You’ve visited the House of 1000 Corpses and bore witness to The Devil’s Rejects; now it’s (almost) time to lay eyes on Rob Zombie’s latest creative effort, 3 From Hell. And it seems the long-rumored threequel has already hit the ground running.
Yes, after the carnival-centric 31 back in 2016, the director has returned to The Devil’s Rejects and its seedy universe, and it’s looking increasingly likely that the somewhat contentious filmmaker will be welcoming viewers on a trip into the fiery depths of the underworld in the not-so-distant future.
Be that as it may, production has now wrapped, with Bill Moseley – who’s returning as Otis, alongside Sid Haig (Captain Spaulding) and Sheri Moon Zombie (Baby), who captured the imagination of horror fans the world over with their performances across both House of 1,000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects – taking to Facebook to share a promising update.
Telling his fans that he’s exhausted but happy, the actor called 3 From Hell a masterpiece. Not only that, but he also assured us that our minds will be blown by what Zombie’s put together.
Here’s his post in full:
“Exhausted but happy, Rob Zombie masterpiece, 3 from Hell, in the proverbial can(nowadays I guess it’s in the hard drive). Great time last night, got all the shots we needed before we picture wrapped on the Valuzat movie ranch in dear old Santa Clarita, and now the trucks are packed and rolling, the actors all changed out of their wardrobe & makeup and off to new adventures, the sun’s up and I’m heading down the highway, my spirit animals, the Doobie Brothers, filling my head and heart with enough rhythm and cheer to get me back home to Los Angeles. It’ll probably hit me in a day or two what we did, the enormity, the intensity, but meanwhile, I’m going to eat a lot, sleep a lot, brush em like crazy (Beach Boys lyric).
One thing I can say, when this movie comes out, your guys’s mindsies are gonna be big time blown! Thanks for your thoughts & prayers (haha), Otis D.”
Also starring Austin Stoker (Assault on Precinct 13), Dee Wallace (The Howling, Cujo), Jeff Daniel Phillips (Halloween 2), Dot-Marie Jones (American Horror Story) and Tom Papa, there’s still no word of a concrete release date for the pic, but fans of Rob Zombie’s eccentric oeuvre can go on enjoying updates from the Firefly Family, safe in the knowledge that 3 From Hell is coming together quite nicely.
