'31' Movie Review

by Jonathan Weichsel

31 is written and directed by Rob Zombie. The film stars Sheri Moon Zombie, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Meg Foster, Kevin Jackson, Malcolm McDowell, Jane Carr, Judy Geeson, Richard Brake, Pancho Moler, David Ury, Lew Temple, Torsten Voges, Elizabeth Daily and Michael "Red Bone" Alcott.

Rob Zombie is one of the most divisive directors of the twenty-first century. Either you love his movies, or you hate them, and the qualities that his fans love about his films, the stylized grittiness, the edgy, eccentric personality of the director which shines through all of his work, »

’31′ Review

When it comes to Rob Zombie as a filmmaker I’ll admit I have something of a soft spot for his work. He knows his horror and never bows down for the constant calls to conform to the politically correct society that seems to dominate the entertainment world now. With the release of 31, the question is, has he managed to pull off another The Devil’s Rejects or is this more of a Halloween 2?

The first thing you’ll notice with the story of 31 is that it is in very familiar territory. A group of carnival employees (including of course Sheri Moon Zombie) are travelling cross-country on Halloween. They are soon kidnapped and are entered into »

Fall Horror Movie Preview: A Definitive Guide to the Season's Macabre Offerings

22 September 2016 5:23 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

2Nd Update (9/23, 3:23 Pdt): An earlier version of this article listed Elle Evans as the actress who plays the title role in The Love Witch. That distinction in fact goes to Samantha Robinson. We regret the error. Update (9/22, 11:37 Pm Pdt): The same day this article was published, Paramount pushed back the release date for Rings from October 28 to February 3, 2017. Original Article: Fall has traditionally been viewed as the prime time of year for the horror film, but this summer was actually a pretty good one for the genre, with movies like The Conjuring 2, Lights Out, and the surprise smash Don't Breathe doing gangbusters business in the midst of blockbuster season. But the year's not over yet! With September in full swing, there are a number of worthwhile (and, yes, questionable) titles looming on the release calendar over the next three months. Below, you can find a rundown of 12 upcoming horror films, »

Review: Rob Zombie’s 31

16 September 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Coming out swinging like a prize fighter, Rob Zombie’s 31 is not only his best film, but one of the best horror films of the year. It’s an experience that as a viewer, you’ll find impossible to forget, a blood soaked, horrifyingly vicious tale of a group of down and out carnie’s being abducted and thrust into a game aptly titled “31”, in which a series of Very memorable villains are set loose on them, making the kidnapped group have to literally fight for their lives.

What makes 31 so enjoyable and later on terrifying, is the fact that we’re given such a great setup with its characters. When we see the opening scene of Richard Brake’s “Doom Head” character giving a monologue to a soon to be victim, we know that this guy will later be a force of nature that the group will have to face. »

Movie Review – 31 (2016)

3 September 2016 9:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

31, 2016

Written and directed by Rob Zombie

Starring Sheri Moon ZombieElizabeth Daily, Meg Foster, Richard Brake, Torsten Voges, Lew Temple, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Jeff Daniel Phillips, David Ury, Pancho Moler and Malcolm McDowell.

Synopsis:

Five carnival workers are kidnapped and held hostage in an abandoned, Hell-like compound where they are forced to participate in a violent game, the goal of which is to survive twelve hours against a gang of sadistic clowns.

For better or worse, Rob Zombie has a distinct style meaning that semi-knowledgeable audiences know what they are getting into once they purchase a ticket; white trash characters spewing.dialogue so foul that you almost have to commend Zombie for even brainstorming such shocking remarks (at one point one of the psychopathic murderers jokes “what’s the best part about fucking a pregnant woman”, and as you would expect the answer is repulsive), an onslaught of blood and gore capping off multiple brutal deaths, »

31 Review

2 September 2016 2:15 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Immediately after my 31 screening, Rob Zombie revealed how it only took a matter of seconds for his film’s wicked competition to materialize as an idea. This explains the chewy, undercooked nature of Zombie’s The Most Dangerous Game homage, which delivers buckets of grossness and a story that lacks a single spec of conviction. It’s death for death’s sake if you will, perverted by misogyny and told through rotting teeth. No one is safe, nothing is a sacred and life is belittled by Zombie’s bleakest endeavor yet, which is far from a pulpy-but-still-kinda-fun grindhouse experience. Think characters you don’t care about being hunted by villains you don’t understand – hate both the player and the game, you won’t be the only one.

It all starts when a group of carnies find themselves abducted by a secret society. Father Murder (Malcolm McDowell) addresses his chained prisoners, »

Second Trailer for Rob Zombie's Evil Carnival Game Horror Movie '31'

30 August 2016 3:36 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"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. »

Rob Zombie has certainly had a fairly up and down track record when it comes to his movies, but you can’t argue that he doesn’t have a style. The second a movie starts, you know it’s directed by Zombie. 31 is absolutely no different, but is it at the higher end of The Devil’s Rejects, or the lower spectrum of Halloween II?

In typical Zombie fashion, 31 sees a group of carnies in the 1970s captured by »

Newswire: Yeah, Cooley High is getting a remake, too

20 July 2016 10:39 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Your favorite movie is going to be remade or re-imagined. Just take a breath and accept that. Speaking of: Deadline announced yesterday that the 1975 coming-of-age tale Cooley High will be getting the reboot treatment. Devon Franklin, Tony Krantz (son to Steve Krantz, who produced the original) and Chicago’s own Common will be teaming up to bring a new version of the Chicago-shot classic to to theaters.

Cooley High was more sentimental than most of its blaxploitation counterparts, with more in common with American Graffiti and The Wanderers than Dolemite and Black Caesar. The story focused on the characters of Preach (Glynn Turman) and Cochise (Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs) as they make their way through teenage life on the south side of Chicago circa 1964. The film was lauded for mixing comedy and drama upon its release, dealing with themes of education and sexuality during teens’ formative years as well as ...

31 Character Posters Introduce Rob Zombie's New Maniacs

It's been three long years since director Rob Zombie's last movie, The Lords of Salem, but for those awaiting this horror filmmaker's return, you won't have to wait much longer. The musician brings his unique vision back to the big screen with his new horror-thriller 31, debuting on VOD platforms September 16 before hitting theaters on October 21. Just one month after the first trailer and poster debuted, four new character posters have arrived.

These one-sheets, which come courtesy of Saban Films, offer new looks at four unique characters, Doom-Head (Richard Brake), Psycho-Head (Lew Temple), Father Murder (Malcolm McDowell) and Charly (Sheri Moon Zombie). Writer-director Rob Zombie introduced Doom-Head to fans with a photo he released last year, with the director predicting that he will be the next great horror villain. The director also described this crazed character as "one intense dude."

Rob Zombie's 31 Trailer Is Finally Here

14 June 2016 10:13 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, Saban Films debuted a new poster for director Rob Zombie's upcoming horror-thriller 31, which will hit theaters just before Halloween. Today, the studio has unveiled the first full trailer for this highly-anticipated movie, which comes nearly two years after the first trailer was released. Now that the project has distribution and a release date in place, we can surely expect to see much more from 31 in the months ahead.

From the visionary mind of the man who brought us House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil's Rejects 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 stars Rob Zombie's wife Sheri Moon Zombie, along with Richard Brake, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Jeffrey Daniel Phillips, Lew Temple, Meg Foster and Malcolm McDowell. The supporting cast includes Elizabeth Daily, Daniel Roebuck, Tracey Walter, Ginger Lynn-Allen, Judy Geeson, Torsten Vorges, Jane Carr and Jeffrey Daniel Phillips. Richard Brake's character Doom-head has been called the next great horror villain by the director, but we'll have to wait and see how audiences respond to this character.

Rob Zombie is directing from his own screenplay and producing with Andy Gould, Matthew Perniciaro, Michael Sherman, Eddie Vaisman and Mike Elliott. Saban Films has set an October 21 release date for 31, putting this movie in a highly-competitive weekend where six other movies are currently slated to open in wide release. Also opening on October 21 is Paramount's Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Lionsgate's horror-comedy Boo! A Madea Halloween, 20th Century Fox's comedy Keeping Up With the Joneses, Focus Features' A Monster Calls, Universal's Ouija: Origin of Evil and PureFlix's drama I'm Not Ashamed.

31 was originally slapped with an Nc-17 rating by the MPAA back in December 2015, 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." It's possible that Rob Zombie will release a gore drenched director's cut sometime in the future. Until then, check out the new trailer for Rob Zombie's 31. »

First Trailer for Rob Zombie's Horror '31' About a Creepy Carnival Game

14 June 2016 10:13 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"All you have to do is survive 12 hours of our own private hell." Saban Films has debuted a trailer for Rob Zombie's latest horror film 31, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. The plot involves five carnival workers who are kidnapped and held hostage in an "abandoned, Hell-like compound where they are forced to participate in a violent game, the goal of which is to survive twelve hours against a gang of sadistic clowns." Starring Sheri Moon Zombie (but of course), Malcolm McDowell, Richard Brake, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Torsten Voges, Sandra Rosko, and Meg Foster. This looks like Zombie's typical over-stylized mix of gore and weird, gross shit. Not my cup 'o tea.
