From Saban Films and Lionsgate, director Rob Zombie is ready to unleash his latest wicked offering to the world! 31 will be in theaters just in time for Halloween, arriving ten days earlier on October 21. The official poster has arrived. And it promises that the show must go on! Even if the grill of your van is splattered with blood.
From the visionary mind of the man who brought us House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects and The Lords of Salem comes the horrific story of five carnival workers who are kidnapped the night before Halloween and held hostage in a large compound. At the mercy of their captors, they are forced to play a twisted game or life or death called 31. For the next 12 hours they must fight for their lives against an endless parade of homicidal maniacs.
Rob Zombie also wrote this horrifying new experience in terror. Mike Goodridge executive produces alongside producers Rob Zombie, Andy Gould, Matthew Perniciaro and Michael Sherman, Eddie Vaisman, Mike Elliott. David Daniel is the director of photography, with Jeff Cardoni responsible for the terrifying soundscapes. This very bloody motion picture has been edited by Glenn Garland. The cast includes Sheri Moon Zombie, Malcom McDowell, Meg Foster, Elizabeth Daily, Sandra Rosko, and Richard Brake.
31 will be available On Demand early on September 16. At 102 minutes, the movie has earned itself a very well deserved R rating. Said Saban Films President Bill Bromiley about this exciting fall release.
“31 is a treat not just to horror fans, but fans of true auteur filmmaking. The film is executed in true stylistic Zombie fashion. Rob is an unrivaled talent, and we are thrilled to bring his bold new film to audiences across the continent.”
Said Rob Zombie.
“After meeting with Saban, it was obvious that this was the perfect home for 31.They have a true understanding of the genre and how to handle it. I am very excited to work with them.”
Back in December of 2015, 31 was slapped with an NC-17 rating by the MPAA, and even after Rob Zombie submitted a re-edited cut, the MPAA still gave the film an NC-17 rating. After another round of edits, the MPAA finally gave the movie an R rating this past January, for “strong bloody horror violence, pervasive language, sexual content and drug use.” Part of the reason was because of the new horror villain named Doom-Head, played by Richard Brake. He is one of an endless gang of grease painted maniacs who make 31 the fun Halloween treat that it is. We don’t get to see ol’ Doom-Head in this latest one-sheet courtesy of Saban Films. But we are promised one very violent ride. Take a look, but only if you dare.
