31 (FrightFest 2016)

PrintE-mail Written by Jonathan Anderson

On Halloween in 1976, a group of carnival workers (Moon Zombie et al) are on the road when they are suddenly stopped and brutally kidnapped by a masked gang. They wake up in a satanic abandoned factory, a playground for a group of sadistic Brits dressed as aristocrats (led by Malcolm McDowell) who initiate a game of ‘31’. 31 ‘is hell’ and the group have to survive the night, with each one being assigned a number and odds on them surviving. The odds are long, and so is the night. And so begins ‘Rob Zombie’s Running Man’.

Each stage has a murderous clown to escape (what is it with Zombie and clowns?). We start with Sick-Head (Moler), a small, Spanish speaking person dressed as Hitler. And he’s one of the more normal ones.  Of course, not all of the group survive as they also have to face Psycho-Head and Schizo-Head (Temple and Ury), Sex-Head and Death-Head (Daily and Voges), and the most ruthless of all, Doom-Head (Brake).

Not one for the weak-stomached, Zombie fans will get exactly what they expect – a lot of fucked up dialogue, gore, over-acting and general nastiness. You get the impression that a new game of 31 will be starting up next year…
