Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural, has acquired exclusive streaming rights in the U.S. and Canada to 3 From Hell, the blood-soaked new chapter in director Rob Zombie’s vicious Rejects trilogy. The film is slated to premiere on Shudder in February 2020. 3 From Hell will join other Rob Zombie classics on Shudder including 31 (a Shudder Exclusive), The Devil’s Rejects and House of 1000 Corpses. In September and October, Saban Films, Lionsgate and Fathom Events presented 3 From Hell in select theatres, grossing $2.249M over 4 days. The deal was negotiated by Shudder and Saban Film’s Jonathan Saba.
“After more than 10 years, Rob Zombie has delivered. 3 From Hell has the grit, blood and bite we’d expect from a highly anticipated sequel to the crucial Devil’s Rejects. As we were with Zombie’s 31, Shudder is thrilled to shock and shake our members with the return of the Fireflies,” said Craig Engler, General Manager, Shudder.
In 3 From Hell, after barely surviving a furious shootout with the police, Baby Firefly, Otis Driftwood and Captain Spaulding are behind bars. But pure evil cannot be contained. Teaming up with Otis’ half-brother Wilson, the demented Firefly clan are back to unleash a whole new wave of death and depravity. A firestorm of murder, madness and mayhem will be released in this terror ride to Hell and back, in this long-awaited sequel to Zombie’s cult hits House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects. The film also features the last on-screen appearance of beloved genre star and longtime Zombie collaborator Sid Haig.
3 From Hell stars the regular Zombie line-up of Sheri Moon Zombie, Bill Moseley, Sid Haig, Richard Brake, and some new actors including Dee Wallace and Danny Trejo. The film is written and directed by Rob Zombie, and produced by Mike Elliott and Zombie. Jonathan Saba and Gregg Holstein are executive producers.
