Rob Zombie’s New Film Premiering At Sundance

Rob Zombie has slotted a high-profile premiere for his next horror film, 31.

The movie -- Zombie's seventh as a director -- will debut at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, which takes place January 21-31 in Park City, Utah, though no screening date has actually been determined. 31, which Zombie also wrote, stars Malcolm McDowell, Elizabeth Dailey, Meg Foster and Zombie's wife Sheri Moon Zombie.

The plot involved five carnival workers kidnapped and forced to take part in a 12 hour survival game in a setting called Murder World, where they're stalked by a group of evil clowns. Zombie financed "31" with two crowd-funding campaigns via FanBacked.com.

Zombie is also working on a biopic of Groucho Marx, tentatively titled Raised Eyebrows, and a new album to follow up 2013's Venomous Rat Regneration Vendor.
