Heavy metal and horror icon Rob Zombie is set to return to screens to host a season of 13 fiendish films on HDNet Movies. Entitled Rob Zombie’s 13 Nights Of Halloween, the series puts the sinister spotlight on a different film every evening at 9 p.m. ET /6 p.m. PT, airing in prime time from Friday, 19 October 19 through to Halloween, Wednesday, 31 October. Rob Zombie will be on hand himself to introduce each film and provide his unique insight on their impact to the genre.
The 13 Nights Of Halloween’s lurid line-up is described as “bigger and badder than ever before”, kicking off with Rob Zombie’s avant-garde occult opus The Lords Of Salem on October 19, starring Sheri Moon Zombie, Dee Wallace and Bruce Davison; as well as the influential 1999 found-footage hit The Blair Witch Project; the original 1990 afterlife nightmare Flatliners, starring Kevin Bacon, Julia Roberts and Keifer Sutherland; and genre superstar Bruce Campbell in the beloved cult classics The Evil Dead and Bubba Ho-Tep, among others.
Rob Zombie previously told The Pulse Of Radio that it’s been hard for him to break out of the horror genre. “The movies I’ve made up to this point have been pretty dark and pretty much in that world because those are the opportunities that were presented,” he explained. “You know, the people that put up the money for these things know that if I stick to that sort of thing, it’s easily more profitable. So it’s a much bigger challenge to break out of it.”
