I'm not a Rob Zombie fan, and by that I mean Rob Zombie the director... but I was curious about seeing his movie "31", and on top of that, it's included on Shudder with audio commentary by Rob Zombie... so I thought... well, adding that human quality and methodology just might make this experience that extra little bit special I think it needs. I still only made it midway through, but without the commentary I wouldn't have made it that far.
I didn't think 31 was as good as it could've been and I was wondering why it was lacking when Rob hyped it up as possibly his best film to date, but seeing as how his commentary sounded a bit disappointed in some parts, I can see that it wasn't fully what he imagined but more of what he had to work with. Gave me a whole different persoective and I like the film more now.
This was so great. A peek into Rob's thinking process. Thanks for this!
I felt as though I was sitting with Rob while watching the movie 31...it’s one of my favorites from the horror genre. I have a new found respect for the movie after learning how small the budget was to create the film. Hope to see the next chapter of 31!
Another stellar zombie classic. You can really feel the limitations this film faced. It doesn’t have the full scope or aura that was likely designed. But you have to give zombie credit for still pulling it off with such limited time and money.
