It’s been a huge day for Rob Zombie fans who have been patiently awaiting the upcoming release of 3 From Hell. First, we found out its autumnal release date; then, we were treated to a brand new, horrifying poster; and now, we have further updates about its very limited theatrical run.
Zombie announced earlier today that his follow up to House of 1,000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects will hit 900 theaters via Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network on September 16th. But – and this is a big but – fans only have until the 18th to see it on the big screen. That’s right, you only have three days to see 3 From Hell and all of its gory goodness in a dark room full of horror fanatics.
The good news for those who can make it, however, is that each day the film’s screening will feature exciting exclusives. On September 16th, 3 From Hell will be introduced via a special pre-taped segment featuring Rob Zombie, and the first 50 people to attend the showing will each receive an exclusive poster. Those who see the movie on September 17th, meanwhile, will catch an extra 30-minute behind-the-scenes look at all that went into making it. And finally, for fans who catch the pic on Sunday, September 18th, you’ll get to experience a gruesome double feature of both 3 From Hell and The Devil’s Rejects.
The movie has been in development for quite a while, but was long delayed so the musician-turned-director could tour with Marilyn Manson. Regarding its upcoming release, Rob Zombie recently said:
“This event is a long time coming, the journey of these characters has always been special to me and I am thrilled to finally let the fans experience the next episode of the Firefly madness. This project was a true labor of love for everyone involved and we know we have created something amazing for the loyal followers of these films. Let the insanity begin!”
You can tell this project truly means a lot to him and hopefully horror fans will be able to share that feeling when 3 From Hell finally smashes into theaters on September 16th.
