Rob Zombie‘s upcoming Halloween-themed bloodbath 31 will be released this fall, just in time for our favorite season.
It was revealed last week that 31 will arrive in theaters on Friday, September 16.
The news was first announced by Zombie himself on March 24, via Facebook.
Written and directed by Rob Zombie (Halloween/Halloween II; House of 1000 Corpses; The Devil’s Rejects; The Lords of Salem), 31 stars Sheri Moon Zombie (The Devil’s Rejects, Halloween), Golden Globe nominee Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange; Halloween/HalloweenII); and regular Zombie vets Daniel Roebuck (Halloween II, The Devil’s Rejects); Jeff Daniel Phillips (Halloween II); and Meg Foster (They Live), to be released by Saban Films.
Set on Halloween night, the film follows five carnival workers who are kidnapped and held hostage in an abandoned, Hell-like compound where they are forced to participate in a violent game, the goal of which is to survive twelve hours against a gang of sadistic clowns.
“31 is a treat not just to horror fans, but fans of true auteur filmmaking,” said Saban Films President Bill Bromiley. “The film is executed in true stylistic Zombie fashion. Rob is an unrivaled talent, and we are thrilled to bring his bold new film to audiences across the continent.”
“After meeting with Saban, it was obvious that this was the perfect home for 31,” said Rob Zombie. “They have a true understanding of the genre and how to handle it. I am very excited to work with them.”
