In this special 2-part episode, the Freakshow welcomes the inimitable Rob Zombie, our first real deal rock star guest! Of course, the fact that Zombie is also one of the most singular horror film directors working today makes him that much more fascinating. He’s a horror movie fan turned heavy metal God turned filmmaker who has given the world such cult classics as THE DEVIL’S REJECTS, THE LORDS OF SALEM, the lean and mean remake of John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN and most recently, his psychedelic remount of the 60’s TV staple THE MUNSTERS. He never stops touring, he never stops creating and he never stops being true to his signature artistic style.

It is with sadness we learn of the passing of actor Austin Stoker. The Trinidadian-American was best known for his role as police officer Lt. Ethan Bishop in John Carpenter’s Assault On Precinct 13. Stoker’s over four decade career began in 1973’s Battle for the Planet of the Apes, and included roles in Airport 1975, Machete Joe and the acclaimed tv-series Roots.
Stoker appeared in Rob Zombie’s 2019 movie 3 From Hell as tv news reporter Earl Gibson.
Just heard of the passing of Austin Stoker. Was always a fan of his movies from Assault on Precinct 13 to Battle for the Planet of the Apes. Obviously I was thrilled to have him be part of 3 From Hell. His time on set was brief but fun.
