31 REVIEWED

“31” tries to do an insane amount of things in one movie. While Rob Zombie doesn’t quite pull it off, he does create one amazing role for Richard Brake. If you didn’t get to see the movie during its brief theatrical run, here’s the breakdown. Carnies stumble upon a Murderworld full of Killer Clowns. Clowns might be covering up Satanic practice, while picking off the Carnies over the next 12 hours. Blood spray and creativity abound.

Outside of the appreciation for creative kills and Zombie panache, the film doesn’t do anything. The setup is as old as “House of 1000 Corpses” and reliance on genre actors is only going to get the movie so far. What does that mean for us? Well, if you’re onboard for the Rob Zombie film experience, this won’t be different than any previous outing. However, even the most die-hard fans will have to acknowledge that this material is familiar to the point of being trite.

What does that mean for the casual viewer? Well, if you’re just looking for a Running Man style murder competition, this will do it for you. If you want suspense or exhilarating dialogue, then look elsewhere. I appreciate the ideas onscreen in this movie, it’s just that execution leaves a lot to be desired.
