Writer-director-actor-musician Rob Zombie's best movie, and it's not even close, is "The Devil’s Rejects." Although it was a sequel to 2003’s subpar "House of 1000 Corpses," the film was a beast of its own and I haven't been shy here at WoR in my enthusiasm about a potential rumored sequel. Last January we were told that a ‘Devil’s Rejects’ sequel was in the works, and then we found a out Zombie was shooting it. So, not only is it happening, but its trailer has just been released, with the title "3 From Hell.
Sheri Moon Zombie, Danny Trejo and Bill Moseley are back in their respective roles. Now, curiously, we're all wondering how exactly Zombie plans to make Baby and Otis return for in this sequel, but the title and trailer do suggest a sort of purgatory for them. I don't mind the supernatural element, but what made "The Devil's Rejects" so good was how it felt real and grounded in a world where that kind of evil could very well exist.
Zombie's last film was the disappointing “31” in 2016, but a much-welcome return to familiar territory is just what the doctor ordered.
"3 From Hell" is set for release later this year.
