To celebrate the release of the next blood-soaked chapter in the most violent crime saga in movie history, Rob Zombie’s 3 from Hell, we’re heading deep into the untamed wilds of America (with a brief detour to Belgium!) to round up the nastiest backwoods butchers and most horrific hillbillies ever committed to celluloid.
There’s a problem with Rob Zombie. As a filmmaker he’s a conundrum. He’s a jigsaw puzzle, but with a few pieces missing and those missing pieces are what’s stopping him from connecting fully with fans of the horror genre.
Never has a director in the horror genre been as polarising. There are the people that see Zombie as an extremely creative talent and there are the ones that absolutely despise him
“The evil returns.”

‘There’s a few things I’d like to get off my mind before I go’ confesses the deep voice of an unseen man with a South London accent. Before us is a desk with three objects laid out on its surface; a reel to reel tape recorder, a telephone and an ashtray. In The Ingress Tapes we will hear the detailed and confessional musings of an unidentified criminal but intriguingly neither they nor their interviewer are ever identified, a detail which adds to the film’s overall atmosphere of ambiguity. It would appear that the tapes are first-hand accounts of a catalogue of brutal and shocking crimes.
“Fantasy, confession or evidence?”
Holy Crap. Dick is dead. Died last night after band practice, and his bandmates, Zeke & Earl, don’t want anybody finding out how. That’s too bad though, ‘cause news travels fast in small town Alabama, and these guys suck at covering their tracks. The authorities haven’t ID’d the body just yet, but Zeke’s wife and his daughter are suspicious already. From a screenplay by Billy Chew, director Daniel Scheinert expertly balances the hilarity and heartache of what happens when dark secrets are dragged kicking and screaming into the light.
“The night things went very south.”

“Death? There’s an app for that.”
There’s a very poignant line given by a therapist to character Arthur Fleck in the movie Joker that basically sums up its overall message: “Nobody gives a fuck about people like you.” The character of the Joker has been featured on screen four times previously, but this is the biggest change in dynamics than ever seen before. So too is the environments those previous incarnations have played in. This time around there’s no mention of superheroes or capes. This is the most grounded, gritty and most realistic take on the character and the city of Gotham ever.
“Put on a happy face.”
Take a train journey into terror with Jamie Lee Curtis in this classic slasher film from director Roger Spottiswoode (Tomorrow Never Dies).

“Experience the most terrifying ride of your life on the Terror Train.”
