In White Zombie, death feels inescapably omnipresent with images of crosses, cemeteries and headstones filling every scene. In one of the most unnerving shots of early horror cinema, we see a pair of pervasive eyes peering across the landscape. What’s so discomforting about the eyes is their vacancy and the troubling inevitability that they are undoubtedly watching us. Recognising these eyes from the film’s iconic poster we are instantly pulled in by the power and symbolism they represent.
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.
