Rob Zombie discusses 31 on Eugene's Entertainment Report
Rob Zombie discusses inspiration for 31 The Movie
Rob Zombie discusses Crowdfunding
Attention Psycho-Heads! 31 needs you to be part of the madness!
This whole crowd funding thing is about us making the type of movie we all wish we could see. Not a mellow PG-13 affair but hardcore R-rated movie you can scream about. Obviously the more contributors and the more contributions the purer we can be in making the film we want to make for you. But the main thing is we want everybody to be a part of it. If you can't contribute that's okay, maybe you can help by reposting this image and helping us spread the word. Everything helps. Gore Hounds unite!
Meet Death-Head and Sex-Head, two of the most vicious and blood-thirsty residents of Murder World. They have a perfect record of mayhem and chaos.
Welcome to my next film. It is called 31. It is the story of five random people kidnapped on the five days leading up to Halloween and held hostage in a place called Murder World. While trapped inside this man-made Hell they must fight to survive playing the most violent game known to man... a game called 31.
Who are the opponents? Well... a group of vile, filthy, blood-thirsty clowns known as THE HEADS. They come in all shapes and sizes and each grows nastier than the last.
What kind of film is this you ask? It is a fast paced, mean dirty film for those who like it rough. Get ready for a sick piece of celluloid! This is some hardcore business for the blood-thirsty gore hounds.
I’m crowd funding because I realize that it’s an incredible opportunity to engage the fans. They’ve always been the most important thing for me because, with metal and horror, the fans aren’t just fans – it’s their life, their lifestyle. They live and breathe it, as I do, and any way that you can bring the people that are as passionate about it as you are into the process is a win-win for everybody.
Friends and Backers of 31,
We are super stoked to see a whole bunch of you guys posting photos with your RZ 31 swag! The Twitter hashtag #RZ31 is blowing up with sick posts, including this classic:
And then some real psycho heads:
Be sure to keep #RZ31 going strong, we will be watching!
SHIPPING UPDATE: We want to let everyone know that the fulfillment company we are using has reported that they ran into some back order issues on certain items including the Directors Chair Bundle, Murderworld shirts, and iPhone cases. They were a bit late in relaying this information to us and everyone at Team 31 would like to apologize for the delay.
The fulfillment company has told us that back ordered items will be shipped by Jan 15th. If you do not get an email confirmation that your order shipped by the 15th you need to let us know! But remember - Scripts and Signed DVD/BluRays will be shipping after the film is released. You'll be the first to know when that's happening.
