ROB ZOMBIE's long-awaited and much-delayed film project "House of 1,000 Corpses" is finally slated to open April 11 in the U.S., with the accompanying soundtrack available March 18, according to Billboard.com. The Geffen album will contain five previously unavailable ZOMBIE songs, as well as instrumental tracks and selections from a wide range of artists, including THE RAMONES and country singer BUCK OWENS.
The new tracks include "Brick House 2003", a "hardcore" rendition of the COMMODORES hit, featuring female rapper Trina and Lionel Richie. Other ZOMBIE songs on the soundtrack include the psychobilly numbers "Everybody Scream!" and "Run Rabbit Run", as well as "Little Piggy", "Pussy Liquor", and "House of 1,000 Corpses". Also set to be featured on the soundtrack are classic tracks from THE RAMONES, SLIM WHITMAN, BUCK OWENS and HELEN KANE, as well as seven "horrifying instrumental tracks and terrifying sound bites," according to ZOMBIE's official web site.
As previously reported, "The House of 1,000 Corpses" was denied release by Universal Pictures and MGM, and was subsequently picked up by Lion's Gate. The movie was filmed in the summer of 2000.
