Rob Zombie Selected to Bring Groucho Marx's Story to the Screen

So far, Rob Zombie directorial career has resulted in either terrible movies (House of 1,000 Corpses), movies that start strong than devolve into crap (2007's Halloween) or something of a mixed bag (The Devil's Rejects, The Lords of Salem). Or he makes The Haunted World of El Superbeasto, a nasty little bugger of a film where you'll want to stand in the shower for nine days after watching. How, then, this qualifies him to bring Groucho Marx's life story to the screen is anyone's guess, but stranger things have happened in Hollywood. As a matter of fact, looking into the details, Zombie's involvement begins makes a little more sense. amz asin="1593936524" size="small"The biopic, based on Steve Stolair's memoir "Raised Eyebrows: My Years Inside Groucho's House", will not span the comedic actor's whole career but rather his bizarre final ones as seen from his personal secretary/archivist and young fan's perspective.

Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare Returns!

Last year, Rob Zombie ventured into new territory with his first ever Halloween haunt, Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare.

Rob Zombie Returning To Horror With 31

One of horror’s most well-known directors (or at least, one with an undeniably awesome, genre-appropriate name), Rob Zombie has been laying low since 2012′s The Lords of Salem, a disappointing flick mostly devoid of the scares it promised. However, Zombie has made his love of the genre no secret, so the less-than-warm reception for that film was never likely to keep him away from horror for long. Now, an intriguing tease for what could be the director’s next big-screen project has popped up online.

On the director’s official website, Junior Manager Sarah Martin McIvor recently uploaded a trailer for a film called 31, which you can check out below. Unfortunately, there’s nothing by way of actual footage. Instead, the video looks back on Zombie’s previous directorial gigs, which include House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects, The Haunted World of El Superbeasto, Halloween, Halloween II and The Lords of Salem.

Dread Central Haunts Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare

When a haunt begins with you walking up to a giant pair of legs and squeezing your way into an oversized vagina, you know you’re in for some serious shit. That’s what Dread Central is greeted with when we step foot on the FEARplex to preview Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare!

Zombie is no stranger to haunted attractions, having ironically worked with Universal the past several years on House of 1000 Corpses mazes for Halloween Horror Nights. But for this event, he’s gone off on his own and teamed up with producer Steve Kopelman to create three mazes based on his films: House of 1000 Corpses, The Haunted World of El Superbeasto, and Lords of Salem.

Greeting us at the construction site, Zombie and Kopelman elaborate on the differences between this new House of 1000 Corpses maze compared to previous years:

The Lords of Salem (2013) Review

  • MoreHorror
Reviewed by Kevin Scott, MoreHorror.com

I really had not planned to write a review about Rob Zombie’s latest endeavor “The Lords of Salem”. The primary reason simply being that the internet just plain didn’t need another review of this film residing out there in cyberspace. Call it “saturating the market” if you will, me writing about something slightly obscure, new or old would have more than likely served the reader better. Here I am though, so let’s get to it.

I guess I should elaborate on the reason I ended up here. I’ve read only one review that was somewhat favorable about this film. The rest offered no hope of Mr. Zombie regaining his former greatness as the man that would save mainstream horror by giving it all the grime, violence, and homages to vintage films that just could not be found in any similar ilk anywhere else.

Exclusive: Rob Zombie Talks Cult Classics, the State of Horror and The Lords of Salem!
Rob Zombie Talks The Lords of Salem, available now on Blu-ray, DVD and VOD

The summer movie season is officially over and the fall awards season has yet to kick into full gear, so we, as film fans, are stuck in a weird sort of limbo that consists of last month's leftovers and B grade schlock at the Cineplex this weekend. If you can't muster up the energy needed to see Vin Diesel in the Drive-In classic-to-be Riddick, you could instead crank up the AC, grab any beverage of choice, and select The Lords of Salem on Blu-ray or DVD. Even better, it's also available on VOD, which just takes a couple of clicks on the remote to enjoy!

Released in the spring to bewildered stares and mostly slack-jawed amazement, now is the prefect time to either see The Lords of Salem for the first time, or revisit its weird

Rob Zombie to Unleash His Great American Nightmare on Los Angeles
