Okay so there’s still no trailer or official release date yet for Rob Zombie’s Three From Hell — wait, where are you going!? The great man has gifted us another image of a key cast-member, and maybe if we put all of the images he’s released so far together we can create our own trailer in our brains. No? Just me? Fine, well, check out the image below anyway.
RZ is being coy about when we can expect the third part in his Firefly family saga, but a trailer is (apparently) on the way. The Hellbilly is eyeing a Fall release for the movie, which might mean it’ll screen at Frightfest‘s 20th anniversary celebrations in August. It’d be a major coup for the fan favorite horror fest and would make sense timing wise, but this is all conjecture for the moment (still, a girl can dream).
The flick is definitely finished, as the man himself has confirmed, with the edit currently being done as we speak. The movie is set to close out the trilogy started with 2003’s House of 1000 Corpses. The Firefly family (Bill Mosley, Sheri Moon Zombie, and Sid Haig) are all slated to return, in spite of having been gunned down in The Devil’s Rejects (er, spoiler?).
Joining them will be a whole host of bizarro guest stars including Chaz Bono, Barry Bostwick, and Jossaro Jinaro whose character, last time we saw her, was running from the Fireflies while wearing somebody else’s face.
This latest glimpse is of Foxy, a brand new character being portrayed by the brilliant Richard Brake, who killed it in Rob Zombie’s underrated last movie, 31 (that opening, monochrome monologue to camera? Goosebumps). From what we can gather, Three From Hell sees the murderous trio put on trial for their crimes. They might even end up imprisoned for a time, judging by previous behind-the-scenes reveals. Fans have suggested the whole thing might even be a supernatural return-from-the-dead style take, which would be fun too (and not completely outside Zombie’s wheelhouse given the trippy Halloween 2).
Starring alongside the Fireflies are Emilio Rivera, Danny Trejo, Kevin Jackson, Wade Williams, Zombie stand-in Jeff Daniel Phillips, Pancho Moler, Daniel Roebuck, David Ury, Sean Whalen, Austin Stoker, Lords of Salem‘s Dee Wallace, Richard Brake, Bill Oberst Jr., Dot-Marie Jones, and Tom Papa.
Three from Hell has been rated R for, “strong sadistic violence, language throughout, sexual content, graphic nudity, and drug use.” So, the typical RZ stuff then. Stay tuned to Wicked Horror for more info on Three From Hell as Zombie drip-feeds it to us.
