According to The Pulse Of Radio, Rob Zombie and Saban Films have released a new trailer for Zombie's latest horror movie, "31". The trailer comes in advance of the Fathom Events premiere of the film on Thursday night (September 1), which will take place in selected theaters around the country and also feature a question-and-answer session with Zombie, a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film and the world premieres of two new Zombie videos for his songs "Gore Whore" and "Get Your Boots On".
While Saban picked up the finished movie, Zombie raised part of the money to complete it through crowdfunding. He told The Pulse Of Radio the campaign was a positive experience. "When I did it, I didn't really know much about it at all, because I remembered a few people had done it," he said. "I remembered there was like a Veronica Mars movie, and Spike Lee had done it, and I was like, 'Ah, I don't know, is this cheesy? Is this lame? What is this, do I want to do this?' And as I looked into it more and more, I thought, well, as long as whatever I'm offering — it was like, 'Okay, if you give this much, you get this' — and as long as I thought the 'this for that' was equal, I didn't feel bad about it."
Thursday night's special screening will happen ahead of the movie's VOD premiere on September 16 and theatrical release on October 21.
"31" follows five carnival workers who are kidnapped and held hostage in an abandoned compound where they are forced to participate in a violent game and survive 12 hours against a gang of sadistic clowns. The movie stars Sheri Moon Zombie, Malcolm McDowell, Jeff Daniel Phillips and Meg Foster.
Zombie's latest album, "The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser", arrived in late April. He's currently on a co-headlining tour with KORN that stops in Hartford, Connecticut on Thursday and closes out on September 16 in Erie, Pennsylvania.
