Pretty slow news day, horror-wise. Since I’m following the progress of the flick, here’s some brand-spankin’-new conceptual art for Rob Zombie’s upcoming TYRANNOSAURUS REX:
If ya’ll recall, the flick’s synopsis is hazy at best, but seems to follow a similar storyline to that of the Niles/Zombie comic THE NAIL. So far, all we know is that the story follows a semi-pro wrestler (wrasslar) and his family being persued by a satanic biker gang from hell. Could be cool, and I for one am glad to see Zombie working on something fresh. I hope it’s DEVIL’S REJECTS good. Stay tuned for more kiddos.
Looks somewhat similar, yeah?
Ok, so aside from his work on the long delayed The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto, Rob Zombie’s also been working on an extremely secretive project called Tyrannosaurus Rex that, according to him, has nothing to do with the dinosaur. There’s a ton of speculation that the movie will revolve around the comic that he and Steve Niles did entitled The Nail, a comic that revolves around a semi-pro wrestler and his family traveling the country and running into a bunch of satanic bikers. Haven’t read it myself, but after reading up on it, I’m damn well going to. In any case, much of the news around Tyrannosaurus Rex has been speculation as Zombie’s rather Hush Hush on the whole matter, but he has just released some artwork for the film. Judging from this alone, the movie might very well be as kickass as The Devil’s Rejects.
