Following its exclusive arrival on the streaming service earlier this month, Shudder has announced that Rob Zombie's 3 from Hell (read our review) was the most watched, non-October movie premiere in Shudder history.
I find this to be insanely baffling, as I've seen the film receive so much hate from horror fans since its release. Personally, I really enjoyed it, but I guess what they say is true, "any publicity is good publicity."
"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."
In 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 also stars Sheri Moon Zombie (Lords of Salem, The Devil’s Rejects), Bill Moseley (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, The Devil’s Rejects), Richard Brake (31, Mandy), Dee Wallace (Critters, The Howling) and Danny Trejo (Machete, From Dusk Till Dawn).
