Okay, so I am pretty late to the party on this one but a new trailer has surfaced for Rob Zombies upcoming horror flick ‘31‘.Telling the tale of 5 carnival workers kidnapped and forced to take part in a deadly game called 31 a day before Halloween. Each person must survive playing 31 for 12 hours while being hunted by killer clowns (and if you may have seen my previous opinion piece on clowns and horror movies then it is no surprise that I am super stoked for this.)
This new trailer shows highlights of some brutal murders and close ups of our villains, who all look brilliantly insane and includes a peek at a murderer in a bunny rabbit outfit too (yep!)
This movie has been on my list for a long time and the new trailer shows it too be what I feel will be Zombie’s greatest movie to date, it looks fun, gory and some scares along the way.
Anyway, have a watch of the trailer and let me know what you think.
Rob Zombie’s upcoming horror movie ’31’ has struggled to be edited enough in the past with the movie twice receiving a NC-17 rating from the MPAA to finally go through a final stage of editing to get itself an R rating ( 18 in UK ) and a more cinema friendly rating for the upcoming release.
Back in December Zombie was visibly frustrated and took to his facebook page to share said frustrations by saying the following.
‘Well, after two tries through the MPAA our rating on 31 remains NC-17. Maybe three is the charm to get an R rating. Why R you ask? Well, because your local theater will not show an NC-17. Even though you are a fucking adult… things much be censored for your enjoyment.‘
Rob Zombie’s official website gives the following synopsis of the movie.
On October 30, 1975, five carnival workers were kidnapped and held hostage until the following night (Halloween), where they are put in a compound. They’re told that they are there to take part in a game named “31” where the goal is to survive past the next 12 hours. This is made difficult by the fact that they are not alone; a violent gang of evil clowns are there and stalking their every move. (www.robzombie.com/movies/31-movie/)
With 31 premiering at the Sundance festival’s midnight section on January 23rd, I will hopefully have more information regarding releases and reactions to the showing by then, but this recieving a R rating does please me as I cannot wait for this movie as I have always enjoyed Zombies previous work.
