According to The Pulse Of Radio, Rob Zombie has posted an almost unrecognizable image of actor Malcolm McDowell as Father Napoleon-Horatio-Silas Murder in Zombie's upcoming horror film "31". McDowell's character is the founder of Murder World, where five people are brought after being kidnapped in the days leading up to Halloween and forced to participate in a lethal contest.
This will mark McDowell's third collaboration with Zombie after playing Dr. Sam Loomis in the director/rocker's 2007 remake of "Halloween" and its 2009 sequel, "Halloween II".
McDowell recalled for The Pulse Of Radio a while back the first time he met Zombie. "I had to go meet him in this restaurant," he said. "I walked in, I just looked around and there was Charles Manson, I knew where I had to go. That was it, yeah, but he's the most charming guy. He's totally the opposite of what he looks like."
Although Zombie does plan out his films in advance, he told The Pulse Of Radio that you can only map out a movie so much before you start shooting. "The hardest thing is, until the moment you're gonna shoot, that'll be the first time you've ever been on set, that set, with your actors in wardrobe, with a camera, you know," he said. "So sometimes things just look different. You know, you can visualize in your head, like, 'Well, this, that and the other thing,' but you get in there and you're like, 'Wow, now that we're all here and I see you in that wardrobe against that backdrop, it's very different.'"
A new Rob Zombie studio album has already been completed and is expected out soon.
