Rob Zombie Crowdfunding His New Film, ’31,’ Offering Rewards Including Movie Props, a “Lifetime Laminate” to Shows, and More
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Rob Zombie has revealed that he is crowdfunding his new horror movie, ’31,’ and will be offering a bunch of cool prizes to those who contribute, including autographed posters, a lifetime laminate to see Zombie live, and a gig as an extra in ’31.’ The rocker and filmmaker will also hand out exclusive props from his movies, including masks from ‘Halloween’ and big cemetery crosses from ‘House of 1000 Corpses.’
Zombie is looking to raise $2 million to finance the film via his new website RZ-31 over the next two months. “People have come up to me over the years and asked, ‘How can I get these props?’ ‘How can I come to the set?’” Zombie explains. “So I realized a crowdfunding campaign is not a guy on a street corner with a hat asking for money.”
’31′ will tells the story of five people kidnapped in the five days leading up to Halloween. They find themselves in Murder World where they are forced to play a game called “31″ in which the kidnapped person must face off against members of a group of clowns called “the heads” in a fight to the death.
Zombie also revealed that he plans to complete his next album before the end of the year. “Yeah, I’m in the studio right now,” he says. “I got off tour a few days ago, and right now I’m already working on the new album, which we’ll have finished this year. I want to have it done before the movie starts. I don’t want to come back to the record after the movie. It’s too long of a break. We have a ton of stuff written and, little by little, we’re finishing them up. We’re more than half done at this point.
