Rob Zombie shares a new image from 31 after its first screening

The first positive review of Rob Zombie's new film 31 is in, and it comes from the writer/director himself. Last night, Zombie took to his Facebook page to make the following report:

Had a special screening of 31 last night. Holy f*ck it was awesome! Even though the film is not 100% finished it rocked. If you loved The DEVIL'S REJECTS... well, then you will love this one.

In my opinion, THE DEVIL'S REJECTS is one of the best horror movies to come out in the last ten to fifteen years and remains Zombie's filmmaking masterpiece, so the fact that Zombie is implying that 31 is a similar sort of film bodes very well for my enjoyment of it.

31 is about 

five carnival workers who are kidnapped the night before Halloween and held hostage in a large secret compound known as Murder World. Once there, they have 12 hours to survive a terrifying game called 31 in which “The Heads” – murderous maniacs dressed as clowns – are released to hunt them down and kill them.

Along with his response to the screening, Zombie also posted a new image from the film, which can be seen below.

31 stars Richard Brake (as horror's next great villain?), Malcolm McDowell, Sheri Moon Zombie, Meg Foster, Judy Geeson, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Jane Carr, Ginger Lynn, Daniel Roebuck, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Pancho Moler, Tracy Walter, E.G. Daily, Torsten Voges, David Ury, Lew Temple, Bari Suzuki, and Devin Sidell.

Alchemy has the distribution rights to the film and I am anxiously waiting to hear when they plan on releasing it. With 31 getting close enough to completion that screenings are being held, hopefully it won't be much longer before we learn when a wider audience will get a chance to watch it.
