31 Horror Movie

"Nightmarish on every level." If you already hate carnivals, you might want to stay away from this. Saban Films has released a second trailer for Rob Zombie's latest horror feature, titled 31, about an evil carnival, twisted game. Five carnival workers are kidnapped and held hostage in a "Hell-like" compound where they must survive for 12 hours against a gang of sadistic clowns to escape alive. Starring Sheri Moon Zombie (of course), Malcolm McDowell, Richard Brake, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Torsten Voges, Sandra Rosko, and Meg Foster. I can't even tell what's going on in half of this trailer, way too many close-ups and it's over-edited. But if you dig Zombie's messed up horror flicks, then have at it.

Here's the second official trailer (+ poster) for Rob Zombie's latest film 31, direct from YouTube:

You can also still watch the first trailer for Rob Zombie's 31 here, for even more footage from this.

From the visionary mind of the man who brought us House of 1000 Corpses and Halloween 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. 31 is both written and directed by filmmaker Rob Zombie, of House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil's Rejects, Halloween, Halloween II and The Lords of Salem previously. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Saban releases 31 on VOD starting September 16th + in theaters October 31st.

I'm allergic to Sheri Moon's "acting" so until Rob stops casting his wife, it's yet another pass.

Her acting is quite unbearable, isn't it?

I don't know why I have seen most of his movies. Each one is more boring than the last.

Jon Odishaw on Aug 30, 2016


This guy's films are sick, twisted junk. Not only are they simplistic and amateurish, but the sadistic over the top gore is pathological. It says a lot about our culture when people make these kinds of sick movies and that a lot of people go to see them. This from me who knows an actor who has been in several of Zombie's movies. I just know him; we are not friends. Zombie...just walking around with a name like that tells one a lot...if they're paying attention. Ugh!

I have never understood this fascination for these walking dead. Zombie movies bore me to death. The only Zombie "movie-esque" production I enjoyed a lot was the Last of Us. The game is so good narrative and character development wise, I ended up shedding a tear and the end. And that says a lot...

tarek on Sep 2, 2016


Yea, I hear you, tarek. Any movie with a zombie in it is a very clear indication for me to avoid it at all costs. As far as this Last of Us you mention, I've never heard of it and couldn't find it on imdb, which is odd. Just some video game. No matter as I doubt I'll ever run across it. However, because you enjoyed it and even shed a rare'm intrigued. I managed to get thru World War Z only because I rather like Brad Pitt's work, but for me it turned out to be a whole lot of nothin' about nothin'

Bo on Sep 2, 2016


You didn't find it on imdb because it's a videogame indeed. Naughty dog have brilliant screenwriters. Writing is simply brilliant. To be moved by videogame characters says a lot. I watched WWZ for the same reason as you. Brad Pitt is one of my favorite actors. He is tremendousely talented.

tarek on Sep 2, 2016


That's what I thought. You were talking about a video game?...jeez man...I don't play no video games...I don't know nothing about no video games...and you cried? While engaged in a video game? sensitive soul you... Yea, I've always liked Pitt. Not sure of his choices over the last several years though. I hated...hated Fury! Didn't care at all for Inglorious Bastards...or the two films he made with the same director Assassination of Jessie James and Killing Them Softly...I really wanted to like those two movies as they were attempting something serious, but they just did not work and were boring. His zombie flick was mediocre and I've yet to see the film he did with his wife Beyond the Sea or whatever the heck it was. Heard it was horrible I don't know about Pitt...I reckon I'll always give him a chance though...

Bo on Sep 2, 2016


And I can tell you that I'm not a sentimental guy. ;D I am moved to tears only by three things: When I witness an injustice, when I listen to a beautiful music or when I watch a scene of "true" love ( not a romanticized one or a sexualized one). Will you laugh at me if I say that I shed a tear during the destruction on Hometree in Avatar, or when Neytiri rejected Jake ? ;D I don't mind. I assume it totally. As for Pitt, every time I have a doubt on his talent, I rewatch 12 Monkeys or Seven. He is the only actor who moved me to tears in this telephone scene in Babel. Inglorious Basterds had an amazing opening, but was alas ruined by over the top nonsense and noise.

tarek on Sep 2, 2016


Hey, look...I tear up and get a lump in my throat a lot while watching movies...and it can be over the silliest bit of nonsense imaginable. The way I see it is that we are all programmed and indoctrinated by our culture(s) and will therefore have knee-jerk reactions to the common cultural narrative about love and loss and blah blah blah...I'll even take note of having these reactions while having them... sort of observering them if you will and just let them happen. Of course, there is also the real stuff when a movie is operating in high gear about the human condition that will put a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye for real. Nice moments too. But the god awful, obvious manipulative stuff just depresses me while a theatre full of the masses boo hoo's their hearts Oh...didn't much care for 12 Monkeys but Seven was a real good piece of filmmaking and Pitt played that guy without one false moment. Terrific film. Just watched the thing 6 ago. In fact, I know a guy who played one of the victims...can't remember what exact deadly sin it was, but he was on the floor in his dark underwear like on his knees with his head touching the floor in front. He's kind of overweight but not obese. He spent all day like that. He was trying to be an actor and got that part. I was trying too, but would never had done something like that. He didn't even have any lines and he said the director and crew treated him like sh*t and he had to stay down on the floor like that all day. Show business ain't what the folks think it, it is one very good, dark and gritty movie!

It was the gluttony sin. The last scene with the box was pure genius.

tarek on Sep 2, 2016


Yea, I think you're right about which sin. It was a horrible and humiliating job for this guy, but he should have known better. Like I said, I would never have done that. Although he did make like 5 grand. The box scene was genius. Very different and inventive. And shot and edited and acted on the very highest levels. I liked the whole film, but when Kevin S. comes into the police station and gives himself up the whole film jacked up more than several notches from then on. And took it's time...the drive out...the scene with him in the back seat of the car...getting there...the van coming...just a top notch movie of which we don't get very often. Cheers.

Bo on Sep 2, 2016


I liked White Zombie's music, but I loathe his films. I guess there's an audience for him....but I'm not a participant. It feels like his film career is starting to burn out, so I'm always shocked and surprised that he keeps making films...kind of like Kevin Smith. LOL

RAW_D on Aug 30, 2016


This looks kinda like a spiritual sequel to HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES...not a good thing. I wonder what made Malcolm want to join this thing. Maybe he and Zombie hit it off after HALLOWEEN.

DAVIDPD on Aug 30, 2016


Personally, I loved Corpses and Rejects. Yeah, his films and music have gone downhill, but this looks fun.

grimjob on Aug 30, 2016


I personally didn't care for Corpses that much, but I did enjoy Rejects quite a bit. Haven't seen his Halloween reimagining, but I hope this is decent.

eris on Sep 1, 2016


You're not really missing anything from his Halloween movies. Although I will say he got the mask right. His Myers is the best-looking Myers since the original. And Tyler Mane did a damn fine job.

grimjob on Sep 1, 2016


As someone said; why so base?

shiboleth on Aug 31, 2016


Where do movies keep getting their endless parade of homicidal maniacs?

redtie on Aug 31, 2016


13 year old me is excited. 41 year old me is yawning at the thought of 13 year old me being excited.
