Rob Zombie recently sat down with YouTube series What to Watch to discuss all things 31, including his battle with the MPAA to secure an R-rating and the level of violence in the film. We have the full interview available for you to check out below.
We know that Zombie submitted 31 to the MPAA at least three time before escaping the dreaded NC-17 classification.
We still don’t have an official US release date for the film but we will let you know for sure as soon as we learn more about Alchemy’s release strategy.
The film stars Lew Temple (Devil’s Rejects), Lawrence Hilton Jacobs (Otis), Sheri Moon Zombie (Lords of Salem), Malcolm McDowell (Clockwork Orange), Judy Geeson (The 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.
