It appears Rob Zombie is tapping back into his House of 1000 Corpses roots and bringing they psycho circus feel back to the big screen. The poster features “12 Horrific Clowns, 12 hours to play, 12 hours to kill and 12 hours to survive.” Remember when I said the IT remake could make us fear clowns again on a very ethereal level? Well 31 could top that with Zombie’s brutal style of film making. One criticism I have of Zombie’s projects are that they always feature his wife, Sherri Moon Zombie and more often than not Malcolm McDowell. Branch out a little and cast some new leads. The same tired cast has become stale.
If I point out the bad I should also point out the good. Zombie’s films have a very unique style about them and have breathed new life into the careers of horror favorites like Sid Haig, Ken Foree and Bill Mosley. Staples in the horror community and hell of some nice guys!
