Episode 170, Rob Zombie’s 31 l The HorrorBull Podcast

Rob Zombie 31 Podcast

This week, the gang discussed Rob Zombie’s 31. It feels like a sequel that is not quite a sequel to all of Rob Zombie’s other movies. You can bet there will be plenty of white trash characters talking incoherent bullshit about things that don’t actually relate to the plot.

The plot goes like this: Some stanky 70s carnies get caught up in a web of murder hosted by a group I call The Antoinettes. They have to survive for twelve hours in order to…survive? I don’t know. It’s kind of a murky premise — and a simple one — but it gets the job done.

If you’ve seen The Running Man, Surviving the Game, or The Purge, then you’ve got a pretty general idea of what we’re talking about here. What separates this movie from the rest is that this one features some pretty specifically horrific imagery.

We ended up being relatively mixed on Zombie’s fourth(?) feature. Tyler ended up liking it a lot, but the rest of the podcast seemed sort of lukewarm on the whole thing. The biggest problem, it seemed, is the script-writing. Zombie’s use of the cliche hasn’t really improved, and it’s a real detriment to the film, overall.
