ROB ZOMBIE's 'The Devil's Rejects' To Arrive In July

Rob Zombie's second project as a feature film director, "The Devil's Rejects", has had its release date moved up to July 22 from the previously announced August 12. The decision to change the release date was apparently made by Lion's Gate Films after a "killer test screening" on February 10 that established the movie as "the highest-testing movie in the history of the company," according to Zombie. "After the [test screening] they picked a small group of about 20 to discuss the film. 18 of the 20 rated the film as excellent and the other two rated it as very good. Hey, what more can I ask for?" stated Zombie.

"The Devil's Rejects" is the sequel to Zombie's directorial debut, 2003's "House Of 1000 Corpses". The rocker-turned-filmmaker has said that this movie will be much darker and nastier than its predecessor.

"The Devil's Rejects" follows "House"'s evil Firefly family as they flee from a cop bent on revenge for the murder of his brother in the first movie, according to Launch Radio Networks.

In addition to returning cast members like Sid Haig, Bill Moseley, and Zombie's wife, Sheri Moon Zombie, "The Devil's Rejects" boasts an assortment of actors long associated with the horror genre, including "Halloween"'s P.J. Soles, Ken Foree from the original "Dawn Of The Dead", Michael Berryman from "The Hills Have Eyes" and Steve Railsback of "Helter Skelter" and "Ed Gein" fame.
