To no one’s surprise, Rob Zombie’s 3 From Hell lands an R rating
The third film in director Rob Zombie’s horror trilogy, 3 From Hell, now has an R-Rating courtesy of the MPAA, a decision that should shock exactly zero people. Zombie announced the news on his Instagram page, along with a photo of his wife, Sheri Moon Zombie, on set as the character of Baby.
“What’s Baby so happy about? Well, 3 From Hell has officially received an R-RATING from the MPAA for ‘strong sadistic violence, language throughout, sexual content, graphic nudity and drug use,'” Zombie wrote in the caption. “Yup that sounds about right. Seriously would you expect anything else from these f***ing Rejects?”
Along with Sheri Moon reprising the role of Baby, Bill Moseley is back in his role as Otis Driftwood and Sid Haig is returning as the iconic Captain Spaulding. Jeff Daniel Phillips will play Warden Virgil Dallas Harper. Along with the promise of bizarre cameos, the eclectic cast will include legends like Danny Trejo (Machete), Clint Howard (Solo: A Star Wars Story), Richard Brake (Batman Begins), Dee Wallace (The Howling) and Austin Stoker (Assault on Precinct 13).
Baby, Otis and Captain Spaulding went down in a blaze of glory at the end of the previous movie, ending plans for a continuing series at Lionsgate, which was eager in the mid-2000s for more horror franchises. It remains to be seen when the film will arrive in theaters or how the Firefly family will return from the grave.
The Devil’s Rejects grossed $17 million on a $7 million dollar budget back in 2005, and was a tremendous success on DVD. House of 1000 Corpses grossed $12 million in 2003 after being first produced in 2000 for Universal and shelved for three years.
3 From Hell is expected to come out sometime in 2019.
