Horror fans have been guessing and gossiping all over the interwebs about the movie’s plot. For some reason, it’s going around that the movie is a prequel to The Devil’s Rejects.
Wwwwhuuut? I have to know… have you actually seen his movies? If anything, House of 1000 Corpses is the prequel to the horrific trilogy. You need to watch House and Rejects “again”. I won’t spoil the ending, but the three that were left last in The Devil’s Rejects are the same that begin in 3 From Hell. Below Rob Zombie makes his comments on fans getting the wrong idea:
“It’s nothing [like] what people seem to think, which is always fun to read, because everybody’s like, ‘Oh, I know what this is. It’s exactly this.’ And they’re always wrong, which is great.
I’ll just say it’s not a prequel. I’m making this movie 15 years after the last movie, so my cast is aging the wrong direction and I certainly didn’t replace them with other actors. The one thing I will say is that when we got together — because my biggest fear of making this movie was the actors won’t have the vibe they had — it was almost spooky how much [they vibed.] It didn’t seem like it was 15 years later, it seemed like it was six months later.
I believe in this movie. They’ve taken everything they’ve done to a whole new level and I think it’s the best they’ve ever been. The general vibe was like, ‘Wow, this is like right where we left off.’ It was really kind of weird. It was something special when I made Devil’s Rejects. There was just a vibe we had at the time we were doing it, and we’re like, “Man, if we can’t recapture that, it’s going to feel like a struggle,” but right from the get-go it was right there.”
So with that… I’d hate to make a wrong projection but I’m pretty sure this movie is some twisted sequel. Maybe half and half. Who knows? Rob does. And he’s not telling. So no need to worry about it. Just be ready to see it in 2019!
