Wicked Horror has just learned that Rob Zombie’s 31 has an official home video release on the books. And it will be available in time for Christmas, in the event you had hoped to give it to friends and family as a gift.
31 will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray December 20, 2016 from LionsGate Home Entertainment. Special features include “a two-hour behind-the-scenes documentary and audio commentary with Rob Zombie on the DVD and Blu-ray. The 31 digital HD release will include a four-hour behind-the-scenes documentary with two exclusive hours of footage not included on the Blu-ray release.”
Zombie submitted the film to the MPAA at least three time before escaping the dreaded NC-17 classification. But he eventually succeeded in securing an R-rating and doesn’t feel that he had to compromise his vision.
31 stars Richard Brake (Ray Donovan), Lew Temple (Devil’s Rejects), Lawrence Hilton Jacobs (Otis), Sheri Moon Zombie (Lords of Salem), Malcolm McDowell (Clockwork Orange), Judy Geeson (Lords of Salem), Meg Foster (They Live), 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.
