans, and they’re going to be very happy with it. They’re not going to be disappointed.

Truthfully, all of these comments do little to heighten or lessen my excitement for Zombie's THREE FROM HELL. I don't care how lackluster some of Zombie's films have been since the days of THE DEVIL'S REJECTS, you would have to physically restrain this guy from heading to the theater (or, you know VOD) and checking out this new movie ASAP.

How about you? How excited are YOU for Rob Zombie's THREE FROM HELL? Let us know below!
