The full official trailer for Rob Zombie's 3 from Hell has now arrived, finally revealing plenty of actual footage from the anticipated sequel. Previously, Zombie had released a teaser trailer, and although it helped generate excitement, it didn't give us much. Now, after teasing the full trailer in a series of sneak peek images released over the past several days, Zombie has unleashed a full trailer for the movie which should hopefully satisfy his fans this time. Fortunately, we can now get a much clearer picture of 3 from Hell with this "real" trailer for the upcoming movie.
The previously-released teaser trailer for 3 from Hell consisted mostly of clips from House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects. As Rob Zombie had been hyping the trailer on social media in the days leading up to its release, many fans were left feeling underwhelmed with what they saw. Ever since it was first announced, fans of the filmmaker have been looking forward to seeing 3 from Hell, but people seemed to be growing tired of waiting for actual footage from the sequel. Today's trailer release finally rectifies that, and should hopefully help hold us over until the movie hits theaters this fall.
3 from Hell picks up where The Devil's Rejects leaves off, bringing back Bill Moseley as Otis Firefly, Sheri Moon Zombie as Baby Firefly, and Sid Haig as Captain Spaulding. The deadly Firefly family seen in the previous movies must now see a judge to stand trial for their killing sprees, but it's not long before they're bringing out the bloodshed once again. Also appearing in the movie are other familiar names like Dee Wallace, Danny Trejo, Daniel Roebuck, Richard Brake, and Jeff Daniel Phillips. Zombie has also teased many "bizarre" cameo appearances as well, not limited to but including Chaz Bono. Those who've seen the director's past work know it's not unusual to see a myriad of horror stars showing up for special roles.
As previously announced, 3 from Hell will be heading to theaters this September for a special three-day screening event. Courtesy of Fathom Events, the unrated version of the sequel can be seen in select theaters on Sept. 16-18 with different bonus videos airing with the movie on each separate night. This includes a special video introduction from Zombie on the first night, a 30-minute behind-the-scenes documentary on the second night, and a double-feature with The Devil's Rejects on Sept. 18. A full list of participating theaters will be released on July 19 when tickets officially go on sale. Considering the anticipation surrounding the movie along with the chance to see it in its gory, unrated form, chances are these screenings are going to sell out quickly.
House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects are often cited by horror fans as two of Zombie's best movies, so hopefully 3 from Hell will do its predecessors justice. Everything we've seen so far looks great, so let's hope Zombie caps off the brutal trilogy with a bang. Most likely, there will be several.
