Everything we've seen from Rob Zombie's upcoming continuation of the Firefly Clan Chronicles (unofficial trilogy title minted by me in this moment) has taken place inside a prison/courtroom, with Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie), Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig), and Otis Driftwood (Bill Moseley) seemingly on trial for their lives.
Then there's this fucking guy, whoever he is (honestly, if you folks can figure it out, shout at me in the comments - IMDB is no help!):
And Zombie favorite Richard Brake (31, Halloween II) is even making an appearance:
Some have speculated that the Fireflys didn't survive the bloody "Freebird" scored shoot out at the climax of The Devil's Rejects, and are simply on trial in Satan's Court, before probably busting out and taking on the Devil himself. That seems like a bit of stretch, but also not totally outside the possibilities of Rob Zombie's twisted imagination.
The character poster for Otis Driftwood (that Zombie released via his Instagram) seems to paint a clearer picture of what we should probably expect from the shock auteur's next murder rock number:
What if Rob Zombie made his own Manson movie, only he changed the names to fit his fictional characters, and we get to learn how their influence has bled into this anti-real landscape? What if Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time In Hollywood isn't the only Charlie-tinged slice of pulp insanity we receive in 2019?
I don't know about you guys, but this writer's chomping at the bit to find out. Sure, Zombie's cinematic track record is spotty at best, but I've never found one of his films to be boring. Watching him go full-tilt while completing this Firefly trilogy will be a dream come true for this trash maniac.
To be continued in 2019, but expect me to obsess about 3 From Hell at length until then. We all gotta have our hobbies.
