It's what you might expect a Rob Zombie movie to be if he had never made another movie, much less some of the most interesting and distinctive horror films of the last 10-15 years.

While hardcore fans of Rob Zombie's black-as-coal humor and grindhouse-horror style will most likely delight in this campy, gore-filled romp, 31 lacks the wit and charm of his early films.

[T]his is relentlessly entertaining, brilliantly bloody, carnie carnage with a career-defining performance from Richard Brake at its heart.

An exercise in fetishized depravity.

Fake intensity...the characters we were supposed to empathize with aren't really developed at all...

Fans of Zombie's work might find some things to love about 31, but it feels like he was kinda phoning it on on this one.

There's a distinction between excitement and excess that Zombie fundamentally fails to process here.

Rob Zombie gave us a film that has everything you expect from a Rob Zombie film: excitement, bloodshed, and bad guys that you can't help but love. This was definitely not his best film, but it was a lot of fun to watch.

A commanding performance from Richard Brake and some impressive visuals combine to make this one of Zombie's stronger works.

Ultimately falls a little short when it comes to matching up with some of Zombie's other features, but there's still plenty of deranged desperation and death here for horror fans to devour.

Still, the star-making performance and strong character work from Richard Blake will leave audiences with something to talk about. What the hell was DC doing not casting him as Joker?

As I watched Zombie's latest endeavor, I was less convinced that he was dealing with powerful philosophies and more apt to believe he was trapped on the hamster wheel of his own overwrought artistic values.

[Zombie's] sort of a Tim Burton wearing a blood-soaked wife-beater, paying homage again and again to the monsters and psychos that shaped his imagination.

A film that is a true guilty pleasure, as dark as hilarious. [Full review in Spanish]

31 may be enough to please some of Zombie's most hardcore fans, but the filmmaker doesn't bring anything new, or refreshing to the table here.
October 23, 2016
It's bloody and noisy and super stylish...
October 21, 2016
Zombie may not be working outside of his comfort zone, but 31 is one of his most impressive films to date.
October 21, 2016
Horror piles on horror, absurdity on absurdity, all of it treated by Zombie with carnivalesque abstraction.
October 21, 2016
It's amazing how a man like Rob Zombie who fancies himself a hardcore horror fan has done little to evolve since his first film "House of 1,000 Corpses."
October 20, 2016
The Rob Zombie brand promises hard-core horror and scuzzy atmosphere, and "31" delivers just that. Even on autopilot, Zombie makes movies that hit hard and leave a stain.
