Clearly Rob Zombie has tapped into the potential that is the ever-growing fear of clowns within the masses, with the likes of his The Devil’s Rejects, but it’s his clown infested carnival film 31, which looks terrifying.
Zombie has been releasing snippets here and there from the film, and now we have our first look at one of the psycho killers, Schizo-Head played by David Ury. The film was entirely crowd-funded by Zombie fans alike, and then picked up by Alchemy for the rights to North American distribution.
Starring in 31 is Meg Foster as Venus Virgo; Sheri Moon Zombie; Jeff Daniel Phillips as Roscoe; Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs as Panda Thomas; Kevin Jackson; Judy Geeson as Sister Dragon; Jane Carr as Sister Serpent; Richard Brake as Doom-Head; Ginger Lynn as Cherry Bomb; David Ury as Schizo-Head; Daniel Roebuck as Pastor Victor; Pancho Moler as Sich-Head; Tracy Walter as Lucky Leo; Elizabeth Daily as Sex-Head and Torsten Voges as Death-Head.
Malcolm McDowell will star as Father Murder, the owner of the sick Murder World. Panda Thomas will be the manager of the traveling road show only known as The Venus Lux Happy Time Fun Show.
Five average carnival workers are kidnapped on the eve of Halloween, and taken to a secret compound known as Murder World. Once settled in, they are forced to endure a 12-hour game called 31 that involves the five being hunted down like wild dear by The Heads, which are a bizarre mix of lunatics that want nothing more than to slaughter someone.
