After more than a decade of directing horror movies such as House Of 1000 Corpses, Halloween and The Lords of Salem, Rob Zombie is attached to direct the Groucho Marx biopic Raised Eyebrows: My Years Inside Groucho's House. The project is based on the book of the same name by Steve Stoliar, with Oren Moverman (The Messenger, Rampart) set to write the adapted screenplay. The director acquired the rights to this book himself along with producer Miranda Bailey.
It isn't known when production will get under way, but Rob Zombie is currently shooting his next horror thriller 31. He is also developing Broad Street Bullies, which centers on the famed Philadelphia Flyers hockey team from the 1970s, known for their bruising ways. It remains to be seen if Raised Eyebrows will be the director's next project, or if it will be Broad Street Bullies, which has been in development for some time now.Read More

Back in May, Rob Zombie announced his next horror project will be 31 with a teaser that touts his past achievements in the genre like House Of 1000 Corpses, The Devil's Rejects, the Halloween reboot, and The Lords of Salem. At the time, he offered no plot details, only to say it would be 'nasty and disgusting'. He hinted that it was not a Captain Spalding sequel or prequel, though a teaser trailer reveals a clown mask and horrifying laughter, recalling the auteur's most iconic slasher. Now, Rob Zombie has shared a production drawing that features men in skeleton costumes hanging out next too an ominous looking van.
Check out the concept art from Alex Horley, which the director/musician/artist posted on his personal Facebook page, along with the 31 teaser trailer released back in May.Read More
The summer movie season is officially over and the fall awards season has yet to kick into full gear, so we, as film fans, are stuck in a weird sort of limbo that consists of last month's leftovers and B grade schlock at the Cineplex this weekend. If you can't muster up the energy needed to see Vin Diesel in the Drive-In classic-to-be Riddick, you could instead crank up the AC, grab any beverage of choice, and select The Lords of Salem on Blu-ray or DVD. Even better, it's also available on VOD, which just takes a couple of clicks on the remote to enjoy!
Released in the spring to bewildered stares and mostly slack-jawed amazement, now is the prefect time to either see The Lords of Salem for the first time, or revisit its weird and wonderfully astute ways of creeping out even the most hardcore gore hound. Its one of director Rob Zombie's best efforts to date, and as it makes its way home, its sure to collect a strong cult following yet unprepared for how well this thriller works its way past the skin and deep into your brain. Its like the best kind of album, it only gets better with each new listen.Read More

The team touted hard-hitting enforcers like Dave "The Hammer" Schultz and talented skill players such as Bobby Clarke who lead them to victory.Read More
