It is a summer of absolute mayhem for triple threat talent Rob Zombie. The musician/director/writer is currently co-headlining the massive North American Mayhem Festival tour with bandmates John 5, Piggy D and Joey Jordison and is also prepping for the special edition release of HELLBILLY DELUXE 2. Set to street on September 28, this deluxe extra-zombified version of HD2 will feature three brand new tracks called "Everything Is Boring," "Michael" and "Devil's Hole Girls and the Big Revolution," as well as a reimagining of "The Man Who Laughs." In addition, the package will include a brand new video for "Mars Needs Women," which was shot during the Gruesome Twosome tour with Alice Cooper, a live version of Cooper's classic "School's Out" with Cooper himself and a DVD tour documentary entitled "Transylvanian Transmissions," along with all-new expanded artwork. Drummer Joey Jordison, who has been touring with Zombie since April, will make his recorded debut with the new Zombie material.
In other news, Rob Zombie and Universal Studios Hollywood are partnering to recognize the nation's top short-form filmmaking horror genre talent with the "Halloween Horror Nights - Rob Zombie Film Competition," offering filmmakers an opportunity to have their scariest short film judged by a panel lead by the multi-media horror auteur. The winner will be rewarded with a premiere showing on Chiller TV, a posting on SyFy.com, a $1000 cash prize and a trip for two to the opening night of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood. Contest entries will be accepted through August 14 and prospective filmmakers are invited to submit short films from 90 seconds to three minutes in length on DVD.
