Rob Zombie has taken to Facebook to share the official theatrical trailer for his latest film, 31. It is exactly what you’d expect from the rocker turned horror filmmaker: Plenty of killer clowns, lots of ultra violence, and a hefty helping of Sheri Moon Zombie. You can check out the official trailer for yourself, below!
We know that Zombie submitted 31 to the MPAA at least three time before escaping the dreaded NC-17 classification. But he has finally succeeded in securing an R-rating and he doesn’t feel that he had to compromise his vision. The film will enjoy a limited theatrical release beginning September 16th, 2016.
31 stars Lew Temple (Devil’s Rejects), Lawrence Hilton Jacobs (Otis), Sheri Moon Zombie (Lords of Salem), Malcolm McDowell (Clockwork Orange), Judy Geeson (Lords of Salem), Meg Foster (They Live), Richard Brake (Doom), Daniel Roebuck (Phantasm: Ravager), Michael “Redbone” Alcott (The Devil’s Rejects), Jeffrey Daniel Phillips (Lords of Salem), and more.
31 is set in 1975. The project zeroes in on five people kidnapped in the days leading up to Halloween. They are brought to a place called Murder World where they must fight for their survival by playing a deadly game called 31. To win, the ‘contestants’ must kill their opponents over a 12-hour period. Their adversaries are comprised of a group of sadistic killer clowns. The title obviously refers to Halloween–the 31st day in October.
