The horrors of the Firefly family are far from over, as we can see in the 3 From Hell trailer for Rob Zombie’s movie.
Fans have waited years for this threequel to Zombie’s cult hits House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects, so there will be a lot opinion about how this third chapter of the franchise stacks up to its predecessors. Watch the trailer above.
As seen in the trailer, the crimes of the Firefly family gathered a lot of media attention and a sort of cult following, with people campaigning for their release (hence the tag line “Free The Three”), very much like the Manson Family crimes in the 1970s.
the trailer finally answers the question of how exactly the Firefly family is back for a sequel after The Devil’s Rejects. The psychopathic trio was rushed to the hospital and survived a “less than a million to one” odds of survival, with the newspapers breathlessly calling it a “Satanic Recovery.”
Here is the official, admittedly pretty slim synopsis for 3 From Hell:
First, there was House of 1000 Corpses. Then there was The Devil’s Rejects. Now, from writer/director Rob Zombie comes the next blood-soaked chapter in the most violent crime saga in history… 3 From Hell.
3 From Hell is slated to hit theaters in September, with an exact date TBA.
