Rob Zombie was given the opportunity to direct a horror motion picture for Universal Pictures with a pitch that consisted just of a title– due to the fact that he hadnt thought the rest out yet.
When House of 1000 Corpses was ready to evaluate to test audiences, the studio understood how out there it truly was. He informed Joe Rogan that after the screening, he was informed his motion picture was “unreleasable”. Heres the interview:
To be transparent, Im not a big House of 1000 Corpses fan. I cant truly get into The Devils Rejects or 3 From Hell either. Thats alright. I LOVE his remakes of Halloween and Halloween II. Its cool to see those iconic stories distinguished a new perspective. I likewise comprehend that the Firefly movie series is precious by scary fans and I appreciate it. I believe Zombie is an artist and not whatever he makes is for me. Its amazing that he is putting his vision out there, and I hope he motivates more people to do the very same.
Zombie got the ultimate victory as the series has a cult following and has its own trip at Universal Studios– the exact same business that told him his film would never ever work.
