My Thoughts

I give this film a C.  I was excited to see this film as I loved his other two films (by Rob Zombie), House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects.  This one does have the sick and twisted subject matter and WTF moments.  It has plenty of blood and guts which I love.  There were some scenes that made you jump.  The film was a visual canvas. But, the story-line is lacking.  Don’t get me wrong, it may be one of your favorite films.  It just wasn’t my cup of tea and I absolutely love horror even the cheesy ones.  This one was just was not believable to me.  The story was all over the place.  You couldn’t really follow it.  Don’t let this deter you from watching the film and finding out for yourself.  Catch 31 out on Blu-ray & Digital HD December 20, 2016.
