Let’s get one thing straight from the start: I love Rob Zombie. From his early days in White Zombie, his carnival-like album covers, concerts and music videos, right up until his 1st feature film in 2003, House Of 1000 Corpses. This was further enhanced by the excellent and gritty The Devil’s Rejects. Then came 2012’s The Lords of Salem a refined, mature mixture of his previous attempts that has not only made me change my opinion on where Zombie was headed, but also on what I now expect from cinema itself every time I sit down to watch a film with a low-to-modest budget.
John Carpenter’s They Live turns 30 this year, but its social commentary remains as relevant as ever. Fright-Rags have released a new collection of merchandise dedicated to the cult classic. Fright-Rags’ have also turned several horror favorites into Garbage Pail Kids for a new line of shirts.

“Boy, I bet you’d stick your head in fire if I told ya you could see Hell. Meanwhile, you’re too stupid to realize you got a demon stickin’ out your ass singing, ‘Holy Miss Moley, got me a live one!'”
Astro-Creep: 2000 was the final studio album released by White Zombie in 1995. Fast-forward to Astro-Creep: 2000 Live. Rob Zombie has returned to his songs of love, destruction and other synthetic delusions of the electric head, 21 years later – performing the album in its entirety at Riot Fest.
“Look, I know the supernatural is something that isn’t supposed to happen, but it does happen…”

“When there’s no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth.”
If you put all comparisons to John Carpenter’s 1978 original slasher aside, Rob Zombie has done an admirable job of trying to demystify the boogeyman. Micheal Myers is not the embodiment of pure evil, but rather a troubled and misguided soul whose self-induced isolation leads him on a killing-spree on Halloween night.
“Inside every one us, there exists a dark side. Most people rise above it, but some are consumed by it. Until there is nothing left, but pure evil.” PRESS PLAY ►
