Halloween 2017: Devil’s Night Double Feature – The Crow and House Of 1000 Corpses

  • DailyDead
[To get you into the spooky spirit, the Daily Dead team is spotlighting double features that we think would be fun to watch this Halloween season. Check here for more double feature recommendations and other Halloween 2017 coverage.]

In horror movies, things usually go so very wrong on October 31st when it comes to the Halloween-themed offerings of the genre. But what about the night before? October 30th, or “Devil’s Night”, can also bring about its own horrific consequences, which is the theme I went with when it came time to put together my double feature of Alex ProyasThe Crow and Rob Zombie’s House of 1000 Corpses. Both are coincidentally feature film debuts for each director, they feature killer soundtracks, and this pair of films is also centered around a storyline where the characters will never be the same after their experiences on the night before Halloween.

Based on the comic by James O'Barr, The Crow finds aspiring rock star Eric Draven (Brandon Lee) rising from the grave a year after his death to take revenge on the four thugs (David Patrick Kelly, Angel David,

Rob Zombie developing The Devil’s Rejects follow-up

According to Bloody Disgusting, Rob Zombie is getting back behind the camera for a “direct follow-up” to his 2005 film The Devil’s Rejects, which was itself a spinoff from his 2003 debut House of 1000 Corpses.

The site reports that details on the new project are sketchy, especially considering that the main characters Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig), Otis Driftwood (Bill Moseley), and Vera-Ellen ‘Baby’ Firefly (Sheri Moon Zombie) were all killed at the climactic shootout of The Devil’s Rejects. Therefore it’s possible that the new film will be a prequel, or a spinoff.

Zombie’s most recent film 31 was released in 2016 and followed five carnival workers who are forced to participate in a violent game where they have to survive against a gang of sadistic clowns.

Rob Zombie Is Bringing ‘The Devil’s Rejects’ Back From the Dead, Possibly as a Prequel

Rob Zombie Is Bringing ‘The Devil’s Rejects’ Back From the Dead, Possibly as a Prequel
The Devil’s Rejects aren’t exactly living up to their name, as Rob Zombie plans to continue their story. Bloody Disgusting has confirmed that the horror-inclined filmmaker will make a trilogy of the saga that began with “House of 1000 Corpses,” Zombie’s directorial debut; how he plans to do that remains a mystery, as (spoiler alert) “The Devil’s Rejects” ended with the eponymous clan of killers dead.

Bd notes that, “while we don’t know any of the story details, we’re expecting it to be another spinoff or possibly a prequel, being that the Firefly family is presumed dead.” In the 12 years since “Rejects” was released, Zombie has directed two “Halloween” movies, “The Lords of Salem,” and last year’s “31.”

Devil's Rejects 2 Is Rob Zombie's Next Movie?

  • MovieWeb
Devil's Rejects 2 Is Rob Zombie's Next Movie?
After more than a decade, Rob Zombie is returning to the franchise that turned him into a modern voice in horror. It's been revealed that Zombie is going to make The Devil's Rejects 2 as his next directorial project. Not many details are known at the present time, but it looks like he's finally going to round out his trilogy, which started with House Of 1000 Corpses and continued with The Devil's Rejects in 2005.

In case you aren't familiar, The Devil's Rejects (arguably Rob Zombie's best movie), serves as both a spin-off and sequel to House of 1000 Corpses and takes the series in a totally different direction. The movie features the Firefly family, with Otis (Bill Moseley) and Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie) escaping a raid on their famous murder house and heading to a remote desert motel. They meet up with Baby's father, Capt. Spaulding (Sid Haig), with the

Flashback Weekend 2017: William Forsythe and Lew Temple Reflect on Rob Zombie’s The Devil’S Rejects

  • DailyDead
From August 4th through the 6th, Flashback Weekend Chicago Horror Con took over the Windy City, and Daily Dead was on hand for all the horror-fied festivities. Throughout all three days, this writer served as one of Flashback’s co-hosts, and brought back some highlights from several of the panels held over the course of the convention.

First up is a discussion on easily one of the greatest horror movies of the last 20 years, Rob Zombie’s The Devil’s Rejects, between two of the film’s co-stars, William Forsythe and Lew Temple. During their panel, the duo discussed their initial feelings on working with Zombie, collaborating alongside their fellow cast members (including the late, great Geoffrey Lewis), which scenes were improvised, and what it is about Zombie as a cinematic storyteller that has fueled them to return on several of his other projects post-Devil’s Rejects.

The Bottom Shelf: Dreamscape, House Of 1000 Corpses, C.H.U.D 2: Bud The C.H.U.D

Nick Aldwinckle Sep 4, 2017

Our latest round-up of horror and genre DVDs and Blu-rays...

So: with season two of Stranger Things fast approaching, a remake of Stephen King’s It set to mildly trouble a whole new generation and, erm, the on-going threat of nuclear armageddon, it seems everything eighties is 'in' at the moment. And, you know what? That surely must include Dennis Quaid, right? Well, maybe not, unless you count this year’s canine reincarnation/multiple hound-homicide horror A Dog’s Purpose, which we don’t in these parts. Anyway, Quaid’s back in Blu-ray form with the recent repackaging of his 1984 quirky fantasy thriller Dreamscape.

Nicely sandwiched between the release of Jaws 3-D and Enemy Mine, surely two of the most Quaidessential (sorry) films of the decade, Dreamscape sees our hero take on the mantle of a cheaper Harrison Ford, burdened with psychic powers that he must use

DVD Review – House of 1000 Corpses (2003)

House of 1000 Corpses, 2003.

Directed by Rob Zombie.

Starring Sid Haig, Bill Moseley, Sheri Moon, Karen Black, Tom Towles, Walton Goggins, Matthew McGrory, Rainn Wilson, Erin Daniels, and Dennis Fimple.

Synopsis:

Four young thrill-seekers exploring the backwoods of Texas become the victims of a family of sadistic killers.

With his latest movie 31 recently dividing audiences with its back-to-basics approach, crowdfunded production and the director’s seeming refusal to put out an uncensored cut, Fabulous Films have gone back to the beginning of controversial director/metal icon Rob Zombie’s filmmaking career and reissued his debut feature House of 1000 Corpses on DVD (why is there still no Blu-ray release for the UK?) and what an interesting exercise it is revisiting this offbeat little gem.

Interesting because there are many parallels between this movie and 31 – troubled production and director’s cuts notwithstanding, there are also plenty of narrative similarities – but whereas 31 felt rushed,

How a low budget film led to James Cameron's Aliens

Ryan Lambie Jul 14, 2017

A cult gem in its own right, 1981's Galaxy Of Terror also gave James Cameron his start in big-screen filmmaking...

In most respects, it's pure Roger Corman: low-budget, swiftly made, and loaded with gratuitous gore and bare flesh. But take a closer look at Galaxy Of Terror, the amiably tawdry sci-fi horror flick released by Corman's New World in 1981, and you'll see the creative fingerprints of one James Cameron.

Directed by Bruce D Clark - who also co-wrote - Galaxy Of Terror slams together the plots of Ridley Scott's Alien and the 50s classic, Forbidden Planet. A group of explorers land on the planet Morganthus, where they discover a huge ancient pyramid; one by one, the visitors are terrorised and killed by monsters from their subconscious. One luckless character is torn apart by claws and tentacles

Drive-In Dust Offs: Spider Baby (1967)

  • DailyDead
Never mind the holidays; dealing with family can be stressful any time of year. Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, or just a mandatory visit to a forgotten aunt you haven’t seen in 15 years can all hold their share of tension and misery. But at least be thankful you’re not part of the Merrye clan, the family at the center of Jack Hill’s Spider Baby (1967), a quirky yet clever examination of the prototypical horror tribe that influenced the likes of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) and The Hills Have Eyes (1977).

Filmed in 1964 but not given a limited release by American General Pictures until late ’67, it languished in general obscurity until a video restoration in the mid ‘90s shone a light on its peculiar charms. Filmed in 12 days on a budget of $55,000, Spider Baby, or The Maddest Story Ever Told (full title) is like watching The Addams Family shake the family tree and having incest,

Doug Bradley Returns as Pinhead for First Time in a Decade

Doug Bradley Returns as Pinhead for First Time in a Decade
Update: We have been informed that while Doug Bradley's Pinhead Experience did start the makeup process with Tom Savini's school, they were later taken off the project. Savini has little to do with the project now and serves as a consultant at this point. Tolin FX in Pittsburgh and their artist Kyle Roberts have been solely responsible for the new sculpt and makeup. Tom was introduced to the team at Tolin FX, where everyone is getting along famously. While Tom had been given credit for coordinating this project, it has been All Doug.

Original Story: Horror icon Doug Bradley and special effects legend Tom Savini have teamed up to bring Hellraiser legend Pinhead back to "life" for a special event in Arizona. The union was announced early this year, but now pictures of Bradley are starting to get posted on social media and excitement is building because number one,

Director and documentarian Mark Hartley scores both a film history and comedy success with this ‘wild, untold’ account of the 1980s film studio that was both revered and despised by everyone who had contact with it.
