Rob Zombie is just a scary guy. There’s no two ways about it, the guy has a warped mind and a great sense of the macabre. As the front man for his band White Zombie, his solo musical career and also a feature filmmaker, Zombie has brought visions that haunt the most stone faced to life. Now he’s bringing his brand of horror to life, in ways that you wish weren’t possible.
Rob Zombie is teaming up with haunted house producer Steve Kopelman to bring three of his most disturbing films to life as haunted mazes this October in a legendary event that will not only scare the living hell out of you, but will rock you to your very core. The event will not only feature three all new haunted attractions, but will also feature a different musical artist every night. So far bands like Blood on the Dance Floor, KottonMouth Kings, and Andrew W.K. are all set to perform, with tickets going on sale very soon. More huge artists will be announced, with the very likelihood that Zombie himself will take to the stage at some point.
As for the attractions, this isn’t the first time that Rob Zombie has brought his nightmarish visions to life. In both 2010 and 2011 Zombie teamed up with Halloween Horror Nights in Hollywood to bring House of 1,000 Corpses to life. It was so successful in 2010 that the team brought it back in 2011. Now that the theme park chains have been cut, there’s more to say in the house, and it’s coming back yet again.
Here’s the full line up:
- Haunt Of 1,000 Corpses: This terrifying attraction pays homage to the 10-year anniversary of the exploitation horror film House Of 1,000 Corpses, directed by Rob Zombie. This extreme, traditional haunted house will take visitors on a walking journey through a recreation of the film’s “Museum of Monsters & Madmen” along with an expanded “Murder Ride,” confronting notorious serial killers along the way. This high impact, highly detailed attraction will use state of the art animatronics, video effects, costuming, sound, scents and lights.
- The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto 3D: Utilizing Chromadepth glasses, this innovative attraction will take the patron right into the middle of the irreverent world of Rob Zombie’s El Superbeasto2009 animated exploitation musical horror comedy film based on the comic book series of the same name. The attraction’s unique surprise entrance, brilliant colors, sudden chills and startling thrills, and salacious humor will make one scream with fright and laughter.
- Lords Of Salem In Total Black Out: This harrowing attraction–based on Zombie’s 2012 The Lords Of Salem independent horror film–is designed to twist the mind. It will accentuate some senses while limiting others. Fear of the dark, claustrophobia, and fear of the unknown will be preyed on as the visitor attempts to traverse this sixty-degree maze.
It sounds like a great mix of Rob Zombie’s movie themes with a huge dallop of creativity.
If that wasn’t enough, there’s going to be even more music, a midway and more!
The Great American Nightmare Monster Midway will offer outdoor screenings of classic horror films, a DJ, food vendors, beer, wine and spirits, and much more, with freak show characters roaming throughout the grounds each night.
The event will be 6:30 PM until 11:00 PM on Thursdays and Sundays, 6:30 PM until 1:00 AM on Fridays and Saturdays from October 10 through November 2, 2013 at the Fairplex FEARplex in Pomona, CA, just outside Los Angeles.
