The first clip from Rob Zombie‘s upcoming Halloween-themed bloodbath 31 was released online today along with additional information about a special advanced screening of the film coming to theaters on Thursday, September 1.
The clip features Malcolm McDowell’s Father Murder introducing the game of 31 to a group of chained up captives, including Sheri Moon Zombie and Jeff Daniel Phillips.
Tickets are on sale now, via Fathom Events here, for the early preview screening, which arrives two weeks before the official opening date on Sept. 16 and will also include a sneak peek at the upcoming companion documentary that follows the making of 31, as well as a Q&A with Zombie shot during his current concert tour, and several Rob Zombie music videos.
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 will arrive in theaters on Friday, September 16.
