To say the very least, House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects are vastly different films, one playing out like the comic book adventures of the Firefly family and the other a much more grounded-in-reality vision of the characters and their dirty deeds. With next year’s Three from Hell, director Rob Zombie promises yet another wildly different experience.
“The second was so different to the first one, and I wanted the third one to be different yet again,” Zombie notes inside the pages of Metal Hammer’s Horror Issue, guest edited by Zombie himself. “If you’re just retreading the same movie for a profit, that’s a bummer.”
Star Bill Moseley also offers up some thoughts on the third “Firefly Universe” film in the very same issue, though he’s keeping his lips sealed in regards to how a sequel is even possible.
“I can’t say anything, it’s top secret,” Moseley teased. “It looks like we are driving towards the blazing guns of the sheriff’s department and that’s the end… but we’re back! It makes sense to come back now [that] we’re entering a golden age of horror with the success of The Nun.”
The full cast includes, of course, Bill Moseley, Sid Haig and Sheri Moon Zombie, as well as Danny Trejo, Kevin Jackson, Wade Williams, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Clint Howard, Pancho Moler, Emilio Rivera, Daniel Roebuck, David Ury, Sean Whalen, Austin Stoker, Dee Wallace, Richard Brake, Bill Oberst Jr., Richard Riehle, Dot-Marie Jones and Tom Papa.
Three from Hell has been confirmed for a 2019 release.
