Musician and director Rob Zombie has directed a variety of brutal, gory horror movies over the years–including two Halloween movies and the seriously freaky Lords of Salem. But for many fans, his first two films remain his best. House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects fully embraced the grindhouse feel of 1970s exploitation cinema and focused on a trio of psychotic degenerates–Captain Spaulding, "Baby" Firefly, and Otis Driftwood. The gang are now back for Three From Hell, and Zombie has released the first teaser from the upcoming horror movie.
Not surprisingly, the teaser is styled like an old-school exploitation trailer. It starts by reminding us of the three murderous anti-heroes, played once more by Sid Haig, Sheri Moon-Zombie, and Bill Moseley, and shows us brief clips from the previous movies. It then delivers the first footage from Three From Hell, including Baby in jail, Spaulding laughing maniacally, and a sinister masked figured firing a machine gun in a church. It doesn't explain how the trio made it out alive from the avalanche of bullets that met them at the end of The Devil's Rejects, but given the title, it could be that they didn't actually survive. Check it out below.
Three From Hell also stars Danny Trejo (Machete), Emilio Rivera (Mayans MC), Richard Brake (Kingsmen: The Secret Service), and Dee Wallace (ET: The Extra Terrestrial). The film doesn't yet have a release date, but the trailer states that it will arrive later in 2019. Let's face it, October is a good bet for this sort of thing.
In a recent interview with Metal Hammer, Zombie stated that the film wouldn't just be a copy of The Devil's Rejects. "The second was so different to the first one, and I wanted the third one to be different yet again," he said, via Bloody Disgusting. "If you're just retreading the same movie for a profit, that's a bummer."
