The follow-up to The Devil’s Rejects makes it to the UK next month, reports Matt Edwards.
3 From Hell, Rob Zombie’s sequel to 2005s The Devil’s Rejects, will hit UK screens on 14th October with a Blu-ray, DVD and digital release.
Following on from 2003s House of 1000 Corpses and the 2005 sequel The Devil’s Rejects, 3 From Hell finds writer and director Zombie returning to his most popular characters, the murderous, ice cream-loving Firefly clan. Otis (Bill Mosely), Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie) and Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig) all return, with Richard Brake (who starred in Zombie’s 31) joining the cast as Foxy.
House of 1000 Corpses became a cult horror hit after bouncing between studios, going from Universal to MGM to Lionsgate. But it was the 2005 sequel The Devil’s Rejects that really marked Zombie as a horror director to watch for. Where Corpses was manic and cartoony, Rejects was grimy and bleak.
Zombie then moved on to a pair of controversial Halloween movies, the criminally underrated The Lords of Salem and the down and dirty 31.
3 From Hell is being released by Lionsgate. The UK release will include a director commentary from Zombie and a 90 minute making of documentary (Zombie’s substantial making of documentaries are always worth a watch).
