From the visionary mind of Rob Zombie comes the horrific story of five carnival workers who are kidnapped on Halloween and held hostage in a large compound. At the mercy of their captors, they are forced to play a twisted game or life or death called 31. For the next 12 hours they must fight for their lives against an endless parade of homicidal maniacs.
The “31” Blu-ray and DVD release special features include a two-hour behind-the-scenes documentary and audio commentary with Rob Zombie. 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. For those who have previously purchased the digital release, the documentary will be available to watch beginning on December 20. “31” will be available on Blu-ray and DVD for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.
While Saban Films picked up the finished “31” movie, Zombie raised part of the money to complete it through crowdfunding. He told The Pulse Of Radio the campaign was a positive experience. “When I did it, I didn’t really know much about it at all, because I remembered a few people had done it,” he said. “I remembered there was like a Veronica Mars movie, and Spike Lee had done it, and I was like, ‘Ah, I don’t know, is this cheesy? Is this lame? What is this, do I want to do this?’ And as I looked into it more and more, I thought, well, as long as whatever I’m offering — it was like, ‘Okay, if you give this much, you get this’ — and as long as I thought the ‘this for that’ was equal, I didn’t feel bad about it.”
Zombie’s latest album, “The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser”, arrived in late April.
