From Revolver Magazine:
3 From Hell is finally upon us. The unrated version of the highly anticipated conclusion to the Firefly family trilogy — kicked off with 2003’s House of 1000 Corpses and continued with 2005’s The Devil’s Rejects— is set to hit the big screen in nearly 900 theaters on September 16th, 17th and 18th via Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network. By all rights, the film shouldn’t even exist: 14 long years have passed since The Devil’s Rejects’ release, and at the end of that movie, the series’ antiheroes, the new film’s titular three — Captain Spaulding, played by the great Sid Haig, and his wicked offspring Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie) and Otis (Bill Moseley) — are bullet-riddled and seemingly dying after a roadside shoot-out with police. Those temporal and narrative hurdles aside, Zombie says that, a year into preproduction and planning, the movie did indeed seemed doomed itself, after Haig fell ill. Instead, the rocker-director, who also wrote 3 From Hell, reached into his seemingly bottomless well of creativity and completely reimagined the film’s storyline.
The result may be “a completely different movie” than the one he originally set out to make, but he’s still very proud of it — and he should be.
