Nothing in this life is more exciting than the idea of a new Rob Zombie movie. I mean, the man reinvented Halloween and who doesn't love those movies? So when I heard about 31, I waited in awe for it to come out so that I could watch it. I missed the advance screening but thankfully it has finally come out to the mecca known as iTunes.
This movie did not disappoint. The opening scene was beautifully shot, engaging, and set the tone for the whole movie. The film is about a group of rich people who play a game every Halloween. They take a group of people and lock them in an abandoned factory. They must stay alive for 12 hours in order to be set free.
It isn't as simple as it sounds, think of this movie as a horror movie taking the best parts of the Pest and Running Man. They take the surviving for a set time from the Pest and the idea of trained killer hunting you down in a maze trying to kill you from the Running Man. Rob Zombie gave us the horror movie remake of the Running Man that we didn't even know we wanted!
Zombie doesn't shy away from the gore. The deaths in the film are bloody and exciting. Some of the fights in the film are down right cringeworthy! This is a fun twisted film that any fan of horror or any fan of Rob Zombie needs to watch!
