Last week it was announced that Torsten Voges had joined the cast of Rob Zombie’s Halloween themed horror 31, and today we have two more names added to the cast, along with a behind the scenes video posted by Zombie himself.
Voges joined the cast last week, and will play Death Head, and now actors E.G Daily and Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs have joined the cast.
Elizabeth Daily has appeared in or voiced well over 100 films spanning from the 80’s up to today. She will play Sex-Head, and Zombie said of Sex-Head and Death-Head: “These two maniacs are ready to get down and rip your face off,”
Zombie also posted the following about casting Hilton-Jacobs on his Facebook page:
“Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs has joined the cast of 31 as Panda Thomas the manager of a traveling roadshow known as “The Venus Lux Happy Time Fun Show”. Unfortunately the fun stops as soon as he enters Murder World.
Lawrence is best know as 70?s icon Freddy “Boom Boom” Washington from Welcome Back, Kotter and such classic films as Cooley High and Claudine”
After these essential details you will find a behind the scenes video for 31:
The Press Release:
Last year Rob Zombie broke boundaries and hosted a hugely successful crowdfunding campaign for his upcoming feature length film 31. We are pleased to announce that the campaign is being re-launched this month due to popular demand. “After wrapping up our first campaign, we were bombarded with late requests to be part of the 31 action. So here we go again! Time to join the bloody clown mayhem! Filming starts in March so get ready for tons of exciting updates on what promises to be the most fucked up film of the year,” said Rob.
31 is, in part, a crowdfunded endeavor that will allow Zombie’s legions of fans to be involved from the ground up with his latest project. “I wish something like this had existed when I was a kid,” Zombie explained. “I would have killed to be part of so many movies. Even being involved in the smallest way would have been awesome.”
Fans will have access to exclusive VIP experiences involving the film and Zombie’s music career. In addition to the wide range of VIP experiences, fans can also get their hands on exclusive merch and original props from Zombie’s films. Be on the lookout for the new campaign, which will be hosted once again at RZ-31.
Not only does this month mark the beginning of the second leg of online crowdfunding, but it will also mark the release of Rob Zombie’s first live album in over eight years. SPOOKSHOW INTERNATIONAL LIVE is filled with nineteen tracks from the highlights of Rob’s critically acclaimed US tour of 2014. Digital pre-order for the album is live everywhere now, and the full album will be released on February 24.
Besides working on his highly anticipated new film, Rob was also able to find time to hit the studio, and his new full-length album is coming soon. About the new album Rob said, “The new studio album is done! The last mixes were put to bed and the studio is back in storage. Can’t give you much info yet… but I can easily say this is my favorite album yet… no joke. Yeah I know every fucking asshole says that. But it is seriously our heaviest, most fuck up musical monster to date. One song entitled ‘Well, Everybody’s Fucking in a UFO’ is sure to be an instant Zombie classic! Not since Hellbilly Deluxe have I spent this long putting an album together. It was worth it.”
31 follows five carnival workers who are kidnapped the night before Halloween and held hostage in a large secret compound known as Murder World. Once there, they have 12 hours to survive a terrifying game called 31 in which ‘The Heads’- murderous maniacs dressed as clowns – are released to hunt them down and kill them.
