Rob Zombie brings ‘Twins of Evil tour’ to Houston by Andrew Dansby

Rob Zombie’s recent and upcoming sinister urges include a remix album, a new solo record, a film that looks positively terrifying and an eerie commercial for a laundry detergent.

Spookshow Baby!  Rob Zombie Cannibalizes Detroit by Adam O’Connor

The thing about Rob Zombie that many people seem not to understand is that – aside from having sold upwards of 15 million albums as a living dead rock star of epic proportion over the past quarter-century and helmed numerous films successfully – he’s really just a dude. Granted, his legal surname actually is Zombie, and yes, he utilizes every ghoulish trick, antic and mind-blowing visual and aural stunt imaginable during his live permormances – certainly providing one of the most incredibly dynamic and entertaining live shows of any modern musician (more…)

ZOMBIE-FIED! by Frank DeBlase

Rob Zombie’s brutal creativity is spread equally over his music and films. Both aspects of his career bleed with a visceral cult verve and classic B-movie horror. Zombie’s work is over the top.

Rob Zombie promises epic theatrics in upcoming Topeka show By Mike Krings

Salt Lake Tribune interviews the Twins of Evil

Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson team up for the Twins of Evil USA and European tour dates

On October 1 the Twins of Evil hit Salt Lake City for another show of sounds, sights and extremities.  Before the show both artists sat down to chat with the Salt Lake Tribune to discuss their work, staging and more.

Brian Hugh Warner — better known as Marilyn Manson — is now 43, and many dismiss him as a musician past his expiration date.

But when Manson’s album “Born Villain” was released in May, it debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard album chart and broke iTunes’ Top 10 album lists in 22 countries.

Those numbers prove that Manson, who will headline the “Twins of Evil” tour with Rob Zombie on Monday, remains a commercial force. (more…)

Rob Zombie: Animals Always Need To Be Protected

“The only thing I ever really care about is animals — animal causes. I don’t really care about people that much, but animals I feel like they always need to be protected,” Zombie told Samaritanmag, while in Toronto promoting The Lords of Salem.

It’s not like the filmmaker hasn’t incorporated animal mutilation in his films. Let’s face it — the guy makes horror films. In his remake of Halloween, there is animal mutilation (fake, of course). But in The Lords of Salem, he uses the dog as an interesting device for the lead character, Heidi, played by his wife, Sheri Moon.

Rob Zombie on His New Record, New Movie, and Why Metal Shows Need Girls By Lauren Wise

Rob Zombie isn’t out to terrify you. He’s out to blow your mind. He holds a number of titles: director, artist, musician, actor, writer, lover, and freak show.

Bloody Disgusting interviews Sheri Moon Zombie and Jeff Daniel Phillips

Sheri Moon Zombie in The Lords of Salem

Rob Zombies The Lords of Salem has had an eventful week. Not only did it receive it’s premiere at the Toronto International Film Festiva but it gained a distributor in the form of Anchor Bay Films. There’s been alot of press over the past few days and a good stream of interviews. Here’s a new one as Bloody Disgusting interview stars Sheri Moon Zombie and Jeff Daniel Phillips.

Whether it’s cast or crew, Writer/Director Rob Zombie loves to stick to a core group.

Zombie cleverly goes against our expectations and previous experiences with a certain actor and uses him or her in a refreshingly unexpected way. (more…)

Glide Magazine interviews no-bullshit visionary Rob Zombie

Rob Zombie is one of the most hardworking artists out there – he can’t sit for long and twiddle his thumbs in case he gets bored.  In this interview with Glide Magazine, the director and singer, talks about making movies, making music and what really scares him.

My Roots: Rob Zombie by Leslie Michele Derrough

Rob Zombie is a no-bullshit visionary. While leading White Zombie on a gory-fun trail through the rock & roll hemisphere, he carved up electrifying stage productions and music videos filled with fluorescently vivid images of the macabre while playing grungily catchy tunes; something that he continues to do with his solo band. Throwing his hat into the movie making business in 2003 with House Of A 1000 Corpses, Zombie found himself in a whole new world with more challenges for his creative brain. (more…)

Rob Zombie hits the right spooky notes with Lords of Salem

Karen Bliss of Rolling Stone Magazine caught a moment or two with Rob Zombie to speak about the music of The Lords of Salem.  Enjoy!

A short sequence of spooky notes is as critical as any character in Rob Zombie’s latest directorial endeavor, The Lords of Salem. The witchy strain lies at the core of all that goes horribly wrong for Heidi Hawthorne, the radio DJ, dog lover and former drug addict played by Zombie’s wife, Sheri Moon Zombie.

Rob Zombie recalls standing in his back yard on the phone with John 5, the guitarist in his rock band, humming ideas back and forth to get that perfect passage of music for a film involving a 300-year-old witches’ coven, Beelzebub and a blasphemous modern-day rock station. (more…)

Rob Zombie ‘goes for broke’ with The Lords of Salem

Rob Zombie on Going for Broke With ‘Lords of Salem’ and Why Making a Third ‘Halloween’ Would Be “Masochistic” by Nigel M Smith

Rob Zombie impressed many (ourselves included) with his grisly and demented sophomore effort, “The Devil’s Rejects,” only to betray many admirers of that film with his tepid stab at the “Halloween” franchise. After helming the 2009 sequel to that reboot, new film “The Lords of Salem” (which world premiered in Toronto earlier this week in the Midnight Madness section) finds Zombie back in non-remake mode with a gonzo tale that proves the musician turned filmmaker has lost none of his mojo.
