Surviving 12 hours in Murderworld is no easy task when the likes of Doom-Head, Psycho-Head, and Father Murder lurk through the scenes of Rob Zombie's 31. You can see the aforementioned trio of terror, along with Sheri Moon Zombie's protagonist Charley, depicted in new character posters.

Following its world premiere earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, Saban Films acquired Rob Zombie’s 31 for North American distribution, and they, along with Lionsgate, will release the film in select theaters on October 21st.

“From the visionary mind of the man who brought us House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil's Rejects and Halloween comes the horrific story of five carnival workers who are kidnapped the night before Halloween and held hostage in a large compound. At the mercy of their captors, they are forced to play a twisted game or life or death called 31. For the next 12 hours they must fight for their lives against an endless parade of homicidal maniacs.”

31 stars Malcolm McDowell, Sheri Moon Zombie, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Lew Temple, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Tracey Walter, Pancho Moler, Jane Carr, Ginger Lynn, Richard Brake, Judy Geeson, David Ury, E.G. Daily, Daniel Roebuck, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, and Torsten Voges.
