Lourdes Virginia Moran Poe (born February 11, 1989), generally known as Lovi Poe, is an award-winning Filipina actress, model and recording artist. She is the daughter of the late action star Fernando Poe, Jr.[1] Poe is famous for playing the roles of Kristal Maisog in the 2006 series Bakekang and Shiela Real in the 2014 drama series Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real opposite Dingdong Dantes and Maricel Soriano.[2][3]

She received her very first acting award as Best Actress in the 2010 Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival for her role as Lilibeth in the movie Mayohan.[4] The same year, she was also a FAMAS Best Actress awardee for portraying the role of Kath Asero in Sagrada Familia.[5]

Poe is currently a contract artist of GMA Network.[6]

Personal life[edit]

Poe was born in St. Luke’s Medical Center in Manila, to Filipino actors Fernando Poe, Jr. and Agnes Moran.[7] It was in February 2004 when the legendary actor admitted to the public that he has a daughter with the former actress and beauty queen making her and Senator Grace Poe half-sisters.[8]

Poe finished high school at the Colegio San Agustin in Makati where she graduated in 2007. She then later took courses at the International Academy of Management and Economics at Miriam College.[9]

Poe has since dated actors Cogie Domingo,[10] Jolo Revilla,[11] politician Ronald Singson,[12] Jake Cuenca[13] and Rocco Nacino.[14]

Career[edit]

It was in 2006 when Poe was handpicked by an international singing duo named Same Same to perform with them the song “Without You,” which is included in the duo’s debut album “The Meaning of Happy.” She was then first paired with Cogie Domingo in the youth-oriented show Love to Love. Her biggest acting break to date came when she was tapped to play the coveted role of Kristal, whose mother Bakekang, played by Sunshine Dizon pushed her to join show business as an actress in the hit 2006 TV series, Bakekang.[15] Her acting in the series gained critical praise and was named the Best New Female TV Personality in the 21st PMPC Star Awards for Television.

She was also a part of Zaido: Pulis Pangkalawakan as the newspaper journalist who is a friend of a policeman who turned into a superhero among with his other cousins, which is played by Marky Cielo as Alexis Lorenzo or Zaido Green. they played as loveteams in the series. In 2008, she had another biggest break playing her first daring role as Joanna in GMA daytime drama Sine Novela: Kaputol ng Isang Awit which stars Glaiza de Castro, Marky Cielo and Jolo Revilla.[16]

In 2008, Lovi won a New Movie Actress of the Year award for her role in the movie Shake Rattle and Roll 9 in 24th PMPC Star Awards for Movies.

She is part of the Gabby Concepcion 20-city tour which kicked off on August 17, 2008. Her “Bloom” solo concert at Music Museum is set for October 16. Bloom is also the title of her 2nd album under SonyBMG. She is also part of the cast of “Paukay-Ukay” of Regal Entertainment.[17]

In late 2008, Lovi starred in “LaLola” where she worked with Rhian Ramos, Eula Valdez and the late Marky Cielo. In 2009, she was seen in “Ang Babaeng Hinugot Sa Aking Tadyang” where she is paired with Prince Stefan.

In mid-May 2009, Lovi joined TV5’s youth-oriented show “Lipgloss” as Princess Ava/Sophia. Her home network GMA-7 previously did not allow her to join the series as per network policy stating their contract talents be exclusive to their network. Her manager, Leo Dominguez defended their move saying that “Lovi does not have an existing contract with GMA”. Since then Lovi has not appeared in any of the Kapuso Network’s shows. It was also reported that she entertained offers from GMA’s rival network ABS-CBN to become a Kapamilya talent after rumored boyfriend Jolo Revilla was named as one of the lead stars of the network’s new fantasy series “Agimat“. She was strongly considered to be cast as Jolo’s leading lady in the series until her manager decided to accept GMA’s offer to cast Lovi in the new sitcom Show Me Da Manny. In 2010, she became a regular on the GMA Sunday noontime variety show Party Pilipinas. She was supposed to play a role in the action-adventure series Panday Kids but eventually left the project, as she no longer liked her role. In July 2010, she appeared in the independent film Mayohan for which she won her first acting award, the Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival Award for Best Actress.

Diana Vickers (born 30 July 1991) is an English singer, songwriter, actress and fashion designer, who initially came to public attention as a semi-finalist on The X Factor in 2008. In 2009, Vickers signed a record deal with RCA Records and after touring with her fellow finalists from The X Factor, played the title role in a West End revival of The Rise and Fall of Little Voice.

Vickers’ 2010 debut single, “Once“, charted at number one on the UK Singles Chart and her debut album, Songs from the Tainted Cherry Tree, achieved number one status on the UK Albums Chart. Her follow-up singles, “The Boy Who Murdered Love” and “My Wicked Heart“, reached the top 40 and top 20 respectively. Vickers’ second album, Music to Make Boys Cry, followed in 2013, accompanied by the singles “Cinderella“, “Music to Make Boys Cry“, and “Mad at Me”.

Vickers unveiled her debut fashion line in 2011, and her boho-chic approach to fashion has received praise from British fashion media. She made her film debut in The Perfect Wave and her television acting debut in the comedy series Give Out Girls, both of which premiered in 2014.

Early life[edit]

Vickers was born in Blackburn, Lancashire, England.[3] She studied for A Levels in Theatre Studies, Classics and Psychology at Westholme School in Blackburn.[4] Vickers has been singing since the age of 11,[5] taking singing lessons and participating in local competitions, but did not sing professionally before adulthood.[6]

Music career[edit]

2008–09: The X Factor[edit]

In 2008 Vickers auditioned for the fifth series of The X Factor, singing “The Blower’s Daughter” by Damien Rice, after which Louis Walsh commented that she resembled a “little hippie“.[1] Vickers was selected for the live shows and was mentored by Cheryl Cole in the girls’ category alongside Alexandra Burke and Laura White.

Vickers’ live show performances attracted both praise and criticism; judge Simon Cowell likened her to Marmite, saying fans would either love or hate her unusual singing style, stating that he “loved it”.[7] While on the show, she often performed with bare feet. Vickers additionally gained attention for her hand gestures on stage coining the nickname “The Claw”.[8][9]

On her first live show, Vickers sang U2‘s “With or Without You” and Michael Jackson‘s “Man in the Mirror“, for which she received praise from Dannii Minogue, describing it as “box fresh”, with Simon Cowell remarking she was “the one to beat”. The following week Vickers performed Charlie Chaplin‘s “Smile” and Blondie’s “Call Me“, which again received praise from the judges. In week five of the live show stages, Vickers did not perform due to a bout of laryngitis.[10] She had wanted to perform the Mariah Carey song “Always Be My Baby“, but her doctor advised her not to, saying Vickers could do permanent damage to her vocal cords. This was the first time on the show that the producers had excused any act from performing.

In week six, Vickers returned to the programme performing Coldplay‘s “Yellow“, which received a negative reaction from the judges; Dannii Minogue commented that she did not “love the song choice”, while Cowell suggested Vickers was still not well enough to perform. In week seven, Vickers performed Take That‘s “Patience” commenting that she now felt 100%.

In week nine, the semi-finals of the competition, Vickers performed Avril Lavigne‘s “Girlfriend” as her first song and received positive comments from the judges, including Cheryl Cole’s comment that “she had got that sparkle back”. Vickers followed this with Dido‘s “White Flag” but was voted out of the competition. She performed a reprise of “White Flag”, however, she was too emotional to complete the performance.[5] She achieved fourth place overall.[11] Following the end of the series, she went on tour with the rest of the final eight contestants on The X Factor Live tour between February and March 2009.

2009–10: Record deal and Song from the Tainted Cherry Tree[edit]

After The X Factor, it was initially announced that Vickers would be signed by Sony Music under the Syco label alongside JLS and Eoghan Quigg, but this plan for her to join Syco was later dropped.[12] Instead, she signed to Sony Music’s RCA Records.[13] She began work on her debut album in January 2009,[14] commenting that it would not be rushed and that it would be “Diana style”. She worked with Cathy Dennis, Eg White, Nerina Pallot, Ellie Goulding, Guy Sigsworth, Chris Braide, Savan Kotecha, Starsmith, Patrick Wolf, and Dev Hynes.[15]

Vickers performing live in 2010

In March 2010, Vickers’ first leg of the Songs from the Tainted Cherry Tree Tour took place,[16] followed by a second leg in May 2010 to coincide with the release of her debut album, Songs from the Tainted Cherry Tree, which charted at number one on the UK Albums Chart.[17] Songs from the Tainted Cherry Tree has since been certified gold by the BPI for sales of 100,000 copies.[18] Vickers’ debut single, “Once“, was written by Cathy Dennis and Eg White and produced by Mike Spencer. The track was released in the United Kingdom in April 2010[19] and playlisted on Radio 1,[20][21] where Vickers performed an acoustic version of “Once” and a cover of Snow Patrol‘s “Just Say Yes” for the Live Lounge. “Once” entered the UK Singles Chart at number one.[22]The Boy Who Murdered Love“, written and produced by Chris Braide (with lyric contribution from Vickers),[23] was released as the second single and charted at number 36 in the UK. During mid 2010, Vickers performed at numerous music festivals such as the Freedom Festival, iTunes Festival, Oxygen Festival, Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Summer Sundae, T in the Park, T4 on the Beach, and V Festival.[24][25][26] Vickers also supported Mika at the Eden Sessions in June 2010.[27]

Vickers’ third single was a previously unheard track titled “My Wicked Heart“, co-written by Vickers and producers Dee Adams and James Earp, which features Vickers playing the trumpet. The single was released in October 2010 and reached number 13 in the UK; the same month, it was reported that Red Hot Chili Peppers was considering legal action over similarities between the chorus of the band’s well known song “Under the Bridge” and “My Wicked Heart”. Vickers said in an interview that she had been listening to “Under the Bridge” shortly before working on “My Wicked Heart” and had noticed but decided to ignore the similarities.[28] In an interview to promote the single, Vickers announced the possibility of Songs from the Tainted Cherry Tree getting a solely digital download re-release, and also stated, “I’ve been writing so much and got so many tracks under my belt. I think I’m very close to ready for the second album actually.”[29] The fourth leg of the Songs from the Tainted Cherry Tree Tour began in November 2010 and included dates in Ireland as well as the UK. At the end of 2010, Vickers became RCA’s highest grossing domestic artist.[30]

2011–13: Music to Make Boys Cry and side projects[edit]

In June 2010, Vickers announced that she had started preparing songs for a second album.[31] She co-wrote material with musicians such as Nerina Pallot, Eg White, Starsmith, Chris Braide, and Dee Adam.[32] In January 2011, Vickers travelled to Los Angeles, United States, to co-write material with John Shanks and Diane Warren, and played her debut USA gig at Cherry Pop in West Hollywood (promoted via Perez Hilton).[33] In March 2011, it was announced that she had also been collaborating with Starsailor front-man James Walsh, indicating a heavier and rockier direction for her second album.[34]

Vickers co-wrote the 2011 Enrique Iglesias and Jennifer Lopez single “Mouth 2 Mouth” for Iglesias’s reissue album Euphoria Reloaded.[35]

In June 2011, Vickers revealed on her official Tumblr account that she had parted company with RCA Records due to creative differences.[36] It was later reported that her departure was due to wanting to pursue a more indie, less commercial route,[36] coupled with a breakdown in her professional relationship with Sony Music due to the departure from RCA Records of Craig Logan, who had originally signed Vickers to the label.[37] Vickers released two new tracks, “Music to Make Boys Cry” and “Kiss of a Bullet”, for free download online in December 2011.[38] In February 2012, she showcased material from her second album in a mini-tour at The Ruby Lounge in Manchester and Cargo in Shoreditch, London.[39] She signed a worldwide record deal with So Recordings in early 2013.[37][40]

The lead single, “Cinderella“, was released in July 2013 and charted in the top 20 of the UK Indie Chart;[44][45] the second single, “Music to Make Boys Cry”, coincided with the album’s release in September.[46] Vickers promoted the album during the 2013 music festival season with appearances at Festival Too, Liverpool International Music Festival, T in the Park, and V Festival; for some of these performances she opened for fellow The X Factor alumnus Olly Murs. The third single from Music to Make Boys Cry, “Mad at Me”, was released in December.[47]

In 2013, Vickers appeared as the lead in a music video for the single “Derail” by Leeds rock band Dinosaur Pile-Up.

Artistry[edit]

Vickers’ musical style includes simple folk-tinged, keyboard and guitar based ballads[51] to more up-tempo indie rock and synth-based songs with full band backing.[52] Her musical style has been compared to Kate Bush,[53] Ellie Goulding,[54] Dido,[55] and Dolores O’Riordan.[56] Vickers additionally showcases an idiosyncratic style of singing described as breathy, raspy and hiccupy.[57][58][59] Vickers has cited an array of influences including Florence + The Machine, Kate Bush, Regina Spektor, Kings of Leon, Frou Frou, Sinéad O’Connor and The Sundays.[60] Vickers commented on her musical style and debut album, Songs from the Tainted Cherry Tree (2010), saying:

Right from the start they [RCA Records] were interested in the fact that I wrote lyrics, I could play more than one instrument and that I wanted to make a record that could have only been made by me. It was important with me to be completely open with co-writers.[61]

For her album Music to Make the Boys Cry (2013), Vickers initially described her new musical direction as “sexy”, “adventurous” and influenced by indie and rock music, citing the works of The xx, The Doors, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and Björk.[62] Later she described the album as “Kylie-esque” and inspired by 1980s acts including Blondie, Cyndi Lauper, and Madonna,[63] saying she had “got to the core of who I am as an artist […] [my music is] more mature and sophisticated and feels like there’s more of a structure and consistent vibe to it”.[64]

Other ventures[edit]

Acting career[edit]

This young girl is a natural actress. The moment she read the part, it was magic. A frisson ran through the room. Diana Vickers is the real deal. She is Little Voice.
—  Jim Cartwright on Vickers[65]

Sheri Moon Zombie (born Sheri Lyn Skurkis; September 26, 1970) is an American actress, model, dancer and fashion designer. She legally changed her name to Sheri Moon and later Sheri Moon Zombie after she married her longtime boyfriend Rob Zombie. She has been described as a “scream queen” for her various roles in Zombie’s horror films.[1]

Early life[edit]

Moon was born in California, but was raised in Connecticut. She graduated from Plainville High School in Plainville, Connecticut. She has one brother.[2] After graduation she moved to Los Angeles, California; however she soon found herself moving between homes in both states to attend school and seek work.[3]

Career[edit]

Moon had aspirations to do cartoon voice-overs and took classes.[4] She briefly attended the Connecticut School of Broadcasting to become an MTV VJ,[5] but Moon found herself preoccupied going on tour with Rob Zombie. When Rob Zombie’s band White Zombie disbanded and he went solo, he took Moon on as a dancer where she also choreographed routines and created costumes for the tour.

Moon has appeared in eleven of Zombie’s solo music videos and an additional four previous to that when he fronted White Zombie. She most famously starred in the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari-themed music video “Living Dead Girl“. Moon has graced the cover of the single for “Living Dead Girl” (1998), Zombie’s remix album American Made Music to Strip By (1999), and the cover of the single for “Demon Speeding“. Aside from Zombie’s work, she also appeared in Black Label Society‘s video for “Stillborn” and Prong‘s video for “Rude Awakening”. In 2003, Moon co-starred in her husband’s first feature film, House of 1000 Corpses, as Vera-Ellen “Baby” Firefly, but previous to that, she claims that she had never had aspirations of becoming an actress.[4] As Moon explains her character in that film, “Baby is the angelic-looking bait to get the victims.”[4] Moon starred alongside genre actors Sid Haig, Bill Moseley and Karen Black. In 2004, she had a brief appearance in the Tobe Hooper film Toolbox Murders starring Angela Bettis, the only film she has been in not directed by Zombie.

Moon reprised her role as Baby Firefly in the 2005 sequel to House of 1000 Corpses, titled The Devil’s Rejects. The Devil’s Rejects was financially successful, recouping its roughly $7 million budget during its opening weekend, going on to earn over $16 million[6] and better received by critics than its predecessor. Critic Roger Ebert gave the film three out of a possible four stars. Ebert wrote, “If you are a hardened horror-movie fan capable of appreciating skill and wit in the service of the deliberately disgusting, ‘The Devil’s Rejects’ may exercise a certain strange charm.”[7] Moon was awarded Spike TV‘s Scream Awards award for “Most Vile Villain” alongside co-stars Haig, Moseley and Leslie Easterbrook for their portrayal of the Firefly family. Following that, she was awarded a Fuse/Fangoria Chainsaw Award for best duo with her co-star Moseley.

Moon designed a clothing line, Total Skull,[8] which debuted at the end of May 2006. She explains, “The phrase ‘total skull’ to me means awesome, rad, the best of the best.”[5]

In 2007, Moon starred as Eva Krupp in a short faux trailer segment for the film Grindhouse, directed by Zombie and titled Werewolf Women of the SS. She also appeared in her husband’s remake of the 1978 classic Halloween, portraying Deborah Myers, the mother of Michael Myers and Laurie Strode. It currently stands as the highest grossing overall film in the Halloween franchise.[9] Moon reprised her character in the sequel Halloween II, which was released on August 28, 2009. Moon provides the voice for the character of Suzi-X in the animated film The Haunted World of El Superbeasto, written and produced by her husband, Zombie. In 2010, she guest-starred on the series CSI: Miami in the episode “L.A.”, which was directed by her husband.[10]

Personal life[edit]

On October 31, 2002 she married heavy metal musician and film director Rob Zombie after almost 9 years of dating.

Acting career[edit]

Voice acting[edit]

She has voiced television characters such as Tommy Pickles in Rugrats and its spin-off All Grown Up!, Buttercup in The Powerpuff Girls, Rudy Tabootie in ChalkZone, and Freefall / Roxy Spaulding in the film Gen¹³ and Private Isabel “Dizzy” Flores in Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles. She provided the voice for the title role in the live action feature film Babe: Pig in the City, replacing Christine Cavanaugh. More recently in 2013 she began doing the voice of Julius Jr. on the self-titled Nick Jr. television show.

In a 2000 article from LA Weekly, in reference to how she portrays Buttercup on The Powerpuff Girls, Daily says: “Spicy Buttercup is feisty. She’s passionate about things, and a little bit aggressive I get to rage out every now and then. You have to be pretty contained a lot of the time, and Buttercup sometimes gets a little leaky.”[1]

Live acting[edit]

Besides doing voice-overs, Daily has acted in film and on TV. She played Sandy Burns on the PBS series The Righteous Apples from 1980 to 1981. In 1985, she starred as Dottie in the cult classic Pee-wee’s Big Adventure as well as Loryn in Valley Girl and as a singer in the cult comedy Better Off Dead. She also appeared on such shows as Laverne & Shirley, CHiPs, Fame and Friends. She was also in the video for Rod Stewart‘s song “Young Turks” as Patti, one of the runaway teens.[2] She has been cast in several Rob Zombie films, most recently in 2015 as Sex-Head in Rob Zombie‘s 31, [3] the woman on the side of Torsten Voges, who plays Death-Head.[4]

Stand-up comic[edit]

Daily created and performed a one-woman stand-up comedy tour about the ups and downs of her career and life.[citation needed]

Singing career[edit]

Daily signed with A&M Records in 1985, working with Madonna‘s frequent collaborators John “Jellybean” Benitez and Stephen Bray. In 1986, that label released the R&B/Rock single “Say It, Say It“. The song made it to No. 70 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the No. 1 spot on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. (Other versions of the song appeared as early as 1981). Her songs “Shake It Up” and “I’m Hot Tonight” were included in the soundtrack to the film Scarface. Those same songs were later included in the lineup of fictional radio station Flashback 95.6 FM in the Grand Theft Auto III video game. They were also included in the Scarface: The World Is Yours video game, based on the 1983 film. Her hit “Love in the Shadows” was featured in the films Thief of Hearts and Circuit.

Also in 1985, she provided back-up vocals for The Human League front-man Philip Oakey‘s debut solo album, Philip Oakey & Giorgio Moroder.[5] That same year she appeared in the comedy film Better Off Dead, singing the songs “One Way Love (Better Off Dead)” and “A Little Luck” as a member of a band performing at a high school dance. Both songs were included on the soundtrack album credited to E.G. Daily. She performed a song on The Breakfast Club soundtrack called “Waiting”.

In 1987, she released the song “Mind Over Matter”, which is featured in the film Summer School. Daily plays guitar, harmonica, keyboards, and percussion instruments. In her 1988 song, “Some People”, from her Lace Around the Wound album, produced by Lotti Golden and Tommy Faragher, she plays guitar and harmonica. In 1999, she released her third studio album Tearing Down the Walls.

Daily released a song titled “Changing Faces” in 2003. The song was used on the end credits of Rugrats Go Wild. She also released a single titled “Beautiful” which she made available through iTunes on April 29, 2008. She also sang the song “Dawn’s Theme”, which was used at the end of the movie Streets. From 2003 to 2011, Daily did the voice-over of Jake Harper singing the Two and a Half Men song.

Her genres are country, dance, pop and rock.

The Voice[edit]

In fall 2013, Daily sang as a contestant on the fifth season of the NBC reality show The Voice. In the blind audition broadcast on September 24, 2013, she sang “Breathe” from Faith Hill. Two of the four judges on the show, Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green, turned around their chairs for her. She chose to be on Team Blake.

Daily proceeded to win her battle in the shows battle round’s singing the song “Something to Talk About“. She lost in the Knockout Rounds, with a performance of Bonnie Raitt‘s, “I Can’t Make You Love Me“.

Personal life[edit]

Daily was dating actor Jon-Erik Hexum of the television show Cover Up at the time of his death. Daily was married to Rick Salomon from 1995 to 2000.[citation needed] They had two daughters, Hunter (born in 1996) and Tyson (born in 1998).[6]

31 is a 2016 American horror film written and directed by Rob Zombie, and starring an ensemble cast featuring Sheri Moon Zombie, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Meg Foster, Richard Brake, Malcolm McDowell, Judy Geeson, and Jane Carr. The film revolves around five carnival workers’ survival playing a game called “31” while evading murderers known as “The Heads” dressed as clowns that have names reflecting their various personalities.

The film was crowdfunded online twice at fanbacked.com.[6] At a test screening, Zombie compared 31 to his 2005 film The Devil’s Rejects.[7]

Plot[edit]

During Halloween 1976, a group of carnival workers, Charly, Venus, Panda, Levon, and Roscoe, are attacked and taken to a strange, large building where three elderly people wearing aristocratic clothes, powdered wigs and make up, Sister Dragon, Sister Serpent, and their leader Father Napoleon-Horatio-Silas Murder, tell them that they are going to play the game “31” and that it will last for the next 12 hours. The group is placed in a series of maze-like set of rooms, where they must defend themselves against the “Heads”, several murderous clowns who intend to torture and murder them, all the while the group are given odds for their survival and bets are placed on them.

The protagonists come across five “Heads”, Sick-Head, Psycho-Head, Schizo-Head, Death-Head, and Sex-Head. The carnies eventually manage to kill their assailants, but not without sustaining their own casualties, with only Charly, Venus, and Roscoe left alive. The remaining three try to find a way out, but only manage to get one of their number—Venus—trapped inside a boiler room, where she is brutally murdered by the final Head, Doom-Head, who was brought in by the aristocrats to join the game. Doom-Head taunts Charly and Roscoe, telling them that the doors have been opened to the outside world.

The two manage to make it to one of the exits, however Roscoe urges Charly to go on without him, as the night’s event has left him too severely wounded to progress. Roscoe is then stabbed to death by Doom-Head. Charly, who made it outside but found herself in the middle of nowhere, makes her way into an abandoned house where she is ambushed by Doom-Head. He almost overtakes her, however Doom-Head is stopped by the aristocrats, who tell him that time has run out and Charly must go free. This doesn’t satisfy Doom-Head and the film ends with Charly walking down an isolated road while a van is driving behind her. The driver, revealed to be Doom-Head, gets out and walks towards Charly as the two prepare for one last confrontation as the film ends, leaving their fates unknown.

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

Plans to create 31 were first announced in May 2014 via a teaser poster that showed the words “a Rob Zombie film”, a bloody clown face, and the number “31”.[9] Fans and media outlets speculated that the film would be a third film in the House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects universe and would follow Sid Haig‘s character Captain Spaulding, that it could be a film centering upon serial killer John Wayne Gacy, or that it would be a third film in Zombie’s rebooted Halloween film series.[10] Zombie commented on the speculation, stating that it would not follow Captain Spaulding and would be an original story and was not based on any previous work.[11] He also noted that 31 referred to October 31, Halloween.[11] In July, Zombie announced the plot of 31, which follows a group of five people that are forced to participate in a gruesome game called “31”.[12] Zombie also stated that he would use crowdfunding to cover part of the movie’s costs, because “as the years go on, the game changes all the time, and a movie that you could get made years ago, you cannot get made anymore, because the business changes, things change.”[13] He added that crowdfunding would allow him to make a movie that might not have been otherwise funded traditionally and that “if you wanna do stuff outside the system, you’ve gotta function outside the system”.[13] Zombie later held a second Fanbacked.com campaign in February 2015 to raise additional funds for the film,[14] stating that it was due to multiple requests from fans that wanted to contribute funding.[15]

Zombie came up with the idea for 31 after reading a statistic that stated that Halloween is the “Number One day of the year when people go missing for some reason” and thought that it would make a good premise for a movie.[16] He also received inspiration for the film as he was walking around his frightfest Great American Nightmare and watched the employees work while dressed like chainsaw-carrying clowns.[17] Zombie has stated that he wanted to have a “very nasty, gritty, guerilla-style approach to the filmmaking” for 31, as it “fits the story and the vibe of the movie”.[16] Zombie began scouting locations in the summer of 2014 and initial filming was slated to begin in February 2015, but did not commence until that March.[16][18][19][20] Filming for 31 wrapped in April 2015.[21]

Release[edit]

31 premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival on January 23, 2016.[22] In March 2016, Saban Films announced that they had acquired distribution rights for 31 and that they would be giving it a limited theatrical release on September 16, 2016.[23]

On September 1, Fathom Events hosted a special premiere of 31 in cinemas across the United States. The event included world premieres of the “Gore Whore” music video, a one-on-one Q&A with Zombie, and a behind-the-scenes look.[24]

Rating[edit]

31 was submitted to the Motion Picture Association of America twice and both times received an NC-17 rating. The description as given by the MPAA notes “sadistic graphic violence, bizarre sexuality/nudity, pervasive disturbing images and some strong language.”[25] On January 5, 2016, the film was finally granted an “R” rating for “strong bloody horror violence, pervasive language, sexual content and drug use”.[26] Zombie later told a fan on Facebook that the “Zombie Cut” would eventually be released on DVD and would include the uncut version.[27]

Critical reception[edit]

The film holds an approval rating of 50% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 31 reviews and has an average rating of 5.3 out of 10. The site’s consensus reads, “31 delivers all the high-energy gore Rob Zombie fans have come to expect, but a lack of fresh ideas and likable characters mean only the already converted need apply.”[28] On Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating, the film has a score of 35 out of 100 based on 13 reviews, indicating “generally unfavorable reviews.”[29]

Much of the film’s negativity centered around claims that the film felt forced and unoriginal, with Variety writing that the “energetic exercise in forced badassery will be too silly and self-conscious to feel genuinely edgy, despite all the blood spilt and familiar taboos violated.”[30][31][32]

The film received praise from Bloody Disgusting which claimed “31 is Rob Zombie’s The Running Man and it works.”[33] Trent Wilkie of Fangoria gave the film a mixed review saying “It is violent and campy, with the requisite sex, blood, profanity and gore. But ultimately, it feels rushed and leaves one with the sense of an unfinished idea.”[34] However, Jerry Smith, also writing for Fangoria put it on his years “Top Ten” list saying “31 is a mean as hell, take no prisoners exploitation film filled to the absolute brim with mean as all hell clowns, carnies and by far one of the best horror performances of the year.”[35]

Shock Till You Drop gave the film approval with a caveat saying “Rob Zombie’s 31 succeeds as a throwback to the days of quickie exploitation movies. That’s exactly what it is trying to be, and what it is. So, if you want caviar, keep looking. But if you are in the mood for a candy-colored bacon cheeseburger of a flick with extra grease and BBQ sauce, 31 is for you.”[36] In a similar vein, Film School Rejects commented that “31 is Zombie’s mildly entertaining take on a stale and simple setup. You already know if it’s for you.”[37]
