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.”

Deadly Dialogue: A Conversation on Cinema with Jason Blum

  • DailyDead
In just over 20 years in Hollywood, producer Jason Blum has amassed an amazing résumé as a producer, and Blumhouse Productions, the company he founded a little over ten years ago now, has become a juggernaut multi-media force to be reckoned with during that time.

Most horror fans know Blum from his involvement with numerous hit franchises, including Paranormal Activity, Insidious, Sinister, The Purge, and Ouija as well as his hand in the soon-to-be newly minted franchises that have sequels on the way: Creep, The Gallows, Unfriended, and Split (with Glass). Oh, and there’s also the matter of the numerous one-off projects he’s produced as well (genre or otherwise), including Get Out, In A Valley of Violence, The Gift, The Lords of Salem, Oculus, as well as the 2015 Oscar winner Whiplash.

With the most recent Blumhouse production currently in theaters (Christopher Landon’s most excellent Happy Death Day), I

Listen to the Corpse Club Discuss the Films of Rob Zombie on a New Episode of Daily Dead’s Podcast

  • DailyDead
He brought us into the home of the Firefly family, took us on the road with The Devil's Rejects, pulled back the curtain on the mind of Michael Myers, introduced us to the brain-bending music of The Lords, and played a deadly game of 31 one fateful Halloween night. Blending his love of horror with a bold visual style honed during countless concert performances, Rob Zombie's filmmaking career is one of the more intriguing ones of the last 20 years, and the Corpse Club eagerly emerge from their crypt to discuss the director's popular yet polarizing movies on the latest episode of Daily Dead's podcast.

In episode 19 of Corpse Club, co-hosts Patrick Bromley, Heather Wixson, Scott Drebit, Derek Anderson, and Jonathan James discuss the films of Rob Zombie, beginning with his shocking feature debut, House of 1000 Corpses, and ending with his most recent film, 31.

Patricia Quinn Interview: “I Watch ‘Shock Treatment’ With My Grand Kids Now…”

It was perhaps appropriate that I had a dentists’ appointment on the day I interviewed Patricia Quinn, iconic star of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and its follow-up Shock Treatment, recently released on Blu-ray. Its groundbreaking story of vicious medical procedures fused with reality TV made it a cult hit, though it never scaled the heights of its predecessor. She plays Dr. Nation McKinley alongside a cast packed with comic talent, from Barry Humphries to Rik Mayall, not to mention creator Richard O’Brien himself (pictured below with Quinn).

Though I wanted to ask numerous questions about her roles in Rob Zombie’s The Lords Of Salem, Hawk The Slayer, I, Claudius and Doctor Who, the focus was very much on Shock Treatment, so I began by talking to her about the movie’s unique narrative…

Thn: It’s safe to say the film is quite different to Rocky Horror.

Insidious: Chapter 4 Conjures Up Official Title; First Trailer Imminent

The British Board of Film Classification has unearthed a listing for Insidious: Chapter 4, revealing the sequel’s subtitle to be The Last Key. But what could it mean?

Thankfully, it won’t be too much longer before we have some footage to mull over; Trailer Track is reporting that The Last Key‘s inaugural teaser, which will likely screen before It this coming weekend, is officially in the can. Clocking in at only 61 seconds in length, this is very much a first-look promo for Insidious: Chapter 4, which is just as well considering modern-day horror films have a tendency to showcase too much, too soon via extensive marketing campaigns.

Behind the lens for this one is Adam Robitel (The Taking of Deborah Logan), who has been faced with the somewhat tricky challenge of delivering a competent successor to Chapter 3, after it conjured up a box office tally in excess

Interview: Dee Wallace Discusses Red Christmas and Reflects on E.T. The Extra-terrestrial and Rob Zombie’s Halloween

  • DailyDead
Being a mom during the holidays can make Santa Claus' job look like a holly jolly cakewalk. As the head of a dysfunctional family in Craig Anderson's Red Christmas, Dee Wallace not only has to worry about keeping the peace, she also has to try to keep her family members in one piece when a killer crashes their festivities. With the holiday horror film out now in select theaters, I had the great pleasure of speaking with Wallace about her multifaceted new role, and we also had the chance to reflect on her amazing film career, including the legacy of Steven Spielberg's E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and her experience playing Cynthia Strode in Rob Zombie's Halloween.

Thanks so much for taking the time to talk and congratulations on Red Christmas. I’m a big fan of your career, and one thing I’ve always appreciated is that you

Impressions: Keith Thomas’ Witchcraft Short Film Arkane

  • DailyDead
When it comes to witches and their representation in film, things have for the most part ventured into becoming pretty stale. With the exception of films like The Witch, The Lords of Salem, and Cherry Tree, genre films dealing with witchcraft, covens, and so on tend to fall into the stereotypical silliness that pop culture has put on the idea of witches and similar themes and figures. It takes something special to change that, to offer viewers a fresh look and approach, and thankfully, that’s exactly what we get with the Keith Thomas-helmed short film, Arkane.

Focusing on a couple with less than noble intentions of breaking into an elderly woman’s home to extract some of her blood, Arkane gives its viewers not only an interesting approach and aesthetic, but it’s a combination of beautifully eerie cinematography and a synth wave-based score that makes the film feel completely unique.

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,

"Twin Peaks," Episodes 3 & 4 Recap: Hell-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o!

  • MUBI
Twin Peaks Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering David Lynch and Mark Frost's limited, 18-episode continuation of the Twin Peaks television series.What's an FBI Special Agent to do after being locked away for 25 years in unearthly purgatory? Episodes three and four of Mark Frost and David Lynch's revived Twin Peaks, which aired on Showtime this past Sunday in a two-hour block (aside from September's two-part finale, it's all single, hour-long episodes from hereon out), follow our besuited, Black Lodge-incarcerated hero Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) as he reintegrates into modern terrestrial society. So this is basically Peaks doing Rectify, just with a sterile death row replaced by an infernal hellscape out of Clive Barker. Or David Lynch, really. What's becoming more and more evident as the new Peaks progresses is that the series is, in large part, a repository for Lynch's subconscious, past and present.

Artsploitation Films has announced that it has acquired the U.S. distribution rights to the controversial Australian horror Red Christmas starring scream queen icon Dee Wallace (The Hills Have Eyes, The Howling, E.T., Cujo, Critters, Halloween, The Lords of Salem).

“We are excited to release this over-the-top, deliriously entertaining genre film,” said Artsploitation president Ray Murray. “With its odd anti-abortion angle, it could very well be the first horror film of the Trump era!”

“We are thrilled to be working with Artsploitation and couldn’t think of anyone better to release such a striking exploitation film,” added Devilworks president Matteo Rolleri. “Red Christmas sits among the classics; it is kinetic, untamed and saturated in gore.’’
