Filming has begun on Rob Zombie’s crowdfunded new Halloween themed slasher 31, and things have now got really exciting as Malcolm McDowell has joined the cast.
McDowell previously appeared in Zombie’s Halloween films as Dr Loomis (above). In 31 McDowell plays ‘Father Murder’, the owner of Murder World for which the film is based.
A few days ago Judy Geeson (who appeared in Zombie’s The Lords of Salem) also joined the cast. Geeson plays ‘Sister Dragon’, who runs Murder World alongside McDowell.
David Ury will be playing Schizo-Head, one half of murderous team of brothers living inside Murder World. Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs was recently cast as Panda Thomas, with Elizabeth Daily (E.G. Daily) playing ‘Sex-head’, and Torsten Voges as the insane partner of Death-Head. Daniel Roebuck plays Paster Victor, an unfortunate participant in last year’s game of 31.
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.
