Rob Zombie has released a teaser for his new horror film, 3 From Hell, a follow-up to his 2005 film The Devil’s Rejects, which was a sequel to his 2003 film House of 1000 Corpses.
While not much is know about the flick, it has been confirmed that the “rejects” are back. Bill Moseley plays the character of Otis Driftwood, Sheri Moon Zombie plays the Baby Firefly and Sid Haig plays Captain Spaulding.
In an interview with Loudwire in July 2018, Zombie said, “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.”
Fans of the movie can certainly expect the unexpected, as the main characters were believed to have met their demise at the end of The Devil’s Rejects.
Zombie also said that 3 From Hell is not a prequel, adding that his cast is aging in the wrong direction, and he does not want to replace them with other actors.
The filmmaker said his biggest fear was that the actors wouldn’t have the same “vibe” they had over a decade ago. But he was pleasantly surprised and said it was “spooky” how much they clicked, adding that it didn’t seem like it was 15 years later, but more more like 6 months later.
Zombie also said that he believed in the 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,” he said.

According to the rocker’s website, Rob Zombie, the Lionsgate film has been rated R for “strong bloody horror violence, pervasive language, sexual content and drug use,” so fans can at least know what to expect.
Other cast members include Dee Wallace, Danny Trejo, Austin Stoker, Clint Howard, Emilio Rivera and Jeff Daniel Phillips.
