  • DailyDead
Welcome back, readers, for another installment of Daily Dead’s 2017 Holiday Gift Guide! For day eight, we are going all in on enamel pins, simply because there are so many amazing designs out there and it was hard to narrow down the list. That being said, here’s a list of over 100 horror and sci-fi themed enamel pins that we discovered online, and we guarantee there’s absolutely something for every genre fan out there, so if you need some stocking stuffer or holiday gift ideas, look no further!

Do keep in mind that in most cases, what you see below is only a partial listing of each site’s inventory, so I recommend digging around each online store for all kinds of goodies, because there are some truly amazing enamel pin designs out there (I could have easily done a list of 200, but my sanity won out).

The Fog Star Adrienne Barbeau Refused To Be In The Devil’s Rejects

One thing that can always be expected in a Rob Zombie film is that he often uses horror genre icons and veterans. A great example of this is his 2005 effort The Devil’s Rejects. The House of 1000 Corpses sequel features appearances from stars like Ken Foree, Michael Berryman and P.J. Soles among others, but it turns out that one very interesting actress actually refused to be in the film – none other than Adrienne Barbeau.

She’s a fabulous scream queen you may recognize from the works of John Carpenter like Escape From New York and The Fog, while she also played a role in George Romero’s Creepshow. But according to Barbeau, who recently spoke with Tom Holland’s Terror Time, she wasn’t too interested in taking on The Devil’s Rejects.

“I’ve turned down myriad roles. Sometimes after reading 20 pages of the script. And especially if

Halloween 2017: Devil’s Night Double Feature – The Crow and House Of 1000 Corpses

  • DailyDead
[To get you into the spooky spirit, the Daily Dead team is spotlighting double features that we think would be fun to watch this Halloween season. Check here for more double feature recommendations and other Halloween 2017 coverage.]

In horror movies, things usually go so very wrong on October 31st when it comes to the Halloween-themed offerings of the genre. But what about the night before? October 30th, or “Devil’s Night”, can also bring about its own horrific consequences, which is the theme I went with when it came time to put together my double feature of Alex ProyasThe Crow and Rob Zombie’s House of 1000 Corpses. Both are coincidentally feature film debuts for each director, they feature killer soundtracks, and this pair of films is also centered around a storyline where the characters will never be the same after their experiences on the night before Halloween.

Based on the comic by James O'Barr, The Crow finds aspiring rock star Eric Draven (Brandon Lee) rising from the grave a year after his death to take revenge on the four thugs (David Patrick Kelly, Angel David,

Rob Zombie developing The Devil’s Rejects follow-up

According to Bloody Disgusting, Rob Zombie is getting back behind the camera for a “direct follow-up” to his 2005 film The Devil’s Rejects, which was itself a spinoff from his 2003 debut House of 1000 Corpses.

The site reports that details on the new project are sketchy, especially considering that the main characters Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig), Otis Driftwood (Bill Moseley), and Vera-Ellen ‘Baby’ Firefly (Sheri Moon Zombie) were all killed at the climactic shootout of The Devil’s Rejects. Therefore it’s possible that the new film will be a prequel, or a spinoff.

Zombie’s most recent film 31 was released in 2016 and followed five carnival workers who are forced to participate in a violent game where they have to survive against a gang of sadistic clowns.

10 Horror Movie Reboots Gone Horribly Wrong

10 Horror Movie Reboots Gone Horribly Wrong
Oh, horror movies. Market research showed that more people knew the phrase Texas Chainsaw Massacre than the number of people who had seen it or even knew what it was about. So you know what that means! Reboot time! Now, there's nothing inherently wrong with rebooting a popular film and/or franchise. But there's also no rule that says they have to be bad. Nevertheless, crappy remakes keep plaguing horror fans. We're looking at 10 horror movie reboots that went horribly wrong.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) and Texas Chainsaw 3D (2013)

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is easily one of the scariest movies of all time, no question. Loosely based on true events, put together in the early '70s on a shoestring budget, this thing played like some sorta snuff film. It's chilling. It's such a great horror film that once the sequels stopped coming, Hollywood tried to reboot it not once, but twice.

Rob Zombie Is Bringing ‘The Devil’s Rejects’ Back From the Dead, Possibly as a Prequel

Rob Zombie Is Bringing ‘The Devil’s Rejects’ Back From the Dead, Possibly as a Prequel
The Devil’s Rejects aren’t exactly living up to their name, as Rob Zombie plans to continue their story. Bloody Disgusting has confirmed that the horror-inclined filmmaker will make a trilogy of the saga that began with “House of 1000 Corpses,” Zombie’s directorial debut; how he plans to do that remains a mystery, as (spoiler alert) “The Devil’s Rejects” ended with the eponymous clan of killers dead.

Bd notes that, “while we don’t know any of the story details, we’re expecting it to be another spinoff or possibly a prequel, being that the Firefly family is presumed dead.” In the 12 years since “Rejects” was released, Zombie has directed two “Halloween” movies, “The Lords of Salem,” and last year’s “31.”

Devil's Rejects 2 Is Rob Zombie's Next Movie?

Devil's Rejects 2 Is Rob Zombie's Next Movie?
After more than a decade, Rob Zombie is returning to the franchise that turned him into a modern voice in horror. It's been revealed that Zombie is going to make The Devil's Rejects 2 as his next directorial project. Not many details are known at the present time, but it looks like he's finally going to round out his trilogy, which started with House Of 1000 Corpses and continued with The Devil's Rejects in 2005.

In case you aren't familiar, The Devil's Rejects (arguably Rob Zombie's best movie), serves as both a spin-off and sequel to House of 1000 Corpses and takes the series in a totally different direction. The movie features the Firefly family, with Otis (Bill Moseley) and Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie) escaping a raid on their famous murder house and heading to a remote desert motel. They meet up with Baby's father, Capt. Spaulding (Sid Haig), with the

Rob Zombie’s Been Watching These Movies To Get Into The Halloween Spirit

I’m pretty sure there’s an unwritten law stating that we must gorge ourselves on spooky movies whenever Halloween season rolls around. Unfortunately, most cable networks haven’t gotten the memo and have opted to wait until the week leading up to Samhain before treating us to various horror standards, but that doesn’t mean we can’t dust off some of our own favorites, right?

Not surprisingly, it’s not just everyday folk who are feeling the spirit of the season, but also those who’ve led high profile careers in the entertainment industry. On that note, being a lifelong horror junkie, none of us should be shocked that filmmaker/musician Rob Zombie has been spending some time in front of the TV lately.

Ever since arriving on the scene years ago when he fronted White Zombie, Rob has taken his love for the macabre and applied it

Rob Zombie on Tobe Hooper: 'The Texas Chain Saw Massacre' Changed My Life

Rob Zombie on Tobe Hooper: 'The Texas Chain Saw Massacre' Changed My Life
I remember once reading about a conversation Orson Welles had with PeterBogdanovich about the fact that screen legend Greta Garbo only made tworeally good pictures out of 40.Orson's response was, "Well, you only need one."

Well, Tobe Hooper definitely had "the one." Sure, he made several pictureshorror fans remember fondly such as Poltergeist, The Funhouse and Salem'sLot. But “the one” he will be forever remembered for is The TexasChain Saw Massacre.Game changers arrive on the scene without warning – and in the early Seventies, this movie exploded on screen.

Flashback Weekend 2017: William Forsythe and Lew Temple Reflect on Rob Zombie’s The Devil’S Rejects

From August 4th through the 6th, Flashback Weekend Chicago Horror Con took over the Windy City, and Daily Dead was on hand for all the horror-fied festivities. Throughout all three days, this writer served as one of Flashback’s co-hosts, and brought back some highlights from several of the panels held over the course of the convention.

First up is a discussion on easily one of the greatest horror movies of the last 20 years, Rob Zombie’s The Devil’s Rejects, between two of the film’s co-stars, William Forsythe and Lew Temple. During their panel, the duo discussed their initial feelings on working with Zombie, collaborating alongside their fellow cast members (including the late, great Geoffrey Lewis), which scenes were improvised, and what it is about Zombie as a cinematic storyteller that has fueled them to return on several of his other projects post-Devil’s Rejects.
