Watch the First Full Trailer for Rob Zombie’s 3 from Hell
The full trailer for Rob Zombie’s 3 from Hell has been unveiled at last. And although it’s about a minute longer than the teaser we got last month, it still barely tells us anything about the narrative of the movie. Which is fine by me! I’m just warning in case you thought you’d see this thing and suddenly know more about the story than “It’s a sequel to House of 1,000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects.”
Even without a confirmation of the premise, there’s a lot of intriguing stuff on which to chew here, ranging from a few vague suggestions that the movie may, as rumored, take place in Hell itself, to drawing inspiration from both the Manson murders and The West Memphis Three, to what appear to be homicidal luchadores. The trailer also seems to indicate — again, as rumored — that the role of Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig) may be substantially less than it was in the franchise’s previous entries, while the new character of Winslow Coltrane (Richard Brake) will play a bigger part than we initially expected.
3 from Hell will play in select theaters on September 16, 17, and 18, each night with different bonus material. Get all the details here. You can also listen to samples from the score here. Tickets, meanwhile, are on sale here.
