Rocker-turned-famous-horror-movie-director Rob Zombie, whose films include "House of 1,000 Corpses" and "The Devil's Rejects", recently worked on a special project for the newly renovated haunted house at Salem, Oregon's Oregon School for the Deaf. The ABC TV show "Extreme Makeover" team worked on school's dormitory as well as on the haunted house, which is used as the school's primary fundraiser.A clip from the program, which aired last night, can be viewed below. "It's absolutely amazing to be able to help the school with something like this," Zombie told KEZI.com. "Usually what I do does not come into play, so to be asked to come do something to work on a haunted house and make it as scary and crazy as I could to help the school was awesome. It was a rare opportunity to put some evil to good use." More than 200 people bought VIP tickets to be the first to get a sneak peek at the haunted house. "I think what they're liking best is it's so detailed," Zombie told KEZI.com. "They seemed blown away when they went through, how detailed the sets were and the fact the walls and the characters were all animatronic and just flying off the walls everywhere. It's pretty amazing." All labor and materials were donated for the project, which is estimated to have cost more than $1 million.
