From The Shudder Press Release
Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural, announced today that the Shudder Exclusive 3 from Hell, the blood-soaked latest chapter in director Rob Zombie’s vicious “Rejects” series, is the most watched, non-October movie premiere in Shudder history.
“3 From Hell is by far our biggest movie premiere outside the month of October, which is a testament to Rob Zombie’s enormous popularity as a genre filmmaker,” said Shudder GM Craig Engler. “The latest installment of the Firefly family saga has exceeded all our expectations, and we’re delighted to be the exclusive streaming home for the film.”
A firestorm of murder, madness and mayhem will be released in this terror ride to Hell and back. After barely surviving a furious shootout with the police, Baby Firefly, Otis Driftwood and Captain Spaulding are behind bars. But pure evil cannot be contained. Teaming up with Otis’ half-brother Wilson, the demented Firefly clan are back to unleash a new wave of death and depravity. The film also features the one of the final on-screen appearances of beloved genre star and longtime Zombie collaborator Sid Haig.
3 from Hell stars Sheri Moon Zombie (Lords of Salem, The Devil’s Rejects), Bill Moseley (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, The Devil’s Rejects), Sid Haig (Bone Tomahawk, The Devil’s Rejects), Richard Brake (31, Mandy), Dee Wallace (Critters, The Howling) and Danny Trejo (Machete, From Dusk Till Dawn), is written and directed by Rob Zombie, and produced by Mike Elliott and Zombie. Jonathan Saba and Gregg Holstein are executive producers.
It’s great to see Rob Zombie’s latest film getting the recognition it deserves. Shudder streams great stuff, month after month. 3 From Hell is a perfect addition to their programming lineup. Are you a Shudder subscriber? Have you seen the movie? Tell us in the comments!
