If you were to ask horror fans what their favorite Rob Zombie film is, it’s likely that they’d tell you The Devil’s Rejects – and for good reason. It’s a masterpiece! How could Zombie possibly top such a swan-song for the Firefly family? Well according to the man who brought the unhinged Otis Driftwood of the Firefly family to life, Bill Moseley, we may have another “masterpiece” on the horizon with Zombie’s latest 3 From Hell.
Moseley used the m-word on his Facebook page, when referring to the new film;
“Great time last night, got all the shots we needed before we picture wrapped on the Valuzat movie ranch in dear old Santa Clarita, and now the trucks are packed and rolling, the actors all changed out of their wardrobe & makeup and off to new adventures…”
Moseley goes on to say how proud everyone involved in the making of the new film is and also that a much deserved rest is in order, saying “It’ll probably hit me in a day or two what we did, the enormity, the intensity but meanwhile, I’m going to eat a lot, sleep a lot, brush em like crazy (Beach Boys lyric).”
Along with Sid Haig (Captain Spalding/Cutter) and Sherri Moon Zombie (Baby Girl), Moseley helped bring the Firefly family to life in 2003 with Rob Zombie’s feature film debut, House of 1000 Corpses. Two years later, they returned in the fantastically twisted, and critically acclaimed, The Devil’s Rejects, where they met their bullet-riddled end.
So what exactly is 3 From Hell? Is it a prequel or a proper sequel where Otis, Baby, and Cutter survived? Zombie has been intentionally secretive with the film and even a quick check on IMDB will yield nothing. So I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. Fortunately, Moseley had some encouraging last words.
“One thing I can say, when this movie comes out, your guys’s mindsies are gonna be big time blown!”
