ROB ZOMBIE's "House Of 1000 Corpses" Gets Dropped By MGM

July 22, 2002

ROB ZOMBIE's much-talked-about movie, House Of 1000 Corpses, has been dealt another blow as MGM has decided to drop the project several months ahead of its previously-announced Halloween release, BLABBERMOUTH.NET can exclusively reveal.

Details are sketchy at the moment, but informed sources have indicated that ZOMBIE plans on releasing the film himself in September. No further information is available at this time.

As you may recall, House Of 1000 Corpses was originally due to be released through Universal, but as a result of the movie's controversial content, the company pulled the plug on it prior to its originally-projected June 2001 release.

The $7 million House of 1000 Corpses, which was reportedly edited down to an R rating for MGM, will be accompanied by a soundtrack that will feature new material co-penned by ZOMBIE and longtime producer Scott Humphrey.

Following the completion of this year's Ozzfest trek, which features ROB ZOMBIE on the main stage, the singer will start work on his second horror film, the details of which have not yet been divulged.
