Fathom Events, Saban Films To Present One Night Screening For 31
Fathom Events in collaboration with Saban Films will present a Nationwide screening for Rob Zombie’s 31. Mark your calendars, the one night only exclusive occurs the 1st of September 2016 at 7:00 p.m.
31 is the seventh feature from musician turned Horror film director. The film found overwhelming financial support from the general public via two crowdfunding campaigns. By contributing Rob Zombie allowed Horror enthusiasts to be involved on the project from the ground up. Rob Zombie self-produced the film and stayed away from influences of major movie studios. This allowed Zombie to have full control of his creative vision.
The film had its world premiere at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. In January 2016 MPAA ratings hindered attempts for a National theatrical release for the film. 31 was branded with an NC-17 rating twice. After intense editing did the film receive an R rating. The MPAA stated the reason for the classification was as a result of; “sadistic graphic violence”, “some strong language,” and “bizarre sexuality.”
The synopsis to 31 reads as follows:
Five carnival workers are kidnapped and held hostage in an abandoned, Hell-like compound where they are forced to participate in a violent game, the goal of which is to survive twelve hours against a gang of sadistic clowns.
Attendees of Fathom Events one-night screening of 31 will also be treated to the following:
- Music video premieres:
“The Hideous Exhibitions of a Dedicated Gore Whore”
“Get Your Boots On! That’s The End of Rock and Roll”
- Never-before-seen making-of 31 featurette
- Q&A with Rob Zombie filmed specifically for the cinema event.
Tickets to Fathom Events one-night exclusive screen for 31 is available on the company’s official website. As an alternative, tickets can be purchased at participating theater locations.
A National release will follow the Fathom Events exclusive event. Expect 31 in cinemas on the 21st of October 2016.
