We were concerned when Rob Zombie’s upcoming film 31 scored a NC-17 rating that would have made it next to impossible for the film to be shown in theaters, but after three attempts he finally got it accepted as rated “R”. There’s more good news, the first official poster for 31 and the first teaser trailer have both been unveiled for Zombie’s creepy clown slasher-film. Hopefully Zombie will release a new, more revealing trailer soon.
31 follows a group of five carnival workers, kidnapped just before Halloween. The group is held in a compound known as “Murder World”. If they can survive for twelve hours against a group of psychos dressed as twisted clowns, they will be set free.
The film stars Sheri Moon Zombie, Meg Foster, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Tracy Walter, Poncho Moler, Jane Carr, Lew Temple, Ginger Lynn, Daniel Roebauck, E.G. Daily, David Ury, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Judy Geeson, Torsten Voges, Bari Suzuki, Richard Brake, Devin Sidell and Malcolm McDowell.
31 has just premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. A theatrical release date has yet to be announced, but should be soon. AMC Independent has acquired the North American rights to distribution.
