Rob Zombie Talks ’31,’ Confirms Halloween Backdrop!

rob-zombie-31I know it wasn't a reach to speculate that Rob Zombie's next film 31 had something to do with the Halloween season, but I did so right here when his project was announced back in May. Rob Zombie himself has confirmed that the film takes place on October 31st with Radio Metal in a recent interview, but he's being coy about offering any further details.

He did say, however:

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.

In terms of the reaction to the teaser image and the Captain Spaulding references it received from the online community, Zombie added:

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.

More on this film as it comes in!

As for the hockey movie he was going to direct about the Philadelphia Flyers, called Broad Street Bullies, he says that project is on hold until it finds its funding.


    Yes! I can picture the soundtrack being really good for some reason. You could do a lot with the empty late night streets on Halloween

    well we got our answer.
    hoping he get back to the devil reject style

    should be interesting House Of A 1000 Corpses is still one of my fav movies and the best movie of his just love everything about from the feel of the film dark 70’s type feel and the characters. next would be Devils Rejects which is pt 2 to other movie. the 2 Halloween remakes he did were ok, Lords Of Salem was ok but didn’t really like it and by far the worst one of his movies. But yeah i hope he goes back to the House Of A 1000 Corpses style

    and looking at the poster didn’t think about it being about Captain Spaulding (though that would also make a good movie) but to me reminded me of John Wayne Gacey. He said its completely original and all but im sure its gonna resemble a lot of John Wayne Gacey’s persona but were it is set to take place on Halloween its more than likely be another Halloween type film but replacing Michael Myers with the killer clown.

    • Kill Joy

    While i love his Halloween ‘remake’ films as there ‘own thing’ – I’m the first one to admit his first one is not very loyal.. and his second one has NOTHING to do with the classic Halloween series AT ALL LOL – So its good to see him do his own thing. He should not be doing remakes to anything.. he is his own thing.

    Sounds good to me. I like everything zombie does.’lords of salem’ was slept on big time.
