Still probably skippable for the moviegoing community at large, but worth the time of a hardcore devotee. There isn't a single enjoyable moment in this entire movie. The description as given by the MPAA notes "sadistic graphic … My comment to that is "who cares?". A little unsuccessful character development…silly villains that are far too easy for our heroes to kill…pompous ringmasters that add nothing and could have been cut out completely…it all made me want my $150 back.I assume there will be an unrated version somewhere down the line that I'll watch and re- evaluate, but I can't imagine it saving this waste of fake blood and Malcolm McDowells talent. The event included world premieres of the “Gore Whore” music video, a one-on-one Q&A with Zombie, and a behind-the-scenes look.[24]. This FAQ is empty. Zombie may not be working outside of his comfort zone, but 31 is one of his most impressive films to date. Quickly browse titles in our catalog based on the ones you have picked. 31 was made very quickly on a shoestring budget, and it shows in Rob Zombie's worst film to date. Veering harshly from the artsy and experimental Lords of Salem and the pitch black, gothic H2, Zombie crafts 31 from yet again another new branch of cinema, a more "fun" kind of horror. The description as given by the MPAA notes "sadistic graphic violence, bizarre sexuality/nudity, pervasive disturbing images and some strong language. Alas, most of 31 is just another quick-cut, shaky-cam exercise that does manage to force the viewer to look away - just not out of disgust, but to keep from getting a headache from the excessively annoying hand-held shots and machine-gun editing. As we reported back in January, Zombie did indeed make that promise…. Other than some interesting cinematography it's a vapid experience. Coming Soon. There's a problem loading this menu right now.

Was this review helpful to you? Whereas 'House of 1000 Corpses' (2003) had humour & a sense of fun as well as all the expected mayhem & gore, and 'The Devil's Rejects' (2005) had some imagination and a suspenseful momentum, this movie is just one-dimensional nastiness without any interesting characters. I would really like to have seen some actual investigation into the clowns and the ringleaders, there's literally no motive and no explanation into the game of "31". On September 1, Fathom Events hosted a special premiere of 31 in cinemas across the United States. Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 16, 2017. Personally, to me, part of the reason that I don't think that Zombie has grown as a filmmaker, or even found the same level of success as a filmmaker as he has as a musician, is the fact that he, seemingly, insists on casting his own wife, Sheri Moon Zombie, in an important role in, pretty much, every one of his goddamn movies. Starring Sheri Moon Zombie, Malcolm McDowell, Jeff Daniel Phillips and Meg Foster, this newest feature further cements Zombie’s creative accomplishments in the cinema world. Two young couples traveling across the backwoods of Texas searching for urban legends of murder end up as prisoners of a bizarre and sadistic backwater family of serial killers.

The biggest issue is how the sets just seem like a huge mess. It doesn't have as great a concept as the Purge, where you could have gone so many different places with the sequel. Maybe I will some day, if Netflix or Amazon Prime adds it to their sites. Cinemark 31 was exclusively released on Shudder two weeks before being released on DVD.

RELEASE DATE:September 1, 2016 (one day Fathom Event), September 16, 2016 (Video on Demand), October 21, 2016 (Limited US theater release) Like I said, it makes any of the deaths that happen before that, this film's most valuable resource, unimportant. Even on autopilot, Zombie makes movies that hit hard and leave a stain. The actors, at least on the villain side, are far better than the actors for the people that you're actually supposed to cheer for. It's time to play 31. How many times have you seen your favorite movie? The aristocrats are concerned that Charly is the first person to win "31".

So what gives? 31 delivers all the high-energy gore Rob Zombie fans have come to expect, but a lack of fresh ideas and likable characters mean only the already converted need apply.
