BLOOD: Movie Review - Rob Zombie's "31"

Bowie V. Ibarra

Rob Zombie brings another one of his horror joyrides in 31, and you should check it out.

The plot is one of his more outrageous ideas about a group of carnies that gets kidnapped by a group of weird aristocrats who dress like their in a stage play of 'Tartuffe'.  These aristocrats hire a team of killers for the annual 31 hunt, where the killers track down and hunt the kidnapped folks in a strange underground boiler room.

The atmosphere is clastraphopic and dreary, which adds to the terror.  And as ridiculous as the set-up is, the actors are committed to the parts.

In the end, like 'Lords of Salem', the whole movie seems to be one big love note to his wife, Sheri Moon.  She is always the centerpiece of the story, and always seem to end with her in our eyes.

Anyway, while the plot is ludicrous, the story is fine and the execution by the cast and arthouse style of Zombie make it work.  Check it out.
