House of 1000 Corpses Unrated Cut Is Lost Forever Says Rob Zombie
Last weekend, director Rob Zombie returned with a new horror-thriller entitled 31, which is currently playing in select theaters and available on VOD formats. Some fans are still waiting for an extended edition of his directorial debut, House of 1000 Corpses. But those fans seemingly shouldn't hold their breath for this to come out. The director spoke about this long-awaited extended edition in a recent interview, and it seems it may never be released.

Rob Zombie first rose to fame as the lead singer of the rock group White Zombie, and he would often direct his own music videos for the band, including one for the group's breakout hit "More Human Than Human." In 2003, Rob Zombie made his feature directorial debut with House of 1000 Corpses, which was hardly a critical (19% on Rotten Tomatoes) or a commercial ($16.8 million worldwide from a $7 million budget) success, but it would go on to be a cult classic.

That was way back in 1995, which is (quick math, uses fingers) a solid 18 years ago.

The three actors who played the transcendent roles — Michael Treanor as Rocky, Max Elliott Slade as Colt, and Chad Power as Tum Tum — have largely stayed out of the spotlight since the movies debuted. But what are they up to these days? What are they doing with themselves? What do we hope they are doing with themselves? And why weren't they at least in one of the "Expendables" movies?

Hey Star Wars ! Happy 35th !

Where were you 35 years ago, fellow movie geeks ( if you even existed ) ? Well, it turns out that today, May 25, 2012, is the 35th anniversary of the day the original Star Wars ( it wouldn’t be given the episode IV subtitle for several years ) exploded on USA movie screens. This was the big one. Steven Spielberg had established the Summer as a prime time for escapist Hollywood blockbusters with Jaws in 1975 , but George Lucas solidified ” school’s out ” as the ” get out of the heat and lose yourself in a fantasy world ” season. It’s difficult to convey to you younger film fans what a game changer this was. Most sci-fi fantasy films were ultra-low budget saucers on the loose with guys in ill-fitting rubber suits B movies. We had the occasional big, stompin’ monster epics from Japan along with the James Bond series ( by then in the very tongue-in-cheek Roger Moore
