We have just gotten word that Rob Zombie’s latest, 31 has been accepted into the Sundance Film Festival as part of the Midnight programming lineup. The press release announcing the film’s inclusion also included a new still from the flick, which is pictured below!
We still don’t have an official US release date for the film but we will let you know for sure as soon as we learn more about Alchemy’s release strategy.
The film stars Lew Temple (Devil’s Rejects), Lawrence Hilton Jacobs (Otis), Sheri Moon Zombie (Lords of Salem), Malcolm McDowell (Clockwork Orange), Judy Geeson (The Lords of Salem), Meg Foster (They Live), Richard Brake (Doom), Daniel Roebuck (Phantasm: Ravager), Michael “Redbone” Alcott (The Devil’s Rejects), Jeffrey Daniel Phillips (Lords of Salem), and more.
31 is set in 1975. The project zeroes in on five people kidnapped in the days leading up to Halloween. They are brought to a place called Murder World where they must fight for their survival by playing a deadly game called 31. To win, the ‘contestants’ must kill their opponents over a 12-hour period. Their adversaries are comprised of a group of sadistic killer clowns. The title obviously refers to Halloween–the 31st day in October.
